On this day, I purchased a brand new car: model and description, and with the following registration number at your store.
Unfortunately, when driving the car this week I found it has not been satisfactory because it is leaking oil from the engine. If you have already taken the car back, state what action has been taken and what the results have been, for example, our mechanic inspected my vehicle and agreed to fix the problem under warranty, however, when I collected the vehicle and started using it again, the problem was still there.
I would appreciate it if you could organize to what you want the dealer to do, for example, have the problem fixed/use another repairer to fix the problem before this day. As I am sure you can appreciate, I rely on my car for transport and apart from the inconvenience, this problem has also caused me to incur an additional cost. I have kept the receipts as proof.
I demand as well as compensation for the waste of my time and money. I look forward to settling this matter amicably. My expectations are high; please don’t disappoint me again. If, however, the matter is not satisfactorily resolved by date, I will consider taking further action to resolve the complaint either through Consumer Protection or through the courts.
Enclosed with this letter are copies of the registration card and other related documents for your reference. Awaiting your reply and actions.
