    I'd blame the garage, point out they have given you an unroadworthy car.

    Expalin your situation and negotiate a deal or you will go to the press if needed, so look for some money off explain your loss of earnings perhaps suggest they can source a PCO rental car for you or you will rent a car and they cover expenses.

    Worth a try anyway

    Good Luck

    Should have asked for a printout confirmation of job.

    Go back to a dealer and tell ask for a written confirmation that recall has been executed.

    If refuse, tell them you’ll sue them as they sold you at first place road unworthy vehicle and it is against the law.

    Quote:
    Motor traders that sell cars with outstanding safety recalls are breaking the law the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) warns today, as it launches a new service designed to help people buying cars – and dealers themselves – check if cars are safe.

    The regulations1 say that dealers need to get cars with outstanding recalls fixed before selling a car on to a consumer. If they don’t, they can be prosecuted by Trading Standards.

    So what was the recall for?

    Last recall on the Prius was for vehicles built upnto May 2018.

    Thats the latest Recall on VOSA.

    I assume NSL use the same database

    the new arrivals was March and this one was the only one left i could buy brand new ,i think it was the show room car so might be produced before March 18

    i have already got the print out but not sure the inspection centre would accept it as on the website still comes up as outstanding recall,hopefully they would accept and pass the re test on Tuesdaay
    thanks

    I never said March, I said May.

    Are you saying your Prius has been in UK stock since May 2018?

    Seems strange given how popular they are.

    What was the recall for?

    As NSL would have told you and given you paperwork for the reason for the Inspection Failure.
