Used Vauxhall Zafira B sales 'may have been illegal if repairs not carried out'

Car Dealer Magazine reports that used Vauxhall Zafiras appear to have been sold without repairs having been carried out. The model is currently undergoing its second recall, the magazine reports. The problem was revealed on the radio consumer programme, You and Yours, and Car Dealer asserts that it may be illegal to sell the car without attending to the repairs. The DVSA states in official guidance that dealers have to check for outstanding recalls and attend to repairs before selling the car, whether to a consumer or in the trade. It doesn't cite chapter and verse, but it is clear that a car that had not been fixed could be unroadworthy as well as being not of satisfactory quality. Criminal and civil laws could be engaged.
