Suspended jail sentence for 'irresponsible' dealer who sold dangerous car - Car Dealer Magazine

Car Dealer Magazine reports that a dealer who sold a dangerously defective vehicle has been given a five-month sentence suspended for 12 months, and ordered to pay £3,500 costs, an £80 victim surcharge, a £150 fine and £2,000 compensation (you almost expect a 10 per cent service charge after reading that menu of charges) after pleading guilty to three offences, to described as 'trading regulation' offences and the third as a 'product safety' offence. The vehicle in question was a Nissan Navara which had major structural defects and severe corrosion - although the trader had described it as being in 'excellent condition throughout'.
