My name is David and I bought a 2010 model Subaru Legacy Sports Tourer 2.0D SE Nav Plus, registration number BF59ODL from Pentagon Motor Holdings Ltd of Pentagon Island, Nottingham Road, Derby. DE21 6HB, on Friday the 13th of May 2011.
After some problems with the vehicle came to light I started a to do a little detective work, and this led me to find out the REAL HISTORY behind the Subaru that Pentagon sold to me as you will find out through reading my blog on this website.
I believe that BF59ODL was mis-sold to me by Pentagon Motor Holdings Ltd because I was not told the true history of this vehicle when I asked the Pentagon Motor Holdings salesman for it. If I had known its true history at the time I would not have purchased the vehicle. Pentagon’s salesman Mr Martin Hudson told me in the presence of my Father that the vehicle had been a Subaru area manager’s car. He did not tell me that it had in fact been used by the press as is evident here: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/longtermtests/253576/subaru_legacy.html
I have 8 A4 pages of calendar entries, a list of phone calls and a pile correspondence to date to illustrate the story so far and the saga still continues.
To start from the beginning click “Timeline of Events Blog” and go to the oldest post and work your way up.
I took the decision to create this site on the 5th of March 2012.
I still have the option to issue proceedings against Pentagon Motor Holdings Ltd and I retain the right to issue proceedings until the 12th of May 2017 under s.2(1) of the Misrepresentation Act 1967.
I have not been using the vehicle since I asked for my money back from Pentagon Motor Holdings Limited and to carry on storing, insuring and taxing a vehicle that I cannot use, as I have done for nearly 4 months, is not an option any more so I have started to use the vehicle again.
My partner Helen and I have been seriously inconvenienced and put to substantial cost as a result of this situation. I feel a line needs to be drawn under the it and that Pentagon Motor Holdings Limited should be made aware of it.
Up until now I have not mentioned the situation to the press or written about it on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. However, writing here breaks my silence.
If Pentagon Motor Holdings Limited resolve the situation in a satisfactory manner at any time in the future I will update this site accordingly.
