GF impulse-bought a car she knew I wouldn’t approve of so I wasn’t involved (2014 Citroen C3 which actually seems quite good so far). She signed up for a three year defect guarantee deal with monthly payments. It specifies only genuine parts, only Citröen garages etc. so is unreasonably restrictive.

The scheme doesn’t want her to bail out of course but can she just stop the payments?

Check with trading standards but I think it may come under unfair contract terms.

prob not. there may be a clause that would incur some penalty for ending contract early. but also there may be a cooling off period.

read it carefully. as just stopping payments may damage credit score

If the contract is dependant on ownership of the car she could sell it to you to end the contract and then buy it back again. :wink:
