    V5 Document and road tax

    Hi Cheviot Has this been sorted out yet? Did you ask about who,s name it is taxed in? Name and shame the dealer so other members can avoid them, with a service like this they do not deserve customers.

    V5 Document and road tax

    I should have worded it better and said give Cheviot some advice on this matter. Clive, as I posted earlier, in your opinion, do you think that the dealer may have committed an offense. Ie:- Checking my V5 it states when a vehicle changes hands "Failure to tell DVLA may result in a penalty and/or prosecution" in this case that would be the dealer.

    V5 Document and road tax

    Hi again Cheviot Quote from your first post:- I can see from checking online that the car is taxed until November 2019 but it does not say whose name it is taxed under. Due to the Data Protection Regs you will not see a name, Also can you download and print yourself a copy of that info to show it is taxed? Quote:- Is the dealer correct in saying " ...the vehicle is taxed so it is road legal .." even though it is taxed in their name? I hope they are correct. I would suggest you demand to know from the dealer ASAP who,s name it is taxed in. Have you got a friendly policeman that you know you can have an informal chat with who may be able to do some checks for you?

    V5 Document and road tax

    Hi Nick If as part of the deal or you gave the money to the dealer, as I did, the dealer can tax the car in the new owners name.

    V5 Document and road tax

    Hi Cheviot Quote:- I have checked with the DVLA and they have not received any paperwork from the dealer. Checking my V5 it states when a vehicle changes hands "Failure to tell DVLA may result in a penalty and/or prosecution" in this case that would be the dealer. Quote:- The Ford dealer has just sent me an email within the last few minutes which says:- "....we are still waiting for the V5 to return from the DVLA so we can change it into your personal name. That is why the DVLA confirmed it is not yet registered to you. Once owners are changed on the V5 the road tax will then be in your name. However I have just checked and the vehicle is taxed so it is road legal. We will be contacting the DVLA regularly to ensure this matter is resolved as quickly as possible...." That,s strange, they should have given you the Green Slip, Section 10, New Keeper,s Details and sent the old V5 to the DVLA with your details as the new keeper then then the DVLA would send the new V5 to you not the dealer you bought the car from.

    How long should a Ford Focus coil pack last.......

    Also check the spark plug gap, I set mine to 1.1mm, rather than 1.3mm, as it has been said that this eases the load on the coil pack.

    We do not give out radio codes on this forum, if you have not got it in you user manual then try a Ford dealer or ebay.
