    Is it unreasonable to believe I should have been told that the cam belt would need to be changed in a number of months by the dealer. Have I any recourse? would this come under not disclosing important information about the vehicle ?

    Hi Paul. No, you won’t have any legal recourse on this.

    It might have been a courtesy for the dealer to tell you, but it is your responsibility as an owner/buyer to understand the vehicle’s service schedule and maintenance requirements. That includes asking to see the service history on a used vehicle before purchasing, and familiarising yourself with major maintenance costs and schedules like a cambelt change.

    If you specifically asked the dealer about it and were lied to (and you could prove it), that would be a different story.
