Evans Halshaw denies deception over sale of ex-rental car

EVANS HALSHAW has denied deceiving a customer to whom it sold a former rental car.

A Middlesbrough branch of the firm is accused of engaging in a misleading commercial practice because an advertisement allegedly didn’t give relevant information about the vehicle’s previous keeper, Teesside Live reported.

It has also been claimed that the customer was told ‘the guy who owned it’ caused noticeable scratches on the gear lever.

Both allegations have been denied by parent group Pendragon.

The matter was given an initial hearing at Teesside Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday but no one from the firm was there. The case will now go to a district judge in October.
