Basically, is 'I think...' weasel words I need to learn to spot?
Car dealer told us on car inspection 'I think there are two alarm fobs for this car'.
When the car turned up on delivery there was only one.
Car dealer naturally thinks that 'think' doesn't imply 'know'.
I naturally think that 'think' equates to 'know'.
That's the basics of it but perhaps upping complexity a small notch: if they said 'I think that there are two, but I'll need to check' - but then did not advise the result of the check, and then tried to pull a 'you didn't ask if I had checked so it's your fault' approach, does that change anything?
(he says he said he'd need to check, but I don't think he did - regardless, I'd like to know the legal implications either way)
None of this was in writing.
