    Under the Sale of Goods Act the dealer has to give you 6 months warranty (assuming it was NOT a private sale). If he protests, as he will, call Consumer Direct and ask them to pass your complaint to Trading Standards.

    The dealer does not have a choice; it is a legal requirement so the answer is yes.
