File a written complaint with the seller. Do not have your vehicle repaired before contacting the dealer. Please note that the seller is primarily entitled to rectify the error, which may mean that the seller wants to rectify the defect in Germany. If you have the fault repaired before the response time has expired without the seller refusing to rectify the error, the seller is generally free from liability. If the seller does not respond to your complaint or denies responsibility for the error, contact the European Consumer Centre as soon as possible and preferably before repairing your car in Finland.
