Re: Seat belt problem...
I'm a little confused as to how the vehicle was sold. Was this vehicle sold "AS IS" or was this vehicle sold with a safety certificate? In my area, if you go to put a car on the road, you have to provide a "cert" that the vehicle meets minimum safety requirements. i.e. Working brakes, functional headlights, signal lights, etc. That said, it goes without saying that you have to have fully functioning seatbelts as that's part of the *safety* equipment of the vehicle.
I don't know if this applies within your area. If it does, and the dealer provided the safety certificate, then the selling dealer certainly should do rightful thing and either fix the problem with the seat belt or cover the cost of such repair. You may want to consider calling the selling dealer and discussing the issue with them and ask them to reimburse you for the repair. You never know, they may cover 100% or a portion of the cost.
If it was sold "AS IS" or with no safety certificate, then you likely are on your own for the repair.
Good that you got the seat belt buckle fixed though.
