Mario Kart 8 DLC not working?

I recently purchased a Wii U, It was a bundle that came with Mario Kart 8, and all the DLC (downloadable content) pre-installed. Something to note is that the Wii U I purchased was pre-owned, I have no clue if this has something to do with the issue or not. The issue is that when I play Mario Kart 8, it says I still need to buy the DLC? If anyone could answer, it would be much appreciated, thank you.

    Downloaded content is tied to a user's Nintendo account, not the console, so the previous user must have claimed the DLC on their account.  Unfortunately, you will need to buy the DLC if you want it.

    The DLC for the bundle will already have been claimed against the previous owner's account, and so cannot be claimed again!
