Inspect the car befor purchase & Know your rights!
Lots of people just aren’t aware of their rights when they buy from a dealer. how many times has it happen to you to buy a car, taking it home and see that there is a major issue with it?
or simply how many times have you gone back to the dealer and being rejected??
before anything you must know that inspecting the vehicle you are buying before purchase is very important. vehicle inspection is a must even if you want to do it yourself or get your friends to do it for you.
well, no matter which part of Australia you are in, the law protects you to some extent.
check out the table below to see what you can and you can’t do when you close a deal with a car dealer:
Warranty – When you buy from a dealer, a car that’s less than 10 years old and hasn’t travelled more than 160,000km carries a three-month or 5000km statutory warranty (whichever occurs first). This also applies to demonstrator vehicles.
Cooling-off period – There’s a one-day cooling-off period once you’ve signed the purchase agreement, but only if you arrange credit with the dealer as well. You must give written notice if you decide to withdraw from the deal within the cooling-off period, the dealer can charge $250 or 2% of the car’s value, whichever is less.
