A major reason why individuals prefer purchasing a new car is the warranty it comes along with; a brand new car is generally guaranteed to not have any problems. Contrarily, a preowned or preloved vehicle is not considered suitable in providing the peace of mind. So what happens if your 2015 Outlander Sport starts giving you problem? Are you well-informed about your rights given the car you bought turned out to be faulty?
A Private Sale
This can be a nightmare if you had not taken the process seriously enough, not done your research, and not asked the right questions. The seller is under no legal obligation to provide you with any information unless you have asked for it. If the car is all right to be driven and they are operating within legal boundaries, then you are the one responsible if you have not 'seen" and identified any problems before buying it.
Alternative to purchasing it privately both in person and online, this is the safest route you could have adopted to get your 2015 Outlander Sport. It has the greatest legal protection and as such the least risk associated. Here the dealer is responsible for verifying the recorded mileage, for instance. Not to say you are entitled to an automobile that is perfect for the intended purpose, that it has an acceptable quality, and that it should be exactly (not even close) to the description you were told about in the advertisement or verbally.
The standard to check it against include factors like the history, age, mileage, value, make, safety, durability, and description. In general, the younger the car is and the lower its mileage, the better the deal.
The dealer is hold responsible if there were faults with the vehicle at the time of the deal, irrespective if they were discovered later. Note though, any wear or tear that came by from your use is not the dealer's responsibility nor are they to be blamed if they did point out the defect and you bought the car SUV still. But what's more, the dealer is responsible if they did not have the right to sell it in the first place.
What You Need to Do
If you bought a new or used car from a reliable dealership, follow these steps to fix the issue.
- Check the warranty to assess what are the seller's responsibilities under the given circumstances.
- Get in touch with them as soon as possible once you realized there is a problem.
- It is imperative that you keep a record of all the communication to and fro you and the other party involved. Make sure you have a copy of any and all agreements henceforth in writing as well. If there is something that you did not understand at the time, ask them.
- Same goes for the auto dealership. Request a written estimate for any service you have authorized as well as a complete invoice of the work done. You have the right to inspect it prior to repairs but a guarantee is usually provided by the shop voluntarily.
