Complaints & Fair Trading

During vehicle ownership or vehicle purchasing, there may be situations where you encounter unexpected concerns with repairs, servicing or with the vehicle itself. 

Steps to Resolve Issues You May Have

1. Speak or write to the appropriate person in the automotive business such as the customer service representative, manager etc.
2. Clearly outline what your issue is. Include any relevant dates and who you interacted with.
3. Propose a resolution that you'd find satisfactory, such as a repair, replacement, or refund.
4. Maintain open communication and be receptive to the business's perspective and potential solutions they may offer.
5. Set a reasonable timeframe for resolving the issue. Please conduct your own research into the issue and how much time is generally needed to rectify them.
6. Provide your contact information for easy communication.
7. Throughout the process, be calm, courteous and respectful in your interactions.
