Don't be taken for a ride
If your new car is defective, you should be offered a refund.
A new car is one of the biggest purchases you’ll make in your lifetime. But if you get stuck with a lemon, you’ll spend more time in the repair shop than you will on the road – even if you’ve only owned it for a few months.
Recently, car companies like Toyota have adopted a 60-day refund policy meaning that if you buy a new car and it doesn't work, you can easily obtain a refund.
However, most of our favourite car companies are stalling on our refund rights, with Nissan, Ford, Honda, Mazda and more making no promise they'll provide a refund if you get stuck with a lemon. If we make it loud and clear that people expect more from these car companies, they’ll have no choice but to step up their refund practices for dodgy cars.
