S - Sale of Goods Act

05 June 2006

Sale of Goods Act - The Act of Parliament which sets out the right of consumers to reject new cars which are faulty or not of 'satisfactory quality'. Consumers have around two weeks in which to reject a car. If you think your new car isn't up to scratch, write to the dealer at the earliest opportunity and arrange for it to be returned.

Buyers who purchase their car using finance have longer to reject it, but still only a few months.
