    Where to report bad Car Dealers

    Good Day All

    There is a used car dealer ship in Boksburg that is selling accident damaged cars and telling their clients that the cars have never been in an accident and also lying to insurance companies about these cars histories.

    Is there an institute I can report them too. I know someone told me of a place where you can report used car dealerships too.

    Your help would be appreciated.

    Regards

    AFAIK, if the dealer knows about the accident damage, and does not tell the buyer, then he/she is contravening the CPA?
    I may not be certified yet, but I am most certainly certifiable...

    Im not sure what the place was called but most dealers have to follow it. It is fraud. Thing is the Dealer is not just telling his customers wrong info but the insurance is also being told that these cars have not been in accidents.

    There was a case where the dealer sold him a car saying it was stock ,with FSH and and that it was a 1.6 . When taken to a dealership (car brand) they picked up that the car was a 1.4 and had been in an accident

    Re: Where to report bad Car Dealers

    Mmm wonder if its the same dealer I am thinking about....sold my mate a bantam bakkie that was in a serious accident. Told him the car was never in any accidents ect...Only about 5 months down the line when they were changing something on the front left side wheel he saw the repair job...turns out the bantam was involved in a serious accident just up the road from where said dealer is situated on Trichardt Road.

    Can't trust anyone anymore....
