Don't be fooled by dishonest car sales people
Voetstoots doesn't mean dishonest sellers can just get away with selling defective goods – the Consumer Protection Act is there to protect buyers. The law allows for buyers to cancel the contract or sue the seller for a lower selling price if:
the article had the defect at the time of the sale
the seller knew of the defect
the seller did not disclose the defect
the seller deliberately hid the defect knowing that if the buyer saw it, he (the buyer), would either not have continued the purchase or would have negotiated a better price
The seller knew of the defects and did not tell the buyer about them
The seller misrepresented the article, whether fraudulently or not.
Don't be fooled by dishonest car sales that could leave you broke. #StaySmart
