Rambaran said that in cases where they received complaints from consumers they were able to sit down with both parties and come up with mutual agreements.“Suppliers are willing to comply when they find that most of the issues coming up can be dealt within the confines of the law, we also find that more businesses are complying with the regulations.”In the meantime Rambaran said that the CCAC will continue to work with other organizations including the GNBS to fulfill their mandate.Meanwhile at the seminar which was attended by most auto dealers from around the country and other stakeholders,Cheap Jerseys, CCAC Economist Haroon Khan highlighted some basic rights of a consumer when purchasing a vehicle.“All dealers of reconditioned, refurbished and used vehicles must provide the consumer with a warranty of six months on parts and labour,” Khan stated.Director of CCAC Seema Rambaran.Khan said that the Act also provides for dealers or franchise holders selling new vehicles to provide manufacturers’ warranty which would be more than six months.Dealers were also informed that they are to be held liable if a consumer is “unintentionally injured” or incurs a financial cost as a result of some incident after paying for the vehicle. Compensation in the event of such an incident should be paid to the consumer within a seven-day period.
