The more you know in advance, you can help yourself in the long run if you think you want to make a vehicle purchase. Note that the „private residence” does not include a private residence which is also the commercial premises of the car dealership. The buyer could also request the reopening of the financing contract if it is unfair (see 76). This application can be submitted either to the Federal Court or to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) (see „Contacts”). An application to the Federal Court can be costly. However, it is free to apply to the AFCA and there is no risk of having to pay legal fees. Some states, such as Massachusetts, have other protective measures to protect buyers from cars in poor condition. For example, if someone in Massachusetts buys a car and there is no safety inspection within seven days of purchase, the buyer can return the car for a full refund. Check your state`s local laws to see what protection car buyers have before trying to negotiate with a dealer, as it certainly causes fewer headaches. Although a contract should not provide that a seller must guarantee the quality of the car sold, quality guarantees are nevertheless included in the contract. These warranties are sometimes referred to as „implied conditions and warranties of quality.” Violations of these warranties can help buyers in any fight with a car dealership. Termination of a car purchase contract is necessary in certain circumstances.
For example, if a dealer promises to deliver a particular vehicle to you on a specific date, it may be necessary to terminate the contract if the dealer does not deliver. In other cases, a contract may need to be terminated because financing cannot be secured or because there are physical or mechanical defects in the vehicle. The car contract, also known as a purchase order, is the document describing the vehicle you purchased as well as the financial details of the transaction. The document must be signed by both the buyer, the car dealer or a plenipotentiary representative of the dealer. . . . .
