defective vehicle

Within six months after the delivery of goods, a consumer may return the goods to the supplier without penalty and at the supplier’s risk and expense

We did a blog last week on the difference in approach now under the CPA and the previous situation where a consumer could only rely on the common law for a remedy if they bought a defective car and in response, we received the following query:

“Please explain to me how the implied warranty in terms of the Consumer Protection Act works as I also recently bought a defective motor vehicle which has now cost me R 37500.00 to repair and is still not 100%. What are my rights in this instance?”

 business rescue

Business rescue is simply a legal process to assist businesses that are in financial distress

From time to time we get inquiries from business owners whose businesses are struggling financially and who seek advice regarding their options. One of those options is Business Rescue; which is a relatively new commercial concept.

This blog focuses on shedding a little more light on the very complex and technical issue of business rescue and the new Companies Act, which is Act No 71 of 2008; and we are going to focus on Chapter 6 dealing with Business Rescue.

We hope to answer the following question for entrepreneurs and business owners in general:

radiator overheat

We, as consumers, have the choice of repair, refund or replace in the event of goods bought by us being defective or damaged at the time of the sale.

One of the branches of the Law that we specialise in is Consumer Law and often regarding defective motor vehicles. The inquiry was sent to us yesterday.

“Can I sue a dealer who has sold me a defective motor vehicle? My attorney told me to sue them for damages and wanted a  R 15000.00 deposit. What are my options? I bought the vehicle on the 20th January 2018 and it now has a seized engine as a result of a defective water connection pipe and I have been quoted R 66400.00 for repairs. Please advise me in this regard.
