Nothing New

THE NEW legislation on low mileage/nearly new cars has got the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), the mouthpiece of the automotive status quo, extremely amped up.

“The FCAI has repeatedly called on the Government to carefully consider the facts before making a policy decision that will mislead everyday consumers,” FCAI Chief Executive Tony Weber said. “Not only is the Government taking a ‘buyer beware’ sentiment that would see many Australians caught in high-risk situations with their vehicles being outside established service networks; the Government is misleading consumers by telling them a used vehicle with 500kms or one that is twelve-months old, is new.”
