PACP at Sur replaces a vehicle in a more-than RO 8 thousand-worth deal


The Public Authority for Consumer Protection (PACP) at Al Sharqiyah South has replaced a vehicle for a consumer who submitted a complaint against an auto agency. 


The consumer said that he asked the auto agency about the new model of the vehicle, and he was told that the new model will be available after one month; so, the consumer accepted to buy an old model. 
After one day only of completing purchasing and receiving the vehicle, the consumer read an advertisement at a local newspaper announcing the arrival of the new model. The consumer went back to the auto agency to replace the vehicle by a new one, but the person-in-charge refused.
After taking the legal investigations and reports and the procedures required for having a settlement, PACP succeeded in replacing the vehicle for the consumer by the new one.
