Replacing a vehicle with a new one for a consumer at Seeb


The Consumer Protection Department at Seeb has recently been able to replace vehicle with a new one for a consumer by means of a friendly settlement agreement between the consumer and an auto agency as part of its efforts to resolve complaints and communications received from consumers in a friendly manner.



Regarding this case, the department received a complaint from a consumer against one of the car dealerships, in which he reported that there were some defects in his vehicle which he had purchased before the fifteen days of the legal period for replacing the vehicle. The agency received the vehicle and repaired the defect. However, after a period of time, the malfunctions appeared again. In light of this, the consumer complained to the department, which followed the necessary procedures. The officials concerned with the complaint were called in, and in response to the complaint they admitted the defects in the vehicle and it was agreed to replace the defective vehicle with a new one.

Such settlements are an affirmation of the Authority's role in protecting consumers' rights and addressing those who do not comply with the provisions of consumer protection laws and regulations.
