patent defect vs latent defect

  • defective motor vehicle

    Your right to a repair, a refund or a replacement of a faulty vehicle and where that right comes from

    What are your remedies in law and in particular in terms of the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) and also the common law; if you have bought a vehicle which now has material defects?

    At The Legal Advice Office we still get numerous queries from members of the public regarding defects in vehicles which they have recently purchased from a dealership or even from a private individual and where there are clearly material defects in the vehicle or where they have been misled as to the condition of the vehicle or were not told about previous accident damage or other material issues.

    In these circumstances, the consumer has the protection of both the common law of contract and also the CPA.
