     On Friday last week; I received an email which read:

     “If I have bought a defective, or a previously accident damaged, vehicle; what are my consumer rights and how do I enforce them?”

     This is simply a question but the answer to it; not so simple.

    Firstly, you have certain common law rights eg not to be sold a defective “merx” (Item).

    However, you also have legislation which protects you In the form of the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA)

    Your remedies in terms of that Act are set out in Chapter 3.
