40 CONSUMER INFORMATION 1458.Sep17 Consumer and Business Services Buying a car If buying from a licensed second-hand car dealer you have more protections than buying from a private seller: • There must be a notice on the car window which gives information about the previous owner, distance travelled, warranty conditions, etc. • In many cases cars come with a warranty, in addition to rights that apply under the Australian Consumer Law. • You have a two day cooling-off period. General advice • Take the car for a test drive. • Get an independent mechanical inspection and make the sale subject to your satisfaction. • Buying at an auction may be cheaper, but you can’t test drive the car and a warranty may not apply.
