Protect yourself. Read these important car-buying tips before you sign!
Friday, January 8, 2016
Did you know that if a motorcycle dealer advertises a price for a bike that price must include all fees and charges the dealer intends to collect; the only additional charges the dealer can add are HST and licensing (or for options the consumer has added).
Remember, consumers who purchase a bike from an OMVIC-Registered Dealer are protected by Ontario’s consumer protection laws and the Motor Vehicle Dealers Compensation Fund. Private purchasers receive neither. If problems arise with a private vehicle purchase the buyer is, basically, on his or her own with little recourse other than the courts.
If you have questions about any vehicle purchase or your consumer rights make sure to stop by the OMVIC booth and get your questions answered! You can even pick up a free Ontario Road Map.
