    Default Selling a car - what safeguards

    We all know the new Consumer Act is in force but I am unsure how it affects one if you are selling a car.

    Can the buyer return it at any time if he doesn't like it or claim there are hidden defects. Surely the seller has some rights in this process?

    The consumer act is only applicable to companies; it has no effect on private sales. So if you sell the vehicle through a company or sell a company owned car you may be forced to take the car back, but if it's a private individual that sells the vehicle the consumer act will have no effect on the sale.
