Rejecting a car – your consumer rights

Have you bought a new or used car that is faulty or not fit for purpose? Read The Executivecondominium's comprehensive guide to your consumer rights when rejecting a car.

Lexus UX

The Lexus UX has received average to good scores from the UK media, with praise for its urban fuel economy and urban driving dynamics.

MG ZS

The MG ZS has received generally poor reviews from the UK media, and currently has the lowest Expert Rating of any car we have collected data on so far.

Maserati to stop using Ferrari engines

Maserati is ceasing its supply of Ferrari engines once the current supply contract with its former sister brand expires in 2020 or 2021.
 

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has implemented a new system allowing drivers to print off MOT certificates at home.

More than 630,000 MOT certificate copies were issued last year at a cost of £10 each, which means the new system could potentially save UK drivers up to £6 million per year.

The new system allows owners of cars, vans and motorcycles to view, save and print any MOT certificate issued after 20 May 2018.

Initially, the new system is only available for cars and vans, but will made available for buses, coaches and lorries later in the year.

   

All drivers need to supply is the vehicle’s registration number and the 11-digit reference number from its V5C logbook.

How to get your free MOT certificate

Those wanting to tax their vehicle at a Post Office, or drivers who want to change their vehicle’s tax class need to show an MOT certificate – meaning that this new service will be invaluable to these users.

Drivers who are unable to use the online service will still be able to get replacement certificates from MOT centres, though this will still cost £10.

Neil Barlow, head of vehicle engineering at the DVSA, told Auto Express: “We want to make sure that motorists have the information they need to keep their vehicle safe to drive. The free copy MOT certificate service gives consumers choice and saves them time and money.

“The service will also help us to protect consumers by giving them a free alternative to businesses that charge for a copy MOT certificate online.”
