Frequently Asked Questions

What is better buying from a dealer, through an auction, or by private sale?

All three options allow buyers to source quality cars at great prices; however, each comes with pros and cons. Buying from a dealer generally offers greater choice; opportunity to trade in; a safer exchange of title; and some protection under statutory warranty. On the flip side prices can be a little higher. Auctions on the other hand are a great way to secure a red-hot deal, however you may not be able to test drive or inspect the car prior to buying. And, while private sales can provide a better indication of a car’s history directly from the owner, they are typically void of any warranties. The best option for you will depend on your own unique situation and needs, so consider you options and be sure to do your research well.

What is covered under statutory warranty when buying a used car?

If your pre-owned vehicle doesn’t work as intended there are two forms of consumer protection that can help. If buying a used car from a dealer, Australian Consumer Law offers some guarantees which apply in a set timeframe. If a vehicle fails to meet these, buyers can be entitled to a repair, replacement, or refund. Additionally, vehicles purchased from a dealer are also covered by used-car statutory warranties. In NSW this applies to cars less than 10 years old which have not travelled more than 160,000km, and provides buyers with a three-month or 5,000km statutory warranty. This is coupled with a 3-day cooling off period which allows buyers to cancel the agreement in writing with a small payment of $100 or 1%, whichever is greater to the dealer.

What is a novated lease?

A novated lease is a great way to finance the purchase of a used car. It allows buyers to make repayments from their pre-tax salary under a salary sacrifice agreement with employers. It allows buyers to bundle all vehicle expensed into one single payment and can reduce taxable income at the same time. To see whether a novated lease can work for you speak to your employer and car dealership.

Should I run a PPSR search on the car I am interested in?

In short, yes. If you buy a used car only to discover that there is a debt owing on it, you may be liable for the loan repayment or even be at risk of repossession. The good news is that dealerships are legally obligated to guarantee any pre-owned cars are debt free. On the other hand, for vehicles purchased via auction or private seller, this responsibility falls on the buyer. To do this, a quick check can be run on the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) using the car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) and for a small charge of $2 at the time of writing. The search can provide additional information including odometer check, VIN check, first sale information, written off status, stolen status, and status of repair if a part of the Takata airbag recall.

What other information should I secure to assess a used car?

Always seek out a few key items when assessing a used car. This includes registration papers, a stamped service history, log books, and current green slip.
