Consumer Rights Act 2015 – Rejections and refunds

After 1st October 2015, if a customer has a legally justifiable and Essex Auto Group-approved reason for rejecting their new vehicle within the first 30 days of ownership, a refund will be given without undue delay.

Essex Auto Group will action any agreed refund once the customer is able to recover the V5C registration certificate (log book) from the DVLA and can then hand it over to Essex Auto Group.
