The Motor Industry Code of Practice for New Cars was the first code of practice in any industry to gain ‘full approval’ under the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme. The New Car Code provides reassurance to motorists when they’re making what is likely to be one of their biggest lifetime purchases. The Code covers the manufacturers’ obligations to you through advertising, warranties, availability of replacement parts and complaints handling. With all volume vehicle manufacturers on the UK market subscribing to the Code, its terms apply to over 98% of all new cars sold each year.
The New Car Code Covers:
- New Cars under manufacturers warranty
