Can I complain about a mis-sold car warranty policy?
If you feel that you have been mis-sold car a warranty policy, check to see if you’re still within your cooling-off period – as then you will be able to cancel it.
However, if the cooling-off period has expired, you should notify the seller of your warranty as soon as possible – that could be the warranty company directly or another business, like a dealership. Give them all the reasons for why you think the policy has been mis-sold and then they will investigate your concerns and issue you with a response.
Make sure that, in the first instance, you contact the seller of your policy who may or may not be the warranty company. In some cases, even if a dealership sold the policy, the warranty company may be held liable for the mis-sold car warranty policy but it’s best to get in touch with the seller first.
