If you earn a few quid or have come into a bit of money, you might decide that treating yourself to a brand new car will be a good idea. Although pricey, buying a new motor off the forecourt does come with advantages.
It may be true that your new car will start to depreciate in value the very moment you drive it off the forecourt, but it will come with a warranty that will mean you won’t have to worry about any maintenance issues for a good few years. Really, a brand new car should not experience any problems for a good long while anyway, but things can go wrong.
Most times, if anything does go wrong with a new car, all that will be required is a trip to a service centre. While your car is being repaired, it will be likely that you will be provided with a courtesy car of at least the same standard as yours. However, in rare cases, design faults on new cars can result in in accidents that cause the driver injury.
If you were to be involved in any such accident, you may be able to make faulty product claims in Waveney.
