BLOCK EXEMPTION

What is Block Exemption?

Following an investigation in the 1990s into Cartels, restrictive practices and anti-competition tactics by major manufacturers in many types of business, the law was changed to prevent these practices and open up the markets. The motor industry was given a temporary reprieve from these new laws - the Block Exemption.

 

However, in October 2003, the Block Exemption was lifted. (Despite strenuous lobbying by the motor industry)

 

So, what does it mean? 

 

The important issues are:

 

Your car can be serviced wherever you choose, as long as the manufacturers recommendations are followed and here’s the best bit - THE MANUFACTURER’S OR USED CAR WARRANTY CANNOT BE INVALIDATED.

 

If anybody suggests that a vehicle is devalued because it has not been dealer maintained, they could actually be breaking the law.
