Exhibition vehicle vs. new car: there are differences!

May a car that is in a dealership as exhibition vehicle was used when selling as a new car be advertised? A Munich court has now ruled on this. It said that an exhibition vehicle is not a new car, even if it has never been driven. This fact was clarified in a judgment by the Munich district court, so that the buyer concerned received a reduction in the purchase price. The plaintiff had purchased a sports car for almost 55.000 euros. This was previously exhibited at a branch by the manufacturer for potential buyers to view. According to her own statements, the woman knew nothing about it. As the court has now announced, is the verdict legally binding.

Exposed to multiple physical uses!

The plaintiff complained that the battery broke just a month later. In addition, she found several damage in the form of scratches, small dents and abrasions on the door sills, which indicated that the car had been used. The manufacturer then brought up the argument that it was indeed a new vehicle. Finally got the vehicle no admission receive and also be for no test drive been used. The battery was replaced free of charge. The court nevertheless ruled in favor of the plaintiff, who was able to look forward to a cost reduction of 1.000 euros. "If a vehicle is exhibited in a branch, an indefinite number of people will touch it inside and out, doors and trunk will be opened several times, people will test sit it, seats will be adjusted, etc.' was the judge's argument. An exhibition vehicle is therefore subject repeated physical use and must therefore not be described as "unused".
