Starting February 1, new regulations are being introduced for auto dealers to help make buying a vehicle more fair for consumers.
Licenced dealers now have to follow new rules on vehicle history disclosure rates, advertising requirements and minimum warranty requirements on the sale of used vehicles.
The Saskatchewan government says this move is being made because of complaints they received about things like charges which weren’t included and extra fees.
Dealers must also now disclose things like an SGI VIN search, if the odometer has been rolled back and if a new vehicle suffered any damage in transit which would reduce its value by over 20 percent.
The new protections do not apply to private sales.
