Motorists who have unknowingly bought ex-fleet, ex-business or ex-rental vehicles from used-approved dealers through misleading advertisement could be entitled to anywhere between 25 to 100 per cent of the purchase price back in compensation, leading lawyers have told Auto Express. 

Damon Parker, head of litigation at law firm Harcus Sinclair said a recent ruling by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) now means owners have a “viable case” against used-approved dealers that failed to inform them the car they bought was once used by fleets, rental companies or for business use.

In October this year, the Advertising Standards Authority ruled on behalf of Auto Express reader Ashley Rumbold who complained about two advertisements on Alfa Romeo’s used-approved website. The cars were advertised as having one previous owner, but it was later discovered both were ex-fleet vehicles.

The ASA said: “If a dealer knew that a vehicle was ex-fleet because it had previously been used for business purposes, then that was material information likely to influence a customer’s transactional decision.”

The ruling required the used approved dealer and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the parent group of Alfa Romeo, to ensure future ads do not omit misleading material. A Fiat Chrysler Automobiles spokesman told Auto Express it has already introduced interim measures to inform buyers cars on the company’s used-approved site may be former fleet vehicles.

He added: “In the long term, there will be a change to our online systems so that individual vehicle pages will enable the retailer to flag the status of each vehicle advertised for sale.”

An ASA spokesman said the organisation is now communicating the message to the rest of the automotive industry: “We are telling advertisers that they must include information that they do not currently always include: specifically, if a car is ex-fleet or ex-hire or similar. 

"We are telling them they need to change that aspect of their advertising. If they need to put in place new functionality on their websites to achieve that then they will need to do so.”

But it’s hard to ignore the strength of its competitors: the Honda Civic Type R is just as fast and considerably cheaper, while in-house rival the Volkswagen Golf R is faster and cheaper.

However, the ruling also means that used-approved dealers could be liable to pay refunds to owners who’ve bought ex-fleet or rental cars advertised as being privately owned. Parker said: “The ruling confirms our position that this is a viable claim for people who find themselves misled by dealers.”

Parker said: “An interesting feature of the Regulations is that, where it is impossible to quantify the difference in value  [between the market price for a privately owned car and an ex-fleet, business or hire vehicle] damages are then calculated as a percentage of the purchase price.” 

The percentages vary between 25 and 100 per cent, depending on how severe an omission was made, and how much difference the information would have made to the sale price.

However, an industry-wide litigation suit is difficult, according to Parker. “It’s difficult to put a number on how many people have been affected by this, so we will have to look on a case-by-case basis.”

At this year’s CES, chipmaker Nvidia is showcasing new technology that could enable automakers to develop AI virtual assistants that are far smarter than the in-car versions of Alexa and Siri we’re used to interacting with today.  Nvidia announced two new software platforms for self-driving cars during a press conference on Sunday: Drive IX and Drive AR. The former allows carmakers to create artificially intelligent co-pilots that take advantage of sensors both inside and outside of the car to provide assistance. Volkswagen will be one of the first partners to begin experimenting with Drive IX in its I.D. Buzz prototype.
