Road Worthy Certificate -Significant Structural Issues Found When Reselling and during RWC
Last edited 22/03/2019 - 09:59 by 1 other user
So, I just sold my car and while doing RWC to sell it, My mechanic found a structural integrity issue from an accident . I haven't had accident with this car and there were damaged to the front bumper (crack) when I bought the car which I thought was of because of the age of the car.
Front Reinforcement bar was bent and crushed - very badly which cost me $800. Clearly it was sold to me with these issues and the RWC and RWC didn't mention any of these issues 18 months ago when I bought the car.
I have been trying to contact VICROADS to see what they suggest, their lines are so busy and I always end up having to go back to work before getting connected to a person.
My question is, is there any chance that I can get compensation for my extra money spend replacing this and getting RWC and may be also for the risk taken for my life as I was driving a car which was less safe in a collision?
Also, anybody have email of VicRoads roadworthy dept? I had it, now I lost it :(
Thanks a lot for taking time to read this.
Have a great weekend.
