THE VEHICLE

  1. NEW VEHICLE: If the Vehicle ordered is a new vehicle, the following will apply:
    1. We undertake that the pre-delivery work specified by the manufacturer will be carried out and the Vehicle will be provided with the benefit of the manufacturer’s warranty.
    2. If, after the Agreement is entered into but before delivery of the Vehicle to you, the price is altered, we will give you notice of such alteration and:
      1. if the price is increased, you will be informed of the revised amount to be paid by you. If you do not agree to such increase, you will have the right to cancel the Agreement within 14 days of receiving notice of the increase and any deposit you have paid will be refunded in full. Should you fail to notify us that you do not accept the increase within the 14 days, the increased amount will be added to the final amount to be paid by you; or
      2. if the price is reduced, we will notify you of the reduced price you will be called upon to pay.
    3. If we are unable to deliver the model, specification or Vehicle ordered for any reason, whether before or after the estimated delivery date, we may cancel the Agreement and refund any deposit you have paid in full. This includes models no longer available due to model year changes.
    4. If we are unable to supply any accessory (factory fitted or otherwise) you have ordered as part of the specification, we will contact you and offer either to substitute a reasonable equivalent or to delete the accessory from the Agreement and adjust the purchase price accordingly. Subject to this, you shall have no claim against us in respect of our failure to supply any accessory and shall not be entitled to cancel the Agreement.
    5. We reserve the right to amend the published specification of vehicles without notice.
    6. If you are collecting the Vehicle from our premises, the mileage at delivery will be generally less than 200 miles and will be no more than 500 miles. If the Vehicle is being delivered to the customer’s address, the delivery mileage will be greater by the delivery distance covered.

 

  1. USED VEHICLE: If the Vehicle is a used vehicle, the following will apply:
    1. Where the Vehicle supplied under the Agreement is still subject to the manufacturer’s or (as appropriate) concessionaire’s warranty, it will be sold with the benefit of such warranty. Where you are purchasing as a consumer, this warranty is additional to your statutory rights and is not affected by any change of ownership of the Vehicle.
    2. Where the warranty is available to us, we will provide you with a copy of the manufacturer’s warranty terms on delivery.
    3. The mileage at delivery will generally be within 1000 miles of that shown on the Order Form. If the Vehicle is being delivered to the customer’s address, the delivery mileage will be greater by the delivery distance covered.

 

  1. PART-EXCHANGE VEHICLE: Where we have agreed that you will sell us a vehicle in part-exchange, and its value as agreed with us is to be taken off the purchase price of the Vehicle we agree to supply, the following will apply:
    1. You agree and warrant to us:
      1. that you own the vehicle to be taken in part-exchange absolutely and can transfer ownership to us; or
      2. that if someone else has an interest in the part-exchange vehicle, you will settle that interest so that we become the absolute owners when we take delivery. However, if you wish us to clear that interest for you by paying them a sum of money, the allowance for the part-exchange vehicle will be reduced by that amount.
    2. If we have examined the part-exchange vehicle before entering into this Agreement with you, or you have described the condition of the part-exchange vehicle to us verbally, the vehicle shall be delivered to us in the same condition but allowing for the fair wear and tear which may have occurred in the meantime. If there is any variation in condition, service history or mileage to that previously seen or described but allowing for additional mileage covered between the Agreement and delivery pro-rata to that already covered at the time of Agreement, we will adjust the price offered for the part-exchange to take into account such variations and you will pay us any additional sum due as a result.
    3. The price offered for the part-exchange remains valid until the ‘Part-exchange Offered Price Date Expired’ shown on the Order Form. If the part-exchange vehicle is delivered to us later than this date, we will revalue the part-exchange in line with market conditions and advise you of any change to the amount you may need to pay us. If this is due to a delay in the delivery of your new Vehicle, please refer to clause 24.
    4. The vehicle to be taken in part-exchange shall be delivered to us no later than the date you take delivery of the Vehicle you have ordered. If you do not deliver the part-exchange vehicle at or by the time the Vehicle you have ordered is ready for delivery, you may not be able to take the Vehicle you have ordered, and you might be in breach of the Agreement and liable to us to pay compensation for any losses we may suffer as a result. Such payment to be made within 30 days of our notification to you demanding the same.
    5. Subject to clause f below, ownership of the Vehicle ordered will be transferred to you and that of the part-exchange to us when you take delivery of your order.
    6. If you choose to sell us your part-exchange before taking delivery of your new Vehicle, title for the part-exchange will pass to us at that point. If you subsequently do not take delivery of the new Vehicle for any reason, we shall not be obliged to return the part-exchange vehicle to you, but may refund you the part-exchange allowance offered less any amount we may have paid to settle any interest in the vehicle as specified in clause b.
    7. If you fail to satisfy any of these conditions, we will not be obliged to accept your vehicle in part-exchange or to make any allowance for it and you might as a result be required to pay the whole purchase price for the Vehicle you have ordered before you can take delivery. Such payment to be made within 30 days of our notification to you demanding the same.

 

  1. ACCESSORIES: Any accessories fitted or supplied by us will be covered by any warranty given by the manufacturer of those accessories.

Any images of the Vehicle in our brochures on online are for illustrative purposes only and we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours or the printed pictures in any marketing materials accurately reflects the colour and/or trim of the Vehicle. Your product may vary slightly from those images.

 

  1. VEHICLES MAY VARY FROM SPECIFICATION. All specification details are provided by CAP HPI. Although we do our best to make sure this is correct, there may be times where CAP HPI makes an error and the specification does not match the Vehicle.

It is your responsibility to inspect the Vehicle on delivery and ensure that this aligns with the specification. We give no warranties in relation to any CAP HPI specifications.

FINANCE ARRANGEMENTS

  1. Credit checks: On applying for a finance or lease product via any of our communication channels, your information will be used initially to conduct a soft credit search. This will not register as a full check on your file and will eliminate any unnecessary checks on your credit profile and allows us to get you an approval in principle with the lender that is best suited to your circumstances. If you qualify with a prime lender, further details will be required to gain a full approval, this will then register as a hard search, the rest of our lending panel only register a hard search when you have decided to go ahead with a vehicle and the agreement goes live.

 

If you have applied for a specific type of product, such as contract hire, but are unsuccessful for that type of credit line, we may offer other alternatives that may be more suitable to your circumstance as part of the application process.

 

  1. If you finance your Vehicle from a third-party finance provider, you must understand that we will no longer sell the Vehicle to you. We will sell it to the finance provider who will supply it to you on the terms of the finance agreement. The finance provider will own it until you get title to it under the terms of the finance agreement. Notwithstanding that we are no longer selling the Vehicle to you, you understand that you will still be bound by this Agreement to the extent applicable.

 

  1. Cancellation when you have entered into a finance agreement. If you have entered into a finance agreement to pay for the Vehicle, you will be given a right to change your mind and withdraw from the finance agreement under s66A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 without giving any reason. The exact terms of the right to withdraw will be set out in the finance agreement itself. If you exercise the right, it will bring the finance agreement with the finance provider to an end. It does not automatically mean that you can pull out of buying the Vehicle but, where applicable, you may be able to rely on your right to cancel in accordance with clause 32

 

  1. If you wish to cancel in accordance with clause 32 below, you must at the same time tell your finance provider that you wish to withdraw from the finance agreement by calling them or writing to them on the contact details provided in the finance agreement.
