A recent Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) investigation discovered widespread evidence of mis-selling on all types of vehicle financing.
Customers were offered finance packages, to purchase their car, including PCP, hire purchase, contract hire and car loans, that included hidden/secret commissions paid to the car dealership or salesperson.
Car dealerships and salespersons were incentivised to offer finance packages with higher interest rates to increase their own commission.
This meant that customers were unfairly paying more than they should.
You can claim for any mis sold car finance agreement that you entered within the last 10 years.
If you bought the car on finance and were not told about the amount of commission the dealership or salesperson was receiving from the company that provided the finance, then you may be able to claim compensation.
It is the responsibility of the car dealership to explain the finance options clearly to you:
Did the salesperson adequately explain the finance packaged they offered you?
Were all finance options that were available explained to you?
Were all interest rate options explained to you?
Was the best interest rate available offered to you?
Hidden commission is where the car dealer sells you the finance package for the car but does not tell you that they are getting a commission or how much commission that are getting.
If the payment of commission and the amount of commission has not been explained, then you can make a claim for compensation.
