Call to Action – Motor Dealers
and Repairers Act 2013

< 1 minute to read

The NSW Government is currently reviewing the Motor Dealers and Repairers Act 2013 (the Act). The AADA is urging the Government to strengthen Part 6 of the act which grants protections to Dealers against unfair contract terms and unjust conduct in their relations with Manufacturers.

The AADA has lodged a submission with the NSW Government and we are calling for protections similar to those offered to Dealers in the United States. There have been growing instances of NSW Dealers suffering unconscionable behaviour from car Manufacturers in the years since Part 6 was introduced. The most public of these cases has been the treatment by General Motors of Holden Dealers.

To raise awareness for the issue, we encourage all NSW Dealers to make representations to their local member of the NSW Parliament. The AADA secretariat is here to assist and will develop letters for any members on request.

The AADA has developed supporting materials with useful information you can include in your correspondence:
