Before you file a complaint
Try to resolve your issue with a Sales Manager, General Manager or Dealer Principal
The complaint process
- The VSA receives a completed complaint form and supporting documents
- Your complaint will be sent to the dealer for their response
- Your complaint and the dealer’s response will be researched and reviewed
- You will be advised of the steps that you may take and what action the VSA will take
- You may be referred to another agency if vehicle sales laws do not apply to your complaint
- You may be told there are other remedies available to you
Note: Filling out a complaint form does not guarantee the VSA will conduct an investigation
- The VSA has authority over vehicles sold by licensed dealers for personal use
- Private sales and business-to-business transactions are not covered
- The VSA cannot act as your lawyer or provide legal advice
- If your issue involves a motor dealer that is no longer in business, consider filing a claim for compensation from the Motor Dealer Customer Compensation Fund
