Sold a life-threatening Toyota for DKK 90,000 – now he is bankrupt

In the Norwegian city of Trondheim, a 15-year-old Toyota HiAce was sold as new. However, the car turned out to be full of rust, and now the dealer has gone bankrupt.

A car dealer in the Norwegian city of Trondheim has gone bankrupt after the workshop sold a rusted-out Toyota HiAce as new.

This is written by Norwegian Motor .

The workshop sold the car for 124,000 Norwegian kroner, corresponding to just under 90,000 Danish kroner. All in the attic that it was newly seen.

However, an inspection of the car showed that it was so damaged by rust that it was in no way safe to let loose in traffic. In any case, it should never have been seen.

Both Norway's response to FDM, NAF, and an authorized Toyota workshop believe that the car is dangerous. But the serious rust attacks are so far from the car's only problem.

The handbrake turned out not to work, the dealer could not prove that the timing belt, as otherwise promised to the buyer, had been replaced. The promised winter tires were also not included in the deal.

The case ended up in the legal system, where the driver ended up being successful in both the city and county courts. Among other things, because the car dealer acknowledged along the way that the car was not in safe condition.

After the verdict, the car dealer did not want to answer questions from the press. But his company, which carried out the inspection, has now been forcibly dissolved by the authorities.

The so-called 'cheat sightings' of cars are unfortunately not a new phenomenon. Not even here at home, where it is so widespread that a majority in Christiansborg last year felt it necessary to tighten the legislation.

However, the Swedish Transport Agency, which is responsible for the area, is not yet ready with an unloading that meets the new rules. Therefore, the requirements have been postponed. Read more about it here .
