With the statement made by the owner , the company announced that it has made some important changes in order to increase transparency in automobile sales and protect the consumer. The new decisions are thought to be related to the 6 months and 6 thousand km limit introduced last week.
In line with the new decisions, only authorized dealers will be able to post new motor vehicles in automobile advertisements . All dealers, except authorized dealers, will only be able to select Second Hand as Vehicle Status criteria . In addition, a minimum of 6 thousand options will be selected due to the limitation of 6 thousand vehicle kilometers for second-hand vehicles .
The Decision Taken by the Ministry of Commerce is Now Applied to the Owner
With the addition of this option, the vehicle’s mileage information will be important along with the zero or second hand phrase of the vehicle on the page where the advertisement is. These new changes are expected to be available on September 15 at the latest.
In addition to these changes, the current list prices of the same vehicle can be listed on the same page on the advertisement page where any automobile is sold. In this way, the consumer will have better information about the market of the vehicle.
