Thumbs down Maruti Dealer in Chennai cheats a customer.

Today when i saw Sun news at 7.30 Am ,they said that a Maruti dealer in chennai has cheated a person Shankar by selling a second hand defective car as new one to him and this person was also saying the same.
Does anybody have any idea on this?

is it possible to register a 2nd hand car as a new car?

or was it a test drive vehicle which wasn't registered at all?

Dealers are known to sell demo cars to customers.

3M had developed a sticker that would damage the body paint and base preparation so badly that dealers wernt tempted to sell this as a new vehicle.

I ve also noticed this when we picket up a scooty for my wife. The speedo cable was disconnected when delivery happened. So the scooter could have been used by their staffs.

Second hand car cannot be registered as a new car ?
may be a new car but used for demo or by the dealer people and then sold to some one who is not familiar about a new car and formalities?

As Eddy correctly asked, is this news genuine one?? if yes, then it could have been reported in the other new papers also?

There has been no information supporting the original claim. Hence this thread is closed.
