Dealer who sold 'clocked' car must pay €3,500
A CAR dealer has been ordered to pay €3,500 to a customer after he was convicted of selling a "clocked" car with a false mileage reading.
The National Consumer Agency (NCA) brought the case which was the second such conviction in a month.
Nigel Brophy of Service Point Autos, Eurohaul Centre, Greenhills Road, Tallaght, Dublin 24, was convicted at Dublin District Court yesterday, under the Consumer Protection Act 2007, of providing false information on a vehicle's odometer reading.
Mr Brophy was ordered to pay €3,500 in compensation to the customer and costs to the NCA. NCA director of commercial practices, John Shine, said that it took the issue very seriously and would continue to investigate complaints.
