There are a number of things to consider when buying a new car.
REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA — Buying a new car is done with a number of procedures that need to be considered by consumers. This needs to be done to avoid people who want to take advantage of the car buying process.
Quoted from Honda’s website on Monday (3/10/2022), one of the procedures that must be followed when buying a car is the provision of a vehicle order letter (SPK). This means that consumers do not make any payments before receiving the SPK.
After receiving the SPK, the consumer needs to make sure that the SPK is an official letter from the dealer. Then, the consumer must read the details in the SPK. The SPK will usually detail the model, type and price of the car purchased. Therefore, make sure every detail is in accordance with the agreement.
After the SPK is deemed appropriate, then the consumer can make payments. Make sure payment is only made by transfer to the dealer’s official account as stated in the SPK. If it turns out that the consumer gets directions to make a transfer outside the account, then the consumer has the right to complain about it to customer service.
Or, if the consumer wants to make a payment using cash, the payment can be made through the cashier at the dealer. After that, the consumer must receive a receipt from the dealer as a valid proof of payment.
Furthermore, consumers can sign the SPK and then receive a copy of the SPK as proof of a valid transaction. By carrying out these various stages, it is certain that consumers will be protected from various potential frauds when buying a car.
