Motor Industry Code of Practice for New Cars

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK subscribes to the Office of Fair Trading Approved Motor Industry Code of Practice for New Cars. This consumer code sets out standards with which we comply regarding:

  • Advertising
  • New Car sales
  • Car Manufacturer’s Warranties
  • Availability of replacement parts
  • Complaints Handling

The new Code, currently progressing through the Office of Fair Trading's approval scheme, is a fully independent, consumer-focussed scheme backed by industry, government and consumer groups.

Launched in August 2008, the Code safeguards consumer interests by helping to identify responsible garages and encouraging the sector to set and maintain a high standard of customer service. Developed to respond to consumer concerns over pricing, quality of work and customer service, it offers motorists:

  • A free consumer advice line
  • Free conciliation and low-cost, legally binding arbitration
  • An online search facility allowing consumers to locate their nearest subscribing garage

Motor Codes has the full support of:
