what happened and how can I claim 2,000 to 9,000 euros if I am affected

It is possible that to many the case of the ‘dealer cartel’, but if these days you are reading or seeing something in the media on the subject, let them know that it is more serious than it seems from the name, well there are more than 10 million affected in Spain.

What are we talking about? Let’s put ourselves in context. Does almost 10 years the National Competition Commission (CNMC) opened an investigation to several vehicle distribution companies (dealers) to check if they were carrying out practices contrary to the Competition Law, either setting prices or conditions of sale.

Effectively, up to 147 points of sale were involved in carrying out fraudulent commercial actions, such as pricing or exchange of commercial information, affecting no less than 10 million Spaniards. Therefore, the case was taken to court and, at last, those affected can claim.

How to claim if I am affected and how much can they give me

The Supreme Court has been ratifying in recent months the complaints filed by the CNC and those affected can now claim their compensation. And who can do it?

We talk about models of cars marketed between 2006 and 2013Therefore, after that date it cannot be claimed. To know if you are one of those affected, there are tools available for this, such as this page Launched by the Group of People Affected by the Car Cartel (AACC).

These buyers were victims of estimated cost overruns of about 10% on the amount paid. That is, they will be able to obtain between 2,000 and 9,000 euros.

How to do it? There are several ways: collectively, with platforms such as the Group of People Affected by the Car Cartel, or the OCU, which has already in fact filed lawsuits; or individually by going to the relevant court.

To claim You must provide the purchase invoice, or the invoices for the amount paid if we are talking about renting or leasing, and the amounts that have been paid in claims (for this type of thing it is important to save the invoices). Likewise, you must bring the purchase-sale contract or contracts and the technical sheet of the car.

And the safest thing is that, if everything is in order, the complaint will succeed. In fact, there are already barrage of complaints, which will increase in the coming months.
