Hereby you find an example of an agreement obtained by the Belgian Conflict Management Centre (CEBEGECO)

Dispute with a garage concerning a vehicle with a latent defect (intermittent breakdown)

A vehicle - still under guarantee - had a recurring problem.

In the beginning, the garage supported the first repairs, but started sending invoices claiming it could no longer intervene for free in such a context. The customer had to contact the importer.

As this did not solve the problem and the vehicle constantly broke down, the customer decided to try mediation.


A settlement was reached with the car dealer, and the vehicle was finally replaced.
