About the market study
In June 2016, the ACCC indicated that the market study would examine whether industry practices are consistent with what we would expect from a competitive market. In particular, practices relating to:
- consumer guarantees and new cars;
- access to repair and service information and data and post-sale service arrangements; and
- fuel consumption, emissions and car performance.
