Buyer Beware: Purchase Contracts Changing Without Notice – Kia Motors Canada

There’s an unfortunate ongoing problem in our mostly unregulated free marketplace whereby a vendor promises something to a customer, but in the sales contract there’s a disclaimer stating that the company can change the agreement at any time without notice to the customer. In other words, the customer is agreeing to a binding agreement that is ever changing in ways that benefit the seller and take advantage of the buyer.

The video below is just another example of this problem. In this case, Kia Motors in Canada is using a disclaimer to sell vehicles from inventory that closely fit a customers request, but don’t precisely match what the customer has requested and paid for. Because of the disclaimer, Kia dealerships can state that the customer was informed they might not get what they paid for.
