None of us normally read the legal fine print when ANY carmaker sells a vehicle via a dealer: if we did I suspect we'd find that they limit their legal liabilities to warranties, that is one of the very reasons they prefer to retail through dealers, otherwise given that dealers enjoy good margins why would they not setup company owned retail operations and internalize profits? The commercial risks but also the liability risks are shared between the dealer and the car company: that is the whole rationale from their point of view of the via-dealers retail model. Which is why it is VERY unlikely an e-commerce solution to car retailing will ever takeoff. Of course consumer courts in common-law countries like India presumably have the reasonable freedom to, in ambiguous cases, pin the firm down too. And often have in many reported cases. I don't know whether Indian consumer courts entertain a 'caveat emptor' (buyer beware...of risk liability he takes on) argument?
