If the car was to be purchased through Suzuki Financial Services, you must pay any collection fee directly to the selling dealer. You must be available to hand over the keys to the selling dealer at the agreed time and location. Only one attempt to collect the car will be made.

- Where a car is returned and the selling dealer cannot provide a suitable alternative car as a replacement, or you do not want an alternative, if the car was purchased in cash the price paid for the car (excluding delivery charges and any other applicable deductions as outlined above) will be returned by exactly the method as it was originally paid. If the car was to be purchased through Suzuki Financial Services, the selling dealer will refund to Suzuki Financial Services the amount it paid for the car and any additional extras and you must pay any delivery charge and any other applicable deductions as outlined above directly to the selling dealer.
- You must return the car’s V5C (Log Book) to us when you return the car. You must also return all keys, manuals and other accessories or loose items that were supplied to you with the car or otherwise in connection with the original purchase.
- If a vehicle was part exchanged as part of the new car purchase it will not be returned. Instead, the selling dealer will reimburse the part exchange value stated on the purchase invoice. The selling dealer may elect to return the vehicle if it is practical to do so –but this is entirely within the selling dealer’s sole discretion and it should be assumed that the part-exchanged vehicle will not be returned to you.
Section 2: Your Right of Withdrawal: where you have entered into a finance agreement to pay for the car
- If you have entered into a finance agreement to pay for the car you have a right to change your mind and withdraw from the finance agreement under s66A of the Consumer Credit Act1974 without giving any reason. The exact terms of the right to withdraw will be set out in the finance agreement itself. If you exercise the right, it will bring the finance agreement with Suzuki Financial Services to an end. It does not automatically mean that you can pull out of buying the car but Suzuki GB will allow you to exercise the 14-Day Return option on the terms set out in section 1.
- If you wish to withdraw just from the finance agreement and keep the car you must tell Suzuki Financial Services by calling them or writing to them on the contact details provided in the finance agreement. You must then pay Suzuki Financial Services the amount payable by you on your withdrawal from the finance agreement as explained in the finance agreement.
- If you wish to withdraw from the finance agreement and exercise the 14-Day Return option you must ensure that you follow the procedures for return of the car within the returns period as set out in section 1 above. On return of the car the selling dealer will return to Suzuki Financial Services the amount it paid for the car and any additional extras.
- If you fail to return the car within the 14 day period you will not be able to benefit from the 14-Day Return option set out in section 1 but you will remain liable to pay Suzuki Financial Services the amount payable by you on your withdrawal from the finance agreement as explained in the finance agreement.
