What is the Mediation Program?



The UCDA provides a free Mediation Program to help resolve issues between the consumer and dealer. Our specialized team of mediators ensure that both dealer and consumer are given a fair opportunity to make their points. The program is designed to help resolve matters quickly and efficiently, often within a few days of the launch of the concern.

The goal of the UCDA mediation program is to intervene with issues that have not been properly addressed to the satisfaction of either the dealer or the consumer.

Who is Eligible to Use the Mediation Program?



The Mediation Program is available to any consumer involved in a used vehicle transaction, even if the seller is not a UCDA dealer. The UCDA has even successfully assisted consumers who have purchased a vehicle from a curbsider.

Consumers are often referred to the UCDA through automobile clubs, used vehicle publications, or Government Ministries. Consumers are also welcome to contact the UCDA directly, without a referral.

How do I obtain mediation from the UCDA?



The UCDA encourages consumers to first try to resolve issues with the seller directly, as often a problem is the result of a miscommunication.
