Forum Rules Policy

So here’s the rules, we need rules to help the place running smoothly and protect our broad church of users. So here are a few key pointers…

We have an amazing forum with a huge wealth of helpful information. Yet remember it’s open to all, and sometimes messages are posted that are misleading or downright wrong. Most users are helpful but there are always a few bad apples. Don’t rely on information being accurate or complete. If you do, it’s at your own risk. Please do your own research before acting.

We can actually be liable for what you post. When you post something, not only are you liable for what you say, but we can become liable too as the host. So it’s not a case of posting what you like, and we can delete posts if needed. Of course, our aim is to ensure legitimate information about car buying experiences or fighting for consumer rights.

Posting is a privilege, not a right. This is a privately-owned site. Any inappropriate posts or any issues that take up a disproportionate amount of resources or make it a worse place to be will be stopped and removed at our discretion – with or without explanation. No one pays to use this site; when there are issues, we pay to resolve them. Sometimes we need to prioritise spending money on the site, other issues or better resources.

Please be nice to all Carbuco users. Remember, the prime aim is to help provide information and experiences. If you don’t like someone, their situation, their question or feel they’re intruding on ‘your board’ then please bite the bullet and think of the bigger issue.

The rules listed below may be changed or amended at any time. These guidelines are here to give you a legitimate expectation of how the forum runs, but they do not bind us.
