    My daughter gets alerts on her phone for cars. She got an alert for a car that was listed as $279.00. She contacted the car dealer asking if that was the price or a mistake. A very short time later, the car was listed as "sold" and has subsequently been put back up at $27,900.00.

    The dealer has not returned my daughter's inquiry. I thought car dealers had to honour the advertised prices under Australian Consumer Law? There may be a caveat to this that if the price is so low as to obviously be a typo, I am not sure.

    I was just wondering what the legislation is.

    Thanks for any help in this matter.
