Is there a guarantee period when buying a second hand car in Spain?

The Consumer Protection Law in Spain advises that buying a second hand car in Spain from a dealer or a showroom for a specific brand or make of vehicle, you should normally be offered a minimum term of a 1 year warranty.

If you buy a car privately, you are not protected by the Consumer Protection Law, but by the Codigo Civil. Basically, this means that the vehicle being sold must be the seller’s legal property and that it is the mandate of the seller to take care of any hidden defects at the time of sale. 

The seller will be obliged to pay for and/or repair any hidden defects that prevent the vehicle being used or operated as it should. The seller would not be responsible for obvious issues with the vehicle that may have been pointed out as part of the sale. 

The guarantee/warranty period for private sales is 6 months, according to the OCU (Spanish consumer organisation) However, we believe this can be modified at the point of sale by requesting either a sales contract with a written or verbal warranty/guarantee, or one which specifies that the buyer is willing to buy the vehicle as seen. Often the private sellers do not want to offer this warranty/guarantee, as they do not want to be responsible for any defects that the vehicle may encounter over the next 6 months.
