You Can Sue a Dealer for Selling You a Bad Car

You can sue a dealership for selling you a bad car if they did not properly disclose any known issues with the vehicle. For example, if a car dealer has a vehicle that they know was previously involved in an accident, they must tell the buyer about the accident prior to the sale.

This same rule applies for frame damage, odometer roll backs, and almost anything that the dealer would advertise about the car. We often receive calls from people who have recently purchased used vehicles from a dealership that they trusted, only to have the car break down on them within weeks or months of the purchase. Often times, the only way to get the dealer to repair the vehicle or arrange for the car to be returned for a full refund is by having an auto fraud attorney sue the dealership.

A bad car can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs, days of missed work, and require you to rent a vehicle when yours car is in the shop. Rather than spend hours at the dealership arguing with the manager, you can call our auto fraud attorneys to discuss your legal rights and options in just minutes.

Used Vehicle Should Not Mean Bad Vehicle

Used cars are often more reliable, and a better investment considering the how vehicles depreciate in value so quickly. Just because you didn’t buy a brand new vehicle off the assembly line doesn’t mean you should be stuck driving a bad car. It is more than reasonable to expect that your car has been inspected by the dealer, and that the car would not break down due to transmission or engine issues shortly after driving off the lot.

Our auto fraud attorneys have helped clients negotiate with their dealer to return the bad car and get back their down payment. Our goal for most client cases is to undo the deal for the vehicle and put the money back in your pocket where it belongs.
