AUTO DEALER FRAUD

If you bought a car and didn't get the deal you thought you were getting, we can help.

Buying a car is a major undertaking.  With all the special language, financial disclosures and other paperwork, it can be hard to tell if you are getting a good deal.  Many people don't realize that they have been taken advantage of until well after they've left the dealership.   If this happens to you, you may want to return the car and get your money back, or you may want a partial refund.  In either case, we can help you.

Auto Dealer Scams

There are many ways that some car dealers take advantage of consumers-- from sneaking in extra charges, to selling a car in poor condition.  When you visit a dealership, make sure to get a copy of every piece of paper that you are asked to sign, and be sure to read each document carefully.  Try to avoid feeling pressured to close the deal fast.  If the dealer makes you any promises about the transaction, make sure that it is reflected in writing.  If the dealer refuses to write down the promise, it may be a red flag.

Here are some of the scams that we see often in car purchase transactions:

  • Certified Pre-Owned ("CPO") Cars with Accident Damage or Defects

  • Contract Packing (sneaking in extra charges like GAP insurance).

  • Yo-Yo Sales (trying to take the car back after it has been sold to you)

  • Breach of Express Warranty.(refusing or failing to repair problems with the car that are covered under warranty).

  • Breach of Implied Warranty

  • Refusing to return deposits after a deal falls through.

  • Altering CarFax or vehicle history reports to hide prior accident damage.
