What options do I have in California when I purchased a vehicle at a dealership and I was not informed the car had salvaged title? It was not disclosed to me prior to the sale, nor was it displayed on the vehicle anywhere? I had no idea until I tried to get insurance on it.
You're going to have to act from this moment forward, as if you are in a lawsuit. You will need to marshal all of your evidence. You will need to only communicate in WRITING going forward. You will need to figure out how to PROVE you were not told as they will say you were. Here is a solid...Read more »
It was a government vehicle he bought at auction and I believe he was supposed to register it in his name first before he sold it to me.but he didn't and I paid him $200 to register and give me my license plates but he still hasn't done it it's been 5 months.
This can get quite expensive for the bad guy here. A lawsuit re: failure to deliver title, can be a problem for the dealer. START by contacting the DMV investigations department and by reaching out to a consumer protection attorney.
A friend, who is naïve and mentally-challenged received an auto loan with a principal amount of $3,900 at an interest rate of 47.99% with equally horrendous late charges. To date she has paid over $11,000 on the $3,900 and the lender is requiring $3,500 from her to pay it off. I want them to... Read more »
Tough call, but, while it's unsure if a car dealer is a licensed lender, it IS clear that one may not contract with someone who does not have "capacity" to contract, ie, 'mentally-challenged' and one can be hit hard with punitive damages for knowingly taking advantage of someone like this. She...Read more »
I purchased this car for $1500. The registration was pass due and it was almost $400. The engine light came on the time I went to drive it from my home. Ford says I need a whole engine. A important sensor is missing. That is not a overnight problem. I feel as though they sold me lemon.
we tried to buy her car on Saturday, but it wasn't her car yet since she never completed the title transfer from her late father to her before selling it to us. Sunday I find out, call DMV Mon. for advice and are told I need a bill of sale. Mechanical issue Monday, she stopped responding after I... Read more »
Sorry for your issues. NO ONE benefits from a "judgment" against them. This matter, at 3,500 or so, is in small claims court, which takes about 60 days start to finish. IF this seller refuses to "do the right thing" you should take her to small claims court, that judgment, when you (hopefully) win,...Read more »

I charged back with my credit provider and only got back 14000$ I am out about 5500$. I am not the only one who got... Read more »

But I am working for metal finishing companies over 30 years, this problem is a contamination of Aluminum hood with Iron before painting. My car is still under warranty ( less... Read more »
I recently got a car and was putting down $2,000 as down payment but the dealership forgot to charge me the down payment but instead charged me everything else for the car. We signed the contracts already and everything was a done deal. Do I need to go back and give them the money they forgot to... Read more »

We paid the $30thousand in full, when I sent letters to all our contacts regarding his death. They never contacted me nor did I even remember about it. It wasn’t until my daughter found the paperwork on it in the garage and asked me if I received a partial refund from the helicopter school. I am... Read more »
Probably. Hard to tell all relevant facts without knowing more, but, assuming a "legal" impound, which you are apparently admitting to, the only ways to avoid more charges are getting it out (the charges add up daily) asap OR allowing them to sell it asap without adding up more daily charges and...Read more »
The attorney general for Kansas City wouldn't do much with my situation and many others that are victims of this autopsy service company. I would have to look into the medical board for Kansas right. Im not sure how to make my question towards the the two gentleman that responded toy first question.
This is so very sad. I'm sorry for your loss. This does sound like a breach of contract and potentially a fraud. Definitely get in touch with an attorney for an in person sit down to review documents, facts and options.
