Asked in Consumer Law and Contracts for Missouri

Q: Can I get out of an agreement through Buy Here Pay Here lot?

We recently bought a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country from Carmart August 31st. It has been nothing but problems. They knew our situation as we have a disabled father (in wheelchair) and we needed something reliable that he could get into & would fit his wheelchair. We paid 1500.00 down and 150 every 2 weeks with 2 balloon payments and total payoff after tax, service contract, 16.5% interest, administrative fee, and debt cancellation agreement is 10,451.95. They have replaced the radiator, a/c condenser, oil pan gasket, transmission gasket, another part causing transmission leak, 2 tires (that never should have passed inspection - twice due to wrong size being placed on vehicle), and computer problems. They were supposed to find us another vehicle yet now state they can't & we have to keep the van (NO) or take something off their lot that won't work for us. I just want my money back & I'll go somewhere else.

A: You need to speak to an attorney quickly. They can best determine to what relief you may be entitled under the law. You may ask your attorney about Missouri's Lemon Law, Merchandising Practices Act, and other opportunities for relief available to you. But there's no easy yes-or-no answer to your question, because success is dependent upon the strength of your attorney.
