Macclenny, FL asked in Consumer Law for Florida

Q: Purchased a car from dealer with clean AutoCheck, 2 days later saw there was accident damage. Can I return the car?

I informed the dealership about the accident damage and they refused to pay to repair it. So USAA cancelled the loan check. After which, now they are offering to fix the damage, but I no longer want that vehicle. The GM is refusing to allow me to return the car and trying to force to buy another vehicle from them

A: I have handled many cases like this. This may be a classic case of auto fraud. Many dealers obtain an AutoCheck shortly after they purchase a car from an auction or customer with the hope that it does not show auto damage. However, they always inspect the vehicle and know of the damage. I suggest you tell the dealership that they must have known of the damage to the vehicle and that they were trying to pass it off as damage-free. If they do not give your money back for the return of the car, you will seek legal advice.

Hopefully, that will work.
