As long as you are parked in an area where there are no restrictions against parking, you should be safe. However, law enforcement may need access to your car's license plate from time to time, if you are parked on a public street.

If there is a warranty the lemon law should cover it.

have you called and consulted with auto fraud attorneys regarding the issue?
I'll try to say this as nicely as possible but in regard to my attorney, I'm beyond fed up at this point. 1. I've never even talked to the attorney himself I have to speak to the assistant who has horrible communication skills. She does'nt return my calls, voicemails or emails... Read more »

You have quite a few issues here in your post. There are quite a few legal issues as well that relate. The biggest issue right now is there's a recent case in California that says used cars are no longer covered by the lemon law. A good lemon law attorney can probably find a way around that...

Anything else you should know? The law is rarely black and white and even when it is, some lawyer or some judge figures out a way to add a new shade of grey. We have an adversarial system of justice and that keeps both sides employed. Both sides argue and then typically, if they cannot settle... Read more »

The contract was already signed, we were able to have the warranty removed, but not the paint protection and gps theft protection as they said they are required when buying new vehicles from their dealership.

You have asked a good question which should serve as a warning to all consumers: Read the contract before you sign it.
I think I can guarantee that if you had complained before you signed, those add-ons would have been removed. The dealer's explanation is simply bs to lull people into... Read more »
I just purchased a brand new 2022 RV from a dealership. We purchased it about 2 hours away from our home. When we got it home that same day of purchase, the slide out was malfunctioning.

you cousin needs to call and consult with an attorney than handles dealership fraud cases. these cases are very fact and document specific and until an attorney does a full review, it will be very difficult to give your cousin any legal advice.

Like most attorney responses...it depends. The fact pattern suggests your friend had the vehicle inspected by "mechanic of his choice." This implies that your friend's mechanic inspected the vehicle and found no issues. Or it could imply that your friend did not have the vehicle... Read more »

I think a lot of lemon law attorneys would consider taking this case.
To me, your life is much simpler if you SELL the vehicle now, since it is likely worth
as much or more than what you paid for it and then just buy a different one.
Either way, I hope it works out for you.
I bought a used truck from a used car dealership that offered a 30 day warranty. After 6 days I sent it back to the dealership to get the sunroof fixed. It wouldn't open. The car is now approaching the 30 day warranty mark while in the dealers possession. Since I've only had possession of... Read more »

There is a provision in the CA lemon law that provides that the number of days the vehicle is in the shop extends the warranty by that number of days. AND if the issue is not fixed, the warranty remains in place on that issue until it is.

It should be traceable IF anybody filed a DMV SR-1 report. Otherwise, I doubt there is any way to know.

Sorry for your issues.
Lemon law is warranty law.
This seller likely did not give you a warranty, so, no lemon law claim. Sounds like you were lied to and you think you can prove this. That would be fraud. For a fraud claim, your reliance on his lies must be... Read more »
My off road vehicle was allegedly used off the business property to get pictures taken. The vehicle was taken out of the property without permission and an employee of the business rolled it and flipped it. The vehicle was initially taken with no prior damages.
answered on Aug 5, 2021
Sounds like you have a question. I'll guess it is, what can you do here?
You can make a demand of the dealer to put you back where you would
have been had this not happened. Dealer will likely reject. You will then
likely have to sue dealer in small claims court. Good luck with it!
back. I have not heard from them about the buy back but they want file suit for Chrysler contacting me in violation of cease and desist order and told me not to respond to Chrysler. Are they dragging it out to bill more fees and should go ahead and contact Chrysler myself?
answered on Jul 30, 2021
So, who knows what they are thinking other than them?
It is not clear to me that THEY contact FCA for you or if you
contacted FCA on your own first and then FCA is responding
to your contact or to their's? That could make a difference.

if you purchased the vehicle with a warranty the dealership should be given the opportunity to fix the issues. If you purchased it as is but it was sold with issues that needed to be disclosed, you can sue them in small claims. Small claims is appropriate for anything under $10,000. Lawyers are... Read more »
