Kathryn Hilbush's answer
Your question went out to the family law attorneys. You should discuss this with a personal injury attorney. My thoughts are that, unless you actually suffered damages, there are no grounds for a lawsuit, but, as I said, you should check with a personal injury attorney.

Q: Can a dealership sell a used car in Missouri with faulty airbags without disclosing it?

Answered on Apr 3, 2018
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer
The challenge you might face is proving that the dealership knew of the problem and made a misrepresentation to you. If you can prove this, you might have a decent claim under Missouri's consumer fraud statute, the Merchandising Practices Act. Contact a local attorney to discuss.

Possible but that is lengthy. Some states have parts laws (check out NPR program on just your issue). Try online. There are some people who do repairs who have figured these out. Cheaper for you to pay them to repair than for you to file a lawsuit and chase them.

This sounds dumb but.......if he owned a house look up his ownership--may have had a wife. Try facebook---a surprising amount of time that works. Try Intelius.

You are required to file a report within 30-60 days under most policies. If it's not over that file one. Second, ask DMV to have the guy's license & tags suspended. If he has a policy that should do it. Last but not least contact a member of the Md. Assn for Justice-they give free consults.
