    Did you purchase the vehicle from a private individual or a car dealership? The Federal Odometer Law, 49 USC 32701, imposes both civil and criminal liability on a motor vehicle seller for its violation. Civil liability under the Act requires an intent to defraud. Additionally, every state has its own Odometer Act, and some only require a reckless disregard for facts indicating odometer inaccuracy to impose liability. Odometer fraud is a serious thing and carries strict penalties for its...

    1 lawyer answer

    The Ohio lemon law will not apply to your grandson’s car because he did not purchase it new. Did he purchase the vehicle with a warranty? If so, he needs to give the dealer a reasonable number of repair attempts or a reasonable amount of time to make repairs before the warranty is breached. He may also have a claim for breach of implied warranty of merchantability if he purchased the vehicle with a warranty, because a vehicle that needs a new transmission is not “fit to drive”. If he...

    It is not completely clear, but it sounds like you had some concerns about the vehicle before you purchased it, you asked them to check it out, and they told you nothing was wrong. If so, then you would likely have a case under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act and Ohio Motor Vehicle Sales Rule, as well as a claim for fraud since it is likely that the cracked manifolds would have been obvious to the dealership. Did the vehicle come with any sort of warranty? If so, then the vehicle also...

  7. I bought a car from a dealership over 2 months ago and have no title and the now the car will not start. Can I get my money back

    If the title is still not in your name after 40 days, and you purchased the vehicle in Ohio, then you should be able to get your money back. In Ohio, a car dealer is required to deliver title to a motor vehicle to a consumer within 40 days of the sale of the vehicle to the consumer. And, where the car dealer fails to do so, the consumer has an unconditional right to rescind the transaction (i.e. make the dealer take the vehicle back and get their money back). However, most car dealers will...

    Some states require that car dealers and/or car manufacturers disclose to consumer purchasers a vehicle's "Lemon Law" buyback history. Some states also require that the title of the vehicle be branded as a "Lemon". I am not familiar with the requirements in Massachusetts. However, if you are going to lose money on the trade because of the vehicle's "Lemon Law" buyback history, then I suggest that you contact a Lemon Law attorney in Massachusetts. To find a consumer law attorney in your...

    I agree; additional information regarding the warranty is necessary for us to properly evaluate your question. It is also important to know when the repairs occurred, because if you do have any claims, there may be statute of limitations issues since the vehicle was purchased in 2007. A statute of limitations gives a deadline for a claim to be filed in Court. If the claim is not filed before the deadline, then you lose it forever. For that reason, you may want to contact a lemon law...

    I agree with Scott and Christina. If you want to take the vehicle back, then take a look at your sales documents. There will likely be a document called a "spot deliver" agreement, or something similar, that explains your rights and duties as a purchaser if the contract is not assigned within a certain period of time. Good luck, Beth Wells www.carsalesfraud.com www.burdgelaw.com
