It is legal to sell in most states. It is NOT legal to fail to disclose in most states.

I agree with Scott. There is no law against selling vehicles with salvage title, but in most states, the seller has a duty to disclose to the buyer that the vehicle has a salvage title. If the dealership will not refund your money, then you should contact an attorney.

This response does not create an attorney-client relationship.
