    William’s Answer

    Be very careful. If the language of the release is broad enough to cover PI claims, you could end up waiving them.

  • I have a VW diesel & am looking for an attorney to file for the lemon law.

    I have a 2011 Jetta & have been getting a lot of letters from lawyers about this, but would rather research it on my won. The letters are saying that I qualify for the lemon law, which seems reasonable, and that VW would be responsible for the le...

    William’s Answer

    Depending on the condition of your vehicle, you may have a good case. If I were you, I'd call a consumer fraud / lemon attorney to review your case. If you do call one of the attorneys that sent you a letter make sure you understand how you will be involved in the litigation (e.g., class action vs individual suit) as that may have significant ramifications. However you proceed, I wish you the best of luck!

  • Consumer fraud attorney.

    I bought a used car and two days later I removed the dash cover to find the dash is broken in three places. The dealer put a new cover on the dash to cover it up and now refuse to make the repair.

    William’s Answer

    You should run a vehicle history report on the car to see its true history. On the "repair" it sounds like it was just a superficial band-aid that didn't really fix the problem. You should call a consumer protection attorney who deals with car dealers regularly to look at your case and review your transaction documents. Most will do so for no fee. Sorry you're dealing with this and I wish you the best of luck !

  • Problem with car dealership

    I purchased a car in April from Carhop Dealership said they paid the fees, registration expired, got pulled over by police for excited reg. informed them in person, and over the phone. But still no call back or reply to fix the problem. How can I ...

    William’s Answer

    You should speak to a consumer fraud attorney who deals with car dealers on a regular basis. The problem with the fees dies not sound normal and the automobile dealership should take care of it. You should also run a vehicle history report to see if there are any other working problems with the vehicle you purchase that you were not aware of. At this point, however, I strongly recommend you speak with a consumer protection attorney. Most will review your file and sales documents and provide you with an initial consultation to let you know where you stand at no charge. However you proceed, I wish you the best of luck.

  • A car dealership had a 21991 price on the windshield. When i went to buy they said the truck was really 31991.

    They would not honor the window price. They were actually very belligerent. This was a used GMC at a GMC dealer. Do i have any recourse?

    William’s Answer

    If you can prove the window sticker was in fact lower than what they were willing to sell you the car for, you may have a case for false advertising (amongst other things). Did you end up purchasing this car? Did you see it advertised elsewhere for the lower price that they would not honor? These are questions you should discuss with the consumer protection attorney who deals with automobile dealerships on a regular basis. Most attorneys practicing in this area will provide you with a free initial consultation to let you know where you stand. However you proceed, I wish you the best of luck.

  • About the VW emission Fraud scandal.

    I own 2013 Jetta TDI,I purchased it directly from the dealer few years ago at this time I'm very concern about its value. I already contacted VW about my concern because basically my car at this time is worthless + the time I have to wait until th...

    William’s Answer

    It is impossible to know whether your case would settle at all, let alone "how long" it would take to settle. It is also not possible to guarantee any amount you would recover as a settlement or judgment. You should contact a lemon law attorney/consumer fraud attorney to take a look at your transaction and let you know where you stand. Most will provide an initial consultation to facilitate this at no charge to you. Best of luck.

  • Dealer sold me a car that caught fire after 5 weeks. What recourse do I have to demand a refund of my $2000 deposit?

    2002 Nissan Altima. Had it 5 weeks then it caught fire on 405. I narrowly escaped but I now have nightmares about the traumatic event. I want my $2000 deposit returned to me. The finance company was paid off by my insurance but now I have no mone...

    William’s Answer

    You might have a claim against the dealership, but you will need to determine what the cause of the vehicle fire was. Assuming it was caused by a condition that was existing in the vehicle prior to your purchase, and that condition was not disclosed, you may have a very good claim against the dealership. You may also have some breach of warranty claims as well. You should contact a consumer fraud/lemon law attorney to review your transaction paperwork and any repair orders you have. Most attorneys practicing in this area will provide you with a free initial consultation to review your case and let you know where you stand. However you proceed, I wish you the very best of luck and i'm glad you were able to make it out of the accident in a safe manner.

  • Can I sue dealership for fraud & lemon law?

    Bought a 2010 car less than a yearl ago signed a extended warranty and contract left was called back 3 days later and was told I had to sign another contract because that one didn't go through so they were going to resubmit it , they took off porf...

    William’s Answer

    Sorry to hear this is happening to you. In order to answer your question, a consumer fraud attorney would need to look at your paperwork from the transaction and speak to you personally. If you were told the vehicle came with an extended warranty, and that you were purchasing that with the second transaction, but the transaction paperwork says something different, you may have a claim. The difficulty, of course, will be that the paperwork you signed contradicts what the dealership told you. Get in touch with a consumer fraud attorney Who has experience dealing with car dealerships. Most attorneys practicing in that area will provide you with a free initial consultation to review your documents and let you know where you stand. However you proceed, I wish you the best of luck.
