Purchased a used vehicle 3 weeks ago. I have documents stating the car receives the dealer 3 mo 3000mi warranty. When I ask about a noise, they state it is not under warranty and they will not cover the cost. The vehicle does not qualify for there warranty although I have documents saying I receive the warranty regardless of the fact. Am I in the right to feel dooped? Part of the reason i bought the car is because it has a warranty.
Is Pope catholic? Does Earth revolve around the Sun? Of course you are right to feel cheated! Moreover, you should sue for breach of warranty, because refusal to perform warranty repairs is a breach. Consult a knowledgeable consumer protection lawyer in your area (hint hint) and file!
You might want to file a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General Consumer Fraud division if you can't afford an attorney
The dealer's refusal to repair is likely a beach of written warranty under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Many lemon law firms, like mine, will do a free case review of your records to determine if you qualify for relief. If you qualify, federal and/or state laws should allow you to retain an attorney who does not charge you for their time, but rather, seeks recovery of their fees from the dealer. Best of luck to you!
