I bought a 2013 Ford Explorer from Corning Ford about a year and a half ago. Yesterday I tried to trade it in and found out it was in an accident and had structural damage.
I bought it with 34,000 miles on it and it was still under warranty.
I called the dealership and they told me that they don't have to disclose that information.
See what you can do with the dealership and then contact a lemon law lawyer, if you need to get help.
They lied at time of sale (by not disclosing) and they lied again when you called, they DO have to disclose that type of information. You MUST WRITE to them immediately and spell ALL of this out, including their original lie and their current one. Ask them to "do the right thing" and to make it up to you and to stop doing this to other people. Here is a solid YouTube channel on Lemon Law and Auto Fraud issues. You should find a few good videos there about the importance of writings and inspecting a car prior to buying it.
Watch them and then get in touch with a lemon law attorney for more guidance.
