dealor told me he took it to a mechanic before purchasing. think he lied. Waited over 30 days to find out the problem and that its not covered by my warranty. He did supply me with a loaner car after 2 weeks of not having a vehicle but i told him when it first broke down i didnt want it but he said i had to get it fixed. Any legal way to get out of the contract? my mother in law co signed.
You need to consult with an attorney in your location who practices Consumer Law. You have a number of possible options available to you. An attorney would need to see all the paperwork involving your purchase of the vehicle.
Odds are that you are probably legally right and the dealer is wrong. If a dealer makes a representation to you that you rely upon in making a purchase decision, and the representation is false, and you end up being damaged (such as having a broken down vehicle that you now have to pay to repair), then that may be fraud or a breach of oral warranty or a violation of the Ohio Udap law (which makes it illegal for a merchant to do anything that is unfair or deceptive to a consumer) or a violation of the Ohio Motor Vehicle Sales Rule (which makes it illegal for a car dealer to mislead or deceive a consumer in any one of more than a dozen ways). To know for sure, a car sales fraud lawyer needs to go over your whole situation and read through all your sales papers, including the warranty and any repair documents or inspection documents too. Can you cancel the sale? Maybe, but that depends on the severity of the vehicle problems and if you act quickly after learning your legal rights. If less than $3,000 is at stake you may file a claim in your local small claims court. If more than that, you ought to talk to or see a car sales fraud lawyer. Car dealers often violate the law in their sales paperwork, even if the customer is happy with the vehicle, and that can create legal rights you don't know about too. But act quickly because for every legal right you have, there is only a limited amount of time to actually file a lawsuit in court or your rights expire (it's called the statute of limitations), so don't waste your time getting to a Lemon Law attorney and finding out what your rights are.
