My wife bought a salvaged car at a local dealership. The dealer told her that the car had been in a small accident after I mentioned while viewing that the car had been repaired. I even showed where the lines didn't meet correctly on the front fender and front. After going to the DMV, she was told that the vehicle was salvaged and needed to go thru additional steps for registration. We are not sure about the safety of the car and was wondering are there any legal ramifications concerning the sale of the salvage vehicle?
This was my original question from July 25, 2018.
I explained to my wife about your response and warned her against keeping the car. Of course, what wife listens to her husband. Since this time, we have run into many road blocks while trying to get the title. Just yesterday, the Check Engine light came on. I have been waiting on this to happen. I'm thinking about worse-case scenario. My new question is: Is the time limit or statute of limitations on this type of situation?
Take you purchase and financing documents to a consumer attorney immediately. Have the car inspected immediately. And notify the seller in writing of the problems. It should not cost you anything to consult an attorney as there are provisions for the award of fees against the defendant. (At least that is our practice.)
