Indianapolis Auto Dealership Litigation Services
Auto dealerships can face a variety of lawsuits depending on the accusations against them. For instance, if a customer feels that they were misled or wrongfully sold a car, they may file a lawsuit against the dealership. Additionally, if a customer felt the dealership failed to adhere to consumer protection laws, failed to disclose important information, or engaged in discriminatory practices they may find themselves a party to a lawsuit.
Dealerships face a few common types of allegations, such as the following:
- Fraud: Auto dealerships may be found liable for fraud if they misrepresent or omit important facts when selling a car.
- Breach of Warranty: Many auto manufacturers issue warranties on the vehicles they sell. If an auto dealership fails to honor these warranties, it can lead to legal action against them.
- Improper Financing: Auto dealerships are required to provide accurate and fair financing agreements for customers. If a dealership charges an excessive interest rate or fails to disclose important terms of an agreement, it may be liable for legal action.
- Unfair Business Practices: Auto dealerships must operate in a fair and transparent manner. Unfair business practices may include deceptive pricing, failure to disclose important information, or other illegal activities.
- Lemon Laws: Most states have laws that protect consumers who purchase defective cars. If an auto dealership fails to live up to these laws, legal action can be taken against them.
- Breach of Contract: If a dealership fails to follow the terms of a legally binding contract with a customer, they may be held liable for breach of contract. This includes failing to do any repairs or replacements according to the contract.
- Discrimination: Auto dealerships are prohibited from discriminating against customers based on race, gender, religion, age, or disability. If a dealership is found to be engaging in discriminatory practices, legal action may be taken against them.
Defending Clients Against ‘Yo-Yo’ Sale Claims
Bad actors in the auto sales industry may engage in yo-yo sales. These are sales dealerships make to consumers with poor credit without first securing financing for the purchase from a third-party. Of course, bad actors don’t fully disclose how financing the auto sale works, so consumers can be left confused when they’re later told they need to pay more for their vehicle than initially agreed or return it.
