Dealer fraud charges for falsified odometer reading on titles

California consumers may be naturally wary of used car dealers because of the way TV and movies often portray them as dishonest and untrustworthy. Most dealers of previously owned vehicles run honest businesses and strive to win customer loyalty through service and integrity. However, it seems like there are still those car sellers who attempt to take the easy way by using dealer fraud to earn their money.

Car dealers balk at lemon law repairs

California car owners may quickly reach their frustration levels when repeated repairs bring them back to the dealer. What adds to their frustration is often the seeming indifference of the dealer. In fact, the more frequently a car owner returns to the dealer for repairs, the less enthusiastic the dealer may be about trying to find the source of the problem. The reason for this may be found in the wording of the Lemon Law.

For many in California, owning a motorhome is like a dream come true. The freedom to travel without worry about finding expensive accommodations is worth the cost of purchasing and maintaining such a vehicle. However, recent reports show that some motor homes may have a deadly auto defect and that consumers are not getting the whole truth about it.

Common forms of dealer fraud

Buying a used car is always a risk, and California consumers often feel vulnerable when negotiating with dealers. Often, if a car has a defect, the dealer was unaware, and he or she will do whatever possible to correct the situation. However, when car buyers faces dealer fraud, they may be uncertain where to turn for help or how to seek a satisfactory resolution.

Dealers selling flood damaged cars as though they are good as new

You are looking for a quality used car. You head to the dealer and test drive cars. You find a car that meets all your specifications and appears to have been well cared for. The dealer points out that it doesn't have too many miles. What a steal!

Lemon law protects new car owners

Car owners typically trust that the purchase of a new car means the end of troubles they may have had with an old car. A new car comes with a high price tag, and someone making monthly payments is not likely to want to deal with regular repair bills. Unfortunately, consumers who purchase defective vehicles often do end up returning to the dealer for frequent repairs. While California's lemon law protect people in these circumstances, one woman is still fighting for her rights.
