Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2015 -- Salesman at the car dealership often try to make buyers believe they got a deal, but in reality used cars often have problems that buyers don't know about. Many used car dealers sell cars with frame damage and defective engines. Laws in California are designed to protect innocent consumers and car buyers who think they are getting a good deal when they are actually being sold a car that was in a prior accident, or a vehicle that is defective, or a contract for more than the advertised price. Auto fraud attorneys are available at the Consumer Action Law Group to help victims of car scams. Auto fraud lawyers help buyers get their money back and cancel illegal contracts at no cost to the buyer.
In California, a lawsuit can be filed for many reasons. Here are the issues that an auto fraud attorney researches: contract does not accurately reflect the amount of down payments, increase in monthly payments, the sales price is higher than the advertised price, a salvaged title, prior accidents, prior rental, existing defects, mechanical problems, change in financing and terms of the loan.
In many cases, auto fraud lawyers file lawsuits and get the client money's back long after the fraud occurred. Experienced auto fraud attorneys can help buyers get out of contracts, replace, repurchase, or even return their vehicles to get their money back.
A good car fraud lawyer can easily identify and help consumers by filing a lawsuit when it is the best option. A lot of time and effort goes into investigating cases for clients, ensuring they get back the money they deserve.
These are some of the issues that make a case strong:
- Not disclosing prior engine defects, major repairs, prior accidents, prior frame damage, prior rental use
- Selling the vehicle for more than advertised price
- Collecting deferred down payments
- Increasing the amount of the down payment from the amount agreed upon
- Changing the sale price or monthly payments that were agreed upon
- Failing to disclose price of a trade in vehicle in the contract
- Adding options without disclosing to the buyers
- Up charging for accessories that weren't needed and were labeled as "required"
- Changing the amount of a monthly payment or the interest rate
