How to Sue a Car Dealership Near Me in Columbia, MD

Auto dealers in Columbia are required under the law to be truthful in disclosing the condition of the cars they sell. Some, however, are dishonest; they may attempt to hide flooded or seriously damaged vehicles. Customers may only learn of the fraud after they discover that the car they believed was new is actually defective. In these cases, the dealer often knew all along that they were passing off a damaged vehicle to a customer who was deliberately kept unaware of the real condition of the car.

Another form of auto dealer fraud occurs when a dealership engages in deception or lying in an attempt to get the customer to sign on the dotted line. They may promise advanced options that are never included or additional packages that are not installed. In some cases, these can include valuable safety features, and the customer may not find out about the fraud until they later go in for service. If a car dealership in Columbia, Clarksville, Ellicott City, North Laurel or Woodmark cheated you, you may have legal recourse. Contact Whitney, LLP, to find out more about pursuing a claim for auto dealership fraud.

Columbia, MD, Lawyer Near Me for Auto Misrepresentation Claims

You may be told that you are buying a new car, only to find out that you are actually driving a returned vehicle. In some cases, that vehicle was brought back to the dealer from a prior purchaser because of defects or a deceptive payment structure. The mileage on the odometer may be explained away as a test drive or dealership use only. Used cars can be a great buy, but fraudulent dealers may try to charge new-car prices far above their value. As a result of auto fraud and dealer overcharging, consumers may lose out on thousands of dollars.

In other cases, the payment structure itself is fraudulent. Auto buyers may be given a different interest rate, or a higher monthly payment, than the actual charges they agreed to, or find themselves receiving bills for costly fees. “The dealer was forging my signature!” is what we have heard from car buyers in Maryland on multiple cases.

These buyers reviewed their contracts only to discover that their forged initials and signatures were falsely added on the purchase contract or loan details. If you find out that a dealership used forged initials or discover “They forged my signature!” the lawyers at Whitney, LLP may help you with suing a car dealership for compensation.
