After selling her an unusable car, woman makes deal with dealer that they will “unwind” the deal, she makes good on her part, dealer fails to carry out its promises.

A woman, who resides in Missouri, bought a used car that turned out to have significant problems, rendering it unusable. She could reach an agreement to return the car to the dealer, who agreed to pay off the loan balance, return her down payment, and, rescind the sale to the Department of Revenue so that the sales tax she paid would be refunded to her. As agreed, the lady returned the car, but the dealer refused to do anything it had agreed to do, leaving her without a car, without money to buy a new one, and with damaged credit, through no fault of her own.

The woman hired a Missouri Consumer Attorney who filed a case using the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act.

If SB 5 were to be passed cases like hers would not be possible.
