Consumer buys truck, finds out frame has extensive rust, shouldn’t be driven, dealer says no refund.
A used car dealer failed to disclose frame damage on a used pickup truck. The truck’s frame was so severely rusted it wasn’t even safe to put it on a car lift let alone drive. Despite knowingly selling a dangerous truck without a safety inspection the used car dealer refused to allow the consumer to return the truck for a refund.
The case quickly settled after a consumer attorney filed a Missouri Merchandising Practices Act lawsuit.
This case would not be possible if SB5 becomes law.
