Dealer sells Single Mom previously wrecked vehicle with frame damage, attorney discovers she’s not the only victim.
A used car dealer failed to disclose three prior accidents and major frame damage in selling a dangerous car to a single mother. The car was so dangerous that an expert told her the car was unsafe and she should not drive the car. The Missouri Department of Revenue, the state agency that “regulates” used car dealers won’t help consumers who are cheated by used car dealers. The mother was stuck was a vehicle that could not be driven and dealer who refused to correct the situation.
The mother hired a Missouri Consumer Attorney filed a Missouri Merchandising Practices Act lawsuit. The case quickly settled when it was discovered that the used car dealer had sold many unsafe cars over the years.
Her claims would not be possible if SB5 becomes law.
