Missouri Car Dealership Owner, victim of consumer fraud himself, says leave the MMPA alone.
Eric Stronsnider, of O’Fallon, is the owner of a car dealership in St. Peters, MO. Eric as a Missouri consumer, is currently in litigation against a Marina in Camden County. Eric purchased a boat at the Marina, and on the same day of purchase the engine went out in the boat. The salesman inadvertently sent him a service invoice, which was dated prior to the sale and proves the marina knew about the engine problem before it closed the sale.
Eric understands that SB 832 would make it harder for people to sue him or his dealership, but he has stated that it’s more important to be able to hold those accountable who commit fraud against consumers in Missouri.
Eric’s own case again the marina would not have been possible if SB 832 were the law.
