Putting The Brakes On Car Salesman Fraud
If you were the victim of deceptive advertising, negotiation, pricing or financing practices, you may have a claim for auto fraud. At Flesner Wentzel, we help clients bring fraud claims that force auto dealers to compensate them for the financial damages caused by illegal and fraudulent practices.
After deceitful car sales practices are exposed, many consumers feel as though they were “taken to the cleaners” and are embarrassed for being tricked into the purchase. You are not alone. Every day, innocent consumers are taken advantage of by dishonest and unscrupulous car dealers.
Commonly used deceptive and illegal tactics include:
- Bait and switch advertising
- Inflating vehicle prices
- Failure to disclose information about a vehicle
- Mileage or odometer rollbacks
- Hidden “add-on” costs
- Undervaluing trade-ins
- Failure to transfer car title or satisfy a lien
Car salesmen are also commonly deceptive when setting up financing. Many consumers purchase their cars only to find out that dealer-arranged financing has fallen through, or interest rates are much higher than what was agreed upon.
At Flesner Wentzel, we are aggressive litigators and tough negotiators. When car salesmen make false or misleading statements, or use unscrupulous sales tactics, we hold them liable for their wrongful acts.
St. Louis Lemon Law Attorneys
If your new car has serious mechanical problems or defects, and you are constantly bringing your car in to repair problem after problem, you may have the right to a refund or a new vehicle under Missouri’s lemon laws.
Lemon laws cover a wide range of issues, including:
- Ignored warranties
- Manufacturing defects
- Design defects
At Flesner Wentzel, we help individuals prove their automobile is a “lemon” and pursue compensation under the state’s lemon laws. Many car dealers will agree to exchange or replace your “lemon” with a working car. However, if car dealers refuse, we will initiate legal action that forces them to provide you with a refund or a new automobile.
