Were You Sold A Vehicle Over The Advertised Price By An Auto Dealer?

Have you ever left a car dealership with a sinking feeling that you may have been misled? Whether you purchased a new or used vehicle, auto dealers must adhere to the advertised price when selling cars. If your car purchase was over the advertising price, feeling cheated is an understatement. You need a lawyer who won’t just sympathize but will fight relentlessly for your rights.

Michael Klitzke and his experienced legal team help clients in all of California obtain justice for unfair vehicle sales and in cases of auto fraud. When it comes to results, Auto Law Firm, PC‘s track record speaks volumes. Garnering the Best of the Bar award for securing one of the top 100 verdicts in California in 2022 is no small feat – especially when that verdict boasts a six-figure sum. It’s not just about the numbers; it’s about justice for those wronged.

Understanding What Is Included In An Advertised Price

Auto dealers are required to sell vehicles at or below the advertised price. The advertised price could be on the dealer’s website, an advertisement on a third-party website like cargurus.com, or on the vehicle itself.

Starting in 2020, dealers have been increasingly forcing consumers to purchase additional products like theft deterrent devices, appearance protection, service and maintenance contracts, GAP and extended warranties. Many dealers have boldly told customers these additional products are required so that the dealership can make a higher profit.

Nothing prevents a dealer from refusing to sell a vehicle without specified additional items. However, if the dealer requires certain items to be purchased with the vehicle, then those items need to be included in the advertised price. If the dealer says an optional product is required to obtain financing, that is an illegal finance charge. If you were sold a vehicle for more than the advertised price, the auto fraud team at Auto Law Firm, PC, can help get all of your money back.
