Rental history is one of the few things a California dealer is required to “clearly” disclose before selling a vehicle. The fact that a vehicle was used as a rental is very important.
Rentals are driven by a lot of different, some of whom intentionally abuse the vehicle. Rental car companies tend to do basic maintenance like oil changes, but avoid having more significant repair work done because any time spent on repairs is time the vehicle is not available as a rental. Rental car companies know their vehicles get beaten up which is one reason the companies only hold on to a vehicle for 1-2 years.
If you purchased a vehicle and later found the vehicle had been used as a rental, Auto Law can help get your money back.
