Hello

Welcome to JA!

Washington law on a used car or truck purchases is as shown

Washington State Used Car Sales Laws

In March, 2010, Washington added extra protection for used car buyers. The buyer who knows the laws for used vehicle sales has the edge in getting a good deal.


State law RCW 62A.2-314 favors warranties in writing but verbal warranties made by the dealer can also be included if provable. Even an as is sale has an implied warranty of merchantability. Washington State's attorney general explains that "the dealer promises the used car will be fit for ordinary driving purposes, reasonably safe, without major defects and of the average quality of similar cars available for sale in the same price range."

 

Financing

  • If financing by the dealer is involved, the contract must be finalized within four working days. If the dealer cannot find financing according to the terms of the contract, he must inform the buyer the deal has fallen through. He must refund the deposit to the buyer, plus title and keys on the trade-in, if any. If the trade-in was already sold, the buyer receives the full cash value of the sale price or the price listed on the contract, whichever is higher.

  • Here is the attorney generals office they would be happy to help you

    Dont let them mess with you the truck should be under warranty if it broke down with in 30 days from the sale

    If they dont want to give the 10 g back give the attorney General's office a call they will get the state involved and it wont cost you any thing

     

    Let me know how it goes
