You aren't venting to the wrong person. I am happy to listen.
Here are some comments to your second post?
QUESTION: The incorrect date of sale; does that matter at all?
DISCUSSION: Probably not; an incorrect date is usually di minimis (in other words, an error but not one that is legally significant).
QUESTION: Aren't these dealers responsible for anything?
DISCUSSION: Only for what is set forth by statutes/laws, and their contract.
QUESTION: I actually own a small retail business, and I can tell you, I'm held to much higher standards than car dealers apparently are. It's no wonder they put shameless pressure on like they do; there's no accountability. Once they get you to sign, their job is done except for collecting the fat commission. No integrity required. I sell flowers, and stand behind a 7-day guarantee. Ironic that the public is more protected in spending $20 for flowers (wilting not allowed, as "acts of God" excuse accountability only for the big money insurance industry), than $30,000.00 for such a major purchase as a vehicle.
DISCUSSION: Thank you for being ethical in your business dealings. Unfortunately, ethics and the law are not always the same. I wish they were.
FACTS: I can't afford an attorney. Contrary to what most people may think, owning a business doesn't necessarily mean you have more money than most, rather, in my case, it means I owe more money than most. So I doubt if the Attorney General could help me because I slip through the cracks.
DISCUSSION: If the Attorney General has jurisdiction (the authority to investigate the complaint), they will do so regardless of your resources, or lack of resources. The Attorney General is acting on behalf of all of the people of Illinois, not just you.
FACTS: Work too hard to be eligible for any government hand-outs, which isn't my goal anyway, but don't make enough to afford the "extras" like an attorney, when I'm ripped off.
DISCUSSION: You can always represent yourself in Court.
CONCLUSION: I now own a $30,000.00 vehicle that I have to keep in out of the rain. I will file a complaint with the Attorney General's Office, for what it's worth. Thanks for the advice and the link. I apologize for venting to the wrong person. You tried to help me, and I appreciate that.
DISCUSSION: I hope you resolve this favorably. Good luck.
