Consumer Protection Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Have you spoken to a local attorney yet?
Sorry, I got knocked offline
I think you have a viable case to do what is known as "sue for rescission of the contract".
What that means is each of you go back to the starting point.
In this case, they breached the contract by failing to deliver what you have requested.
You would be much better off if you hire a lawyer and let them handle all of it. It's been my experience that if someone tries to handle it themselves first and doesn't get it resolved, then the dealers set their feet in stone and you have to file a lawsuit whereas if an attorney handles it from the beginning they can sometimes get results short of a lawsuit.
I am all in favor of people handling matters themselves, but this is one of those occasions where it isn't likely to work and the dealership gets threatened with lawyers all the time so they don't take people seriously until a lawyer is involved.
Yes, you can look in the phone book or at www.lawyers.com. Look for one who does civil trial law or consumer law. Both of those have the skill set you need.
Anything else I can assist with?
Great. If you remember come back and let me know how everything turns out. Also, please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest excellent) so I get credit for my work. That will also lock the question open and keep it from timing out in case you need to come back to it later.
Best wishes to you! I'm going to exit now to assist others.
