Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
If I may ask, are you sure that they were aware of past damage? I do not simply ask this lightly, the reason that is key is because to prove fraud or misrepresentation, you must show that the dealer KNOWINGLY failed to disclose known defects or issues with the vehicle. If you can meet that threshold, or believe that you can, then you can contact the Florida Attorney General's Office, and file a grievance with their consumer protection division, and also file suit directly for damages based on fraud and material misrepresentation of the state of the vehicle.
