Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Whether or not you have recourse against a used car dealer regarding an odometer issue depends on whether the dealer knew about the issue and failed to disclose it.
If you can't prove that the dealer knew of the issue, then it would be unlikely that any recovery would be available against the dealer.
You'd have to sue and subpoena the dealership's files on this vehicle to see if there is any information in the paperwork that indicates issues with the odometer or accident history. IF so, you would have a claim. If not, it would be tough to prove they knew or should have known something like this.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
The only agency I can think of that could assist would be the consumer fraud division of your state's attorney general's office. You could certainly start there, and their investigators can advise you on how to proceed after reviewing all relevant information.
No problem and good luck with this.
