Good day. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Do you have any written evidence of the agreement to apply a monthly payment to repairs?
Thank you for the additional information.
Without any written evidence it is going to be difficult to prove the claim because the a written agreement (your car loan) can only be modified by another written agreement.
First, file a consumer complaint with the AZ Attorney General. You can file it online at the following link:
If the AG gets enough complaints about them they could put them out of business by filing to revoke their business license. If the dealer does stuff like this to others then it is possible that other customers have filed complaints.
You may also have a complaint for consumer fraud for which you can sue under the AZ consumer fraud statutes. The good thing about that is, if you prevail, you can be eligible to recover punitive damages and your attorney fees, as well.
