Customer Question

Hi. I bought a used vehicle from a dealer in May of 2015. I was recently rear-ended by someone and when the insurance company inspected the damage they found damage from a prior accident. My insurance company can't find a shop to fix the current damage because the prior accident damage was not repaired properly. Do I have an recourse against the dealer for selling me a car that was previously in an accident and they did not disclose that information?
JA: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?
Customer: Arizona. I have not spoken to an attorney yet I would like to see if there is something I can do before doing so.
JA: Have you contacted the manufacturer?
Customer: I contacted the dealership that I purchased the vehicle from.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I have GAP insurance that I purchased from the dealer when I bought the car that covers it for 24 months/24000 miles. Don't know if that helps
