Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. Did you, as the buyer, agree to this price? Did you perform any research or due diligence prior to buying it, to see what the market value was and/or what you felt the price should be?
Thank you. It is going to be hard to sue the dealer. I say this because the price was agreed to by the parties. Prior to purchasing it, there is an obligation on the buyer to perform their due diligence and decide if the asking price is fair to them. If not, a counter offer can always be made and if the car is priced higher then it should be, a party can walk away. Dealers are in the business of making money. They want to make as much off a car as they can and if a buyer is willing to pay what they are asking, there is nothing wrong with that. However, if you can show that they tricked you and induced you into buying the car, based upon misrepresentation, it is possible that you could prevail. You would need and want to have something in writing, that establishes and shows exactly what a buyers market price is.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
