I placed an online order this past Sunday for an item that cost less than $10 and received an email approximate 12 hours later confirming the order but showing that there was going to be an additional 200% for shipping charges. I checked back with the online listing and it did list the shipping charges but somehow I overlook this. I promptly sent an email stating that I wanted to cancel the order but they said they could not for it was already in the process of being shipped. Do I have any legal recourse?They stated I can return it and get a full refund but it will be too costly for me to return, due to the international shipping charges.

I saw a comercial of a Nissan dealer on TV of a 2016 Nissan

I saw a comercial of a Nissan dealer on TV of a 2016 Nissan versa for 9550, so I went online to check if it was true, they had me fill out some info to call me back, when they did I asked is this deal only for standard/stickshift car and she said no also for automatic I can send you a picture of the one we have in the showroom. I went to the dealer like 3 or 4 days later and they didnt have the deal for automatic but I still decided to look with a sales person, there was one versa I asked about and he said if I can get you this one for 14k with taxes and fees included do we have a deal, I said yes lets see how it comes out, so he kept coming back with numbers until he said here it is 250 a moth plus we ll give you 3200 for your trade in that was on my girl's name, so I accepted, it was late so we went over everything quick when I went home and reviewed the contract they financed over 17k that was supposedly including my trade in plus 1500 of some rebate. Now the trade in was my girlfriends car and she was the only one in the title but she refused to give the vehicle in, now they dont want to give her car back unless that amout to the loan, they completed the whole deal without her approval for the trade in. so that means the bank approved the deal without her approval. also the test drive I did the sales guy got in the car and told me to hop in then drove to a gas station and had me switch to drive without having me turn on the vehicle nor open any doors and noticed vehicle was not power locks next day. They processed the whole contract without the trade in owner(my girlfriend) signature or approval, they are keeping the car in their custody and trying to get her to sign at all means.

I'm a NYS resident. I recently purchased a used exotic car

I'm a NYS resident. I recently purchased a used exotic car from a dealership in PA. His dealership promoted the car as "comprehensively serviced by us." The car was shipped, at my expense, to my home. After driving the car for no more than 20 miles the "check engine" light went on and the following day there was a huge oil puddle under the car. The car continues to leak incessantly and the cost to repair the check engine issue ranges from $2,500 to $5,000. My mechanic (who only works on high end automobiles) pointed out a number of problems that he felt any qualified mechanic should have observed, including the selling dealer replacing parts with the WRONG parts -- wrong parts that affect the performance of the car, not simply cheap or cosmetic parts. The dealer refuses to do anything to remedy the situation as the car was sold "As is." Do have recourse? I understand that "As is" may be difficult to get around but how about false advertising or fraudulent claims as an inducement to buy? Finally, can I sue in New York? Dealer is located in Pennsylvania.

I am 70 years old. I went to Leesburg to buy a car listed on

I am 70 years old. I went to Leesburg to buy a car listed on their web site. The car in the add said it had Cruise Control; it did not. I looked at other cars from them and took a 1992 Jeep, the sale price on the contract was $3,465. The contract listed my trade in at $1,465. After getting home I looked on their Web Site; this Jeep was listed for $2,995. Is this bait and switch listing a car without the Cruise Control even the add said it had it. Selling me a car for $3,465 listed on their Web Site for $2,995. In effect giving me $0 for my trade in. I have a printout for the first car listing the Cruise Control, and a printout on the Jeep showing a sale price of $2,995.

I live in Ohio & just purchased a 2004 Nissan Maxima off eBay that was advertised as a good running car. It's been 3 days and now the car won't start. There was no warranty. My concern was the false information and I called and got a verbal that nothing was wrong with the car. Is there any action I can take?

I've sold a car, 1997 Dodge truck with 170k miles, on

Hello, I've sold a car, 1997 Dodge truck with 170k miles, on craigslist couple weeks ago. ON the add I've brought up all the good things about this car and not much about some details like maintenance needed and some small oil leaks.Now, the person who bought the vehicle sent me a msg saying that i've passed a false advertising based on the fact that he took the car to a Dodge dealer and they gave him an intense bill for all the repairs, including things that I had no idea when I sold. I work with automotive repair and I have certifications, so I'm concerned about my responsibilities even having owned this vehicle for only one year.What could I expect from this situation?thanks
