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'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

Rented a home months in Florida, advertised with heated

Rented a home for two months in Florida, advertised with heated pool,pool heater broke 2 weeks before we got there, landlord refused to repair, landlord authorized an repair appraisal ($126.00) then refused to pay for it, said he would reimburse me when my $1000.00 deposit was returned. Florida law ( I think states 15 days after leaving premises for deposit returns), but to date no deposit return or repair monies return, and false advertising on his home rental for amenities not provided. Paid $3500/ mos. x two months, asked for $1,000.0 per month credit for non use of his broken pool. Total monies due, $3126.00, we are home now in NH., need advice on who/ how to handle this.

I purchased a 2008 Honda Accord from Southwest Kia Mesquite.

Hello- I purchased a 2008 Honda Accord from Southwest Kia Mesquite. They'd advertised about maintenance they'd done and that a 40 point inspection was done. I test drove the car which was warm because someone had driven it before me. I purchased the car, but had to go out of town for the next two weeks after purchase. When I returned and began to drive the car i notice it made a noise on cold start. I took the car back to Kia who kept the car for 2 days before telling me their foreman and foreign car techs had all looked at the car and found no issue but that it was old and that's how it was supposed to sound. They told me if the noise got louder bring it back. Still concerned I took the car to a Honda dealer to have it double checked .they found the problem. I immediately called Kia but let the Honda dealer fix the car because at that point I didn't trust that Kia would fix it correctly because they couldn't find the issue to begin with. I feel they falsely advertised that the car had no issues and should at least pay for the repairs. I've contacted them and finally spoke to the General Manager who declined to pay. My question is can I sue them for this issue? They are telling me to get the warranty that they never offered me before I financed the car. I would have needed that financed and cannot pay it now.

My question surrounds any applicable laws regarding

My question surrounds any applicable laws regarding permission to use employee photos. So my company is a large after school provider who hires part-time employees to work at various schools across the U.S. On our website we have pictures of employees servicing the children we serve, some of the employees have since terminated. Do employers have to get permission to use employees photos, if so, is this something that we should include in our new hire paperwork. Is this anything we need to be concerned about, are we at risk of terminated employees making issues if their pictures are on our website, etc.

Do I have any rights if I bidder on a car at an auction. They

Do I have any rights if I bidder on a car at an auction. They came to me and said they no longer have that vehicle but a better year for $300 more but said it was the same color. They told me I needed to come back Monday I came back today and asked to view the vehicle and it was damaged like it had been in a car accident and it was a different color. They have $1000 of my money but says no refund. I still don't have the car because they charge an additional $1200 for their fees plus I owe $700 from my orig. Bid. Do I have any rights to my money back?
