If a car dealership in MA sell a car without being in

Hi, if a car dealership in MA sell a car without being in position of its Title at that time, committing a crime? This is the scenario: customer from out of state buys a car from this dealership in Boston, Ma. Customer traded his car and took the car home the same day unregistered. Transferred plates. The dealer then finds out title is not available at their floor plan bank. They bought the car from an auction that announced car comes without title. Dealer then finds out the dealership that sold the car to auction were waiting for the title to come from customer's bank (customer who sold or traded the car to the dealership). The customer that bought the car now, waits for 2-3 months to get the title while being in position of the car. At all this time, dealership could not give the customer a definite time of when title will be arriving. This dealership has sold many cars without the title at their position in that moment. Many of their sales are trade in cars that they sell but still waiting for title to come from person who traded it prior.

I sold a used van, 1995 model, for $1100. 4 hours later the

I sold a used van, 1995 model, for $1100. 4 hours later the lady called and said the car broke. I traveled 30 minutes, found that the alternator was bad, so I went to the auto parts store, got a new one, installed it. Later that evening she texted me the lights won't shut off. I suggested she flicked the "always on switch" by mistake, but to disconnect the battery then reconnect it and that should reset the computer. Didn't hear back. Then this afternoon I get a threatening email, saying she wants her money back, there's a lemon law she can evoke because the problems were immediate. She says she will have me served, go after my license, and that she took the car to a mechanic (Sunday) and he said the heads are cracked. (which requires removing them & boiling them at a machine shop). The car blew no smoke, ran fine and was not overheating. I emailed her back that this was the wrong way to come at me, and that she should do what she needs to do. Does she have a legal leg to stand on. BTW, the title was not in my name, there is no bill of sale, I bought the car from the original owner in order to sell it and make a little money. I put in a new battery, and the alternator, each just over $100.JA: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?Customer: I am in Harrisonburg, VA and this is happening today, so no one is invloved as yet.JA: Have you contacted the manufacturer?Customer: The manufacturer of what? It's a 1995 Dodge minivan, sold as is by a private party.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Don't think so.

I have a 2015 CR-V. I purchased it in October 2015I brought

I have a 2015 CR-V. I purchased it in October 2015I brought it back to the dealer within 48 hours complaining of serious vibration that aggravated my back pain. Dealer initially refused then after I sent letters agreed to take the car back. They had nothing I wanted. Every used car they showed me had been in accidents and were junkers. Then they said they would buy back the car but not credit me tax, tag title. The GM told me there were three fixes Honda had for the problem. They did all three. They reprogrammed the computer which made it worse, and then had to install an older computer to restore it. In September 2016 a recall came out for programming and it made the problem worse. The engine lugs, sometimes doesn't accelerate at all like the transmission is stuck, and sometimes accelerates on its own. If you watch the RPMs, you can see where it vibrates around 600rpm, 1200 etc. It's so bad I can't go certain speeds on the highway.

I have a Chevy Cruze 2012 that has caused me a lot of my net

I have a Chevy Cruze 2012 that has caused me a lot of my net and a lot of problems. It does not qualify under lemon law however by all the complaints that are on these cars seems like a manufactures defect or flaw. Also the car I purchased to get to work and my son to school has not provided me with that and I am still making payments on it. I'm terrified to drive the car for fear of being stranded again for hours and because of the nauseating stench of antifreeze and or oil in side the car.
