Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response both initially and when you add a follow up question or add facts. Please don't ask "are you there", "where is my answer", etc., since when you post it can erase what I am working on. If we are having a conversation unless I tell you I am going offline, I will be here but I may be doing research.

I'm not sure what you mean by "How do I file a Magnusson Moss complaint...". The complaint in this type of case is a lawsuit and learning how to file a complaint requires considerably more time and information that it is possible to provide in a format like this.

If you're asking how a lawsuit works, I can explain that to you, or if you are asking about any specific parts of the pleadings, I can answer those as well. However, I need to know the specific questions you have as opposed to a general one.

It sounds like I can't file a complaint, but I need an attorney to file a lawsuit against the dealer. Would this be a federal lawsuit?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
