Customer Question
We bought a truck...

We bought a truck from a dealership in Springfield and while there we had to wait 4 hours for their mechanic to go through everything to make sure everyting is right and properly working, however, that was not the case, ever since we left with the truck it has been giving us problems and costing us a lot of money that same day and the days that follows. The dealership refuse to help us on this matter and will not help with the costs even though they sold us a faulty truck without telling us it is faulty. What do we do because we have lost a lot of money and every day that the truck is standing in a workshop, we loose money.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?

I am in Kansas but the dealership is in Missouri. I have nobody helping with this as yet

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

This is the first step, I have tried to deal with this patiently and tried for the dealership to assist but now it is coming to the point where I need to get legal advice

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, just that we haven't had the truck for a full week yet and already 3 times in the workshop

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.
