Customer Question
I bought a used...

I bought a used car, 2001 Wrangler, 18 months ago and it has a rotted out frame. major suspension parts started falling off 8 months ago. Do I have any recourse ?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Can I get the dealership to compensate me somehow ?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

No. I know that won't go anywhere given the age of the vehicle.

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

Not that I know of..

Good morning. When you purchased the vehicle, was any warranty given on it or was it sold "as is" ? Was the truck inspected prior to purchase?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
