(1) DEALERSHIP ALLEGEDLY SELLS A USED VEHICLE AS NEW — Petersen v. Thorson GMC Truck-Build Motor Co. dba Thorson Motor Center GMC

“Our clients purchased a 2015 GMC Yukon from Thorson Motor Center GMC in Pasadena, California, for approximately $74,000. Our clients allege the dealership told them the vehicle was new, and came with a full 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. In reality, the vehicle was not new, and its warranty had been placed into service nearly 8-months before the vehicle was sold. Our clients discovered the truth when repairs were needed to a part that should have been covered under warranty. After the dealership failed to return their phone calls, our clients turned to the Auto Fraud Legal Center for help. We filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging the dealership committed fraud, and sold the vehicle in violation of California law, including the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act and the California Vehicle Code. The case settled when Thorson Motor Center GMC repurchased the Vehicle and paid our client’s attorneys’ fees and costs.
