Beware of Dealer “Certified” Vehicles

Our client purchased a 2007 Shelby GT 500 Mustang from Lithia Toyota of Redding as an “Assured” vehicle that allegedly went through a rigorous 160-point inspection. Vehicles sold by dealers that are “certified” but called another name must still follow the laws in California regarding certification. After purchase, our client kept experiencing mechanical problems. When he took it to an independent repair shop, they found several problems, including that the vehicle’s clutch was an after-market racing clutch and the vehicle isn’t safe to drive. The repairs were estimated at over $2,500!
If you’ve purchased a car from a dealership that came with any kind of dealer multi-point inspection and end up experiencing problems with your vehicle, you may have a “certified” vehicle that wasn’t inspected or certified properly.
