Certified Preowned Vehicles sold by Auto Nation Dealer

Ever hear of the ostrich defense? The attorneys Rosner, Barry & Babbitt’s Auto Fraud Legal Center see this just about on a daily basis. In the context of the sale of a used car, the service department of a dealership will inspect a vehicle, and presumably note prior collision damage. But the service department does not tell the sales department what it found! So, the sales staff can say they don’t know if the car you are considering buying has been involved in a prior accident.

In Pacheco v. Vistacal Luxury Imports, Inc., et al., SDSC County Case No. 37-2018-00012371-CU-CO-NC, our clients allege that Auto Nation dealerships have established policies and procedures to prevent the sales staff from knowing the results of any inspection performed in the service department.

Contact Jeff Le Pere if you think a dealership lied when it told you that your car was not involved in a prior accident. jeff@rbblawgroup.com
