Our client alleges she leased a new 2017 Kia Sportage in 2017 for 3 years from Car Pros Kia in Carson. At the end of the lease our client went to Covina Valley Kia to return the 2017 Kia and purchase another car. Our client alleges that when she inquired about a purchasing a new car Covina Valley Kia said it would be much better to buy the 2017 Kia Sportage she had been leasing. Our client alleges in that order to make the sale Covina Valley Kia also said it would provide a 10-year warranty service contract for free. She also alleges Covina Valley Kia informed her that “by law” it had to certify the car and charged our client $2500 for the certification. Finally, our client alleges that, (1) although the Residual Value of the 2017 Kia Sportage under the Lease was: $19,035, Covina Valley Kia charged our client $23,000 as the purchase price; (2) Covina Valley Kia charged her $2,500 for a service contract which it represented would be “free”; (3) there was no law requiring “certification”; and (4) the representations as to certifying the 2017 Kia Sportage were deceptive and misleading.
