Green v. AAA Auto Group


In November 2014, our clients went to AAA Auto Group in the city of Oceanside, in the San Diego County, to look at used vehicles. Our clients decided to purchase a 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK from AAA Auto Group. They were led to the financing office. There, the finance manager told our clients that in order to get financed, they would have to give a $2,500 down payment. Our clients told the finance manager that they did not have that amount on hand. The finance manager told our clients they could pay the down payment in installments directly to the dealership, which they did. This agreement, however, was not put into their purchase contract. The complaint alleges that the failure to disclose the deferred downpayment agreement is a violation of the Automobile Sales Finance Act and the Consumers Legal Remedies Act. Had our clients not contacted the Auto Fraud Legal Center regarding other issues they were having with their 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK, they never would have known about this violation.

If AAA Auto Group in Oceanside, or your dealership, failed to disclose material facts about your down payment or other facts about your car, truck or SUV, or if you were a victim of other illegal dealer conduct, please contact Rosner, Barry & Babbitt’s Auto Fraud Legal Center will provide you with a FREE evaluation of potential dealer fraud in your vehicle purchase. We fight on the side of the consumer.
