Miller, et al. v. PAC Auto Group, Inc., et al. – Undisclosed Prior Rental’s Engine Fails, Buyer Without Vehicle for Nearly Two Years

In the case of Miller v. PAC Auto Group, Inc., Mr. Miller alleges Pacific Auto Center in Fontana, California, sold him a used 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 without properly disclosing the truck was a prior rental vehicle. This practice violates Vehicle Code section 11713(t).


Mr. Miller further alleges that, within just a week of the transaction, the truck began to show signs of severe mechanical disrepair. The Check Engine Light illuminated. Mr. Miller started hearing sounds from the engine area. Mr. Miller claims Pacific Auto Center would not fix it. He claims not even the service contract company would fix it. Ultimately, he was without his truck for almost two years while the truck underwent a nearly $30,000 engine replacement. During this time, Mr. Miller claims he kept up with his monthly payments despite not even having the truck.
