Buying, Selling, or Leasing a Vehicle

Buying a New Car

What if the ad omits details?

If the dealer knows of important facts about the vehicle, but fails to reveal them, the law may consider that as a deceptive act that could enable you to cancel the deal and even recover damages in court. Clearing up the missing facts later does not erase the dealer's deceitful act.
