Can I Sue a Car Dealership for Misrepresentation?

If you just bought a car and it’s not working as it should, you may be wondering if you can sue the dealership. If the dealership made a material misrepresentation in order to sell you the car, you might have a case.

There are many forms of misrepresentation. For example the dealer may have lied to you about the condition of the vehicle. You may have asked the dealer if your car was ever in an accident. If that car was in an accident and the dealer answered no, that lie is a misrepresentation. Another common misrepresentation is false advertisement, such as bait and switch. You might see a dealer advertise a car for one price, and then attempt to sell it for a higher price or attempt to sell you a different vehicle altogether.

Another misrepresentation that you can sue a dealership for is lying about the mileage. Federal and state laws require accurate disclosures of a vehicle’s mileage. If a dealer fails to tell the truth about the mileage, you might be able sue that dealer.
