California Car dealership Fraud Law: What You Should Know

Selling a car without honestly stating the mileage on the odometer is a felony actionable under the Vehicle Information & Cost Savings Act otherwise known as the Truth in Mileage Act. When the car dealer fails to disclose accurate odometer information to the purchaser of the vehicle, then the dealership will be liable. It is required that the dealers have more than just constructive knowledge, but must act with a certain degree of intent to be found liable. In such instances the dealer’s employee acting as an agent of the dealership can be found to act with intent when he fails to disclose material information regarding the odometer reading or status of the car. When a salesman aggressively pursues a sale they often fail to take into account ethical considerations, such as honesty in disclosing odometer readings and title. While not all acts are intentional and some are a result of negligence recovery is still possible for the diminished value of the vehicle as well as recovery under other theories such as breach of warranty or misrepresentation.
