Purchasing a new or used vehicle is often an exciting and enjoyable experience that many consumers look forward to. However, two men in West Virginia are far from happy. According to a wvrecord.com article, two men who signed a motor vehicle purchase contract with American Suzuki Motor Corporation, Wells Fargo Auto Finance and Logan Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Suzuki for a 2008 Suzuki Forenza, are now suing these companies and a car dealership for multiple infractions, some of which include fraud, misrepresentation, unfair and deceptive practices, and violation of lemon law.
According to the article, the plaintiffs allege they were denied advertised vehicle credit terms of no money down and $99 a month. After agreeing to submit a credit application and attempting to buy the vehicle, they were told the original terms were not an option and “just a promotional gimmick.”
Even more controversial is the claim that the men were not notified about any denial or rejection in writing of their request for the advertised deal. In addition, after the men bought the vehicle, they encountered continuous problems with the vehicle’s use, safety, and value. They even returned the car to the dealership for repairs unsuccessfully at least four times. In their suit, the men are hoping to have their contract cancelled and recover punitive and compensatory damages.
