Story Time: Consumer vs Auto Dealership

Real world stories about consumers suing car dealerships (and car dealers getting car buyers arrested)

And if that interests you, this might, too

Car Buying Tip of the Day:  This is a small tip. A few hundred dollar tip. Ask in advance (before you show up), preferably get in writing via e-mail, what the dealership charges for its documentation fee. This is one of the details I let slip on purchase day, (because I wanted the car shopping process to be over and was rushing — also on my “mistakes I made” list), and I suspect the dealership padded the fee to squeeze a few extra hundred out me. I’ve never seen a documentation fee greater than $500, until I saw the $695 that Dulles Motorcars charged me.
