Direct Auto Plaza Sued for Alleged Fraud and Violation of California's Lemon Law and Auto Financing Statutes
Direct Auto Plaza sued by prominent Southern California consumer-protection law firm for alleged fraud and violation of California's lemon law and automobile financing statutes.
El Centro, California (I-Newswire) October 6, 2013 - The Vachon Law Firm, a prolific San Diego, California based consumer law firm, has announced the filing of a lawsuit against the car dealership Direct Auto Plaza of El Centro, California. The lawsuit was filed in California's Imperial County Superior Court and alleges that Direct Auto Plaza violated numerous California consumer protection statutes. The lawsuit was filed in September 2013, and is titled Torres v. Direct Auto Plaza (Case Number ECU07861).
THE LAWSUIT'S ALLEGATIONS
The lawsuit's Complaint alleges that the consumer Plaintiffs visited Direct Auto Plaza in 2011, where they purchased a used 2010 Dodge Charger. The Plaintiffs allege in their lawsuit that prior to purchasing the Dodge Charger Direct Auto Plaza's representatives told them that the vehicle had been inspected and was in excellent condition. However, according to the Complaint, the Plaintiffs later learned that it had been involved in a serious accident in which it sustained frame damage.
In addition to these claims, the Plaintiffs also allege that when they purchased the Dodge Charger they were unable to make an immediate down payment large enough for Direct Auto Plaza to find a lender to finance the sale. They further allege that Direct Auto Plaza falsified the down payment and deferred down payment amounts in their purchase contract so that the dealer could obtain their signatures on the contract before they changed their minds and to trick a lender into approving an auto loan that it otherwise would have rejected.
The Plaintiffs are represented in the case by the Vachon Law Firm, which has a reputation for aggressively pursuing car dealerships in California lemon law, fraud, and automobile financing cases. The lawsuit includes numerous causes of action under California's consumer protection statutes, including the California lemon law statute, the Automobile Sales Finance Act, the Credit Services Act, and the Consumers Legal Remedies Act. The firm has posted more details about the case on its Internet website.
California's Imperial County Superior Court has not yet made any rulings regarding whether or not the Plaintiffs' allegations are true, and Direct Auto Plaza is expected to deny all of the Complaint's allegations when it answers in the case.
