  • Car lot owner took my car, and damaged it!

    My girlfriend was trying to sell her car, and brought it to her local car dealer, where they said they would put it in there lot to sell for her.. Months have gone by, and she didnt hear from the dealer, and recently went to see what was going on.. When she got to the dealer, her car was gone.. It turns out the dealer had taken the car, and was using it as his own private vehicle, when it was suposed to be at the lot, for sale.. Also, while using her vehicle, he got into an accident, and several hundred dollars worth of damage was done to the vehicle..

    Now he is telling her she needs to pay to get it repaired, because it is her car.. We arent quite sure what to do.. He shouldnt have even been driving it in the first place, let alone getting into an accident. And if it would have been at the lot, there is a good chance it would have been sold already.. What can we do?

    Based on what you say here, you could file suit against him (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no could try to collect all of the costs and damages that you suffered due to his behavior... You may also report him to your state attorney general's office.

      First off, I'm so sorry that your car was damaged! Certainly not what you want to find when you're picking up your car from a garage. My first instinct tells me that the garage's insurance, specifically their Garage Keepers Legal Liability policy, should cover the damages.
