Last month, a Connecticut Superior Court judge found that A Better Way Wholesale Autos in Naugatuck, CT had committed unfair trade practices when it to told a consumer that she had to buy various extras in order to finance her car purchase and then refused to refund her deposit when she refused. An arbitrator has just reached a similar ruling in a new case.
The most important thing that a consumer should do before buying a used car is have an independent mechanic inspect the car or truck. A qualified inspector can help car buyers avoid vehicles with serious defects or other problems. Additionally, any minor problems identified in the inspection can help the consumer to either negotiate a better price or convince the dealership to make certain repairs or replace worn parts.
