A GM Dealer settled with our client for selling a vehicle with prior damage that they claimed they had no knowledge of. Plaintiff alleged that the damage was obvious and had expert testimony stating it was obvious to any professional buyer, and that as a result the vehicle was worth much less that what the client paid for it. Plaintiff also alleged that this damage was known or should have been known at the time of purchase, since the dealer claimed the vehicle went through a certified vehicle inspection. The settlement was in an amount acceptable to both parties and consisted of legal fees, costs, and actual damages suffered by the consumer. This case went through two trials, both ending in mistrials. Shortly before the third trial was set to take place, the case settled. The names and amounts cannot be released due to confidentiality on the settlement agreement.
