After purchasing a used vehicle from a car dealer and later discovering that the dealer concealed the true condition of the vehicle, you are likely feeling frustrated and angry. Consumers enter into these transactions with the assumption that the dealer will be forthcoming and honest about the product they are selling. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. As a result, you may need to pursue a claim against the dealer for auto fraud. As part of this process, it is important to collect certain documentation from the dealer.

5 Important Documents to Request In Order to Support Your Auto Fraud Claim

What documentation will you need to request as part of the discovery process in an auto fraud case? The following are five examples:

  1. Documents relating to the previous owners of the vehicle which includes a DMV title history.
  2. The sales documents relating to the dealer’s purchase of the vehicle as well as the subsequent sale to you as the vehicle’s purchaser.
  3. Copies of all repair documents relating to the vehicle.
  4. Copies of all policy and procedure manuals implemented by the dealership.
  5. Any CarFax or AutoCheck report the dealer has ordered on your car prior to your purchase.
