Prominent California lemon law attorney Michael R. Vachon, Esq. sues Mercedes-Benz Fairfield for allegedly selling automobiles to consumers for more than the prices at which they were advertised.
March 24, 2013 (Newswire.com) - Mercedes-Benz Fairfield, the popular Fairfield, California Mercedes-Benz dealer, has been sued by a prolific Southern California consumer law firm for allegedly failing to inform car buyers of the dealer's advertised prices, and selling automobiles for more their publicized asking prices. The lawsuit is titled Murray et al. v. Mercedes-Benz Fairfield, and was filed on February 14, 2013 in California's Solano County Superior Court.
The complaint in the Murray v. Mercedes-Benz Fairfield case alleges that the Plaintiffs (a Manteca, California couple) went to Mercedes-Benz Fairfield in March, 2012 and purchased a used 2007 Toyota Tundra. It further alleges that the dealership had previously published ads for the Toyota Tundra on the Internet with an asking price lower than the price that Mercedes-Benz Fairfield charged the Plaintiffs. The complaint goes on to allege that California law prohibits licensed car dealers from selling automobiles for more than their advertised prices, unless the ads specifically state that the prices are good for a limited time only.
Mercedes-Benz Fairfield answered the complaint by denying the allegations and asserting that it committed no wrongdoing. The Solano County Superior Court has not yet determined whether or not the complaint's allegations are true
The Plaintiffs are represented by prominent Southern California lemon law lawyer Michael R. Vachon, Esq. According to Vachon, instances of dealers selling automobiles for more than their advertised prices are on the rise, particularly in used car transactions. He also says that with the proliferation Internet advertising, it's easier than ever for consumers to make sure they didn't pay too much for their newly-purchased car or truck. He recommends that car buyers use an Internet search engine, like Google or Bing, to search for their automobile's vehicle identification ("VIN") number. Since California car dealers are required to include VIN numbers in all of their advertisements, a search for the car's VIN number will usually produce several of the dealer's recent ads for that particular car or truck
Vachon has also announced that he is looking for, and attempting to contact, other Mercedes-Benz Fairfield customers to see if they paid too much for their automobiles. He is requesting that they call his law firm at 1-855-4-LEMON-LAW (1-855-453-6665) to discuss their experience with the Fairfield, California dealership, including how much they paid.
