Advertisement of special equipment or accessories
Vehicles are often advertised as having special equipment or accessories included in the purchase price. Often times the described special equipment and/or accessories are not included and/or not operative.
According to the California Code of Regulations, no specific vehicle shall be advertised as having special equipment or accessories unless such equipment or accessories are installed and operative at the time of the advertisement.
In the event that the dealership fails to act in conformity with these laws, the consumer is entitled to remedies to include rescission of the purchase agreement and payment for actual damages, consequential damages, punitive damages, and costs of litigation. In most instances, we are able to recover attorneys’ fees as either consequential damages or punitive damages.
