Frame Damage. Tips to Avoid This Scam.

In some cases, car buyers purchase a vehicle to find out later that the vehicle they purchased has a body or other types of frame damage. Pursuant to the law car dealers are required to disclose material facts regarding the vehicle to purchasers. The failure of the car dealer to disclose the consumer that the vehicle was damaged is considered a dealer fraud.

Keep in mind that damaged vehicles are valued at 25-80% of the price you have paid and possibly nothing if the prior damages were severe.

The cases when the consumer is sold a vehicle with previous frame damage are more common than you think.

If you believe that the vehicle you have purchases has been damaged before you bought it then you should contact a dealer fraud attorney in your state and start a claim against your car dealership.
