Jones v. EZ Auto Solutions, Inc., et al.
(Note: The parties settled this lawsuit pursuant to a mutually acceptable settlement agreement.)
The Vachon Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against the Sacramento, California used car dealership EZ Auto Solutions. The plaintiff is Ms. Emma Jones, a senior citizen who lives in Daly City, California. The lawsuit was filed on August 14, 2012 in the Sacramento County Superior Court, and is titled Jones v. EZ Auto Solutions, Inc., et al. (Sacramento County Superior Court Case No. 34-2012-00130048).
Complaint Against EZ Auto Solutions
The legal complaint filed against EZ Auto Solutions alleges that in August 2008 the Sacramento County dealership sold Ms. Jones a used 2004 Ford Explorer without telling her that the vehicle had previously been registered as a rental car. The complaint also alleges that EZ Auto Solutions knew that the Ford Explorer had previously been involved in a serious accident in which it sustained frame damage. However, notwithstanding the Sacramento dealer’s knowledge of the accident damage, it failed to disclose it to Ms. Jones. The complaint goes on to allege that EZ Auto Solutions specifically represented that the Ford Explorer was in excellent mechanical condition and did not have any frame damage.
The complaint further alleges that the dealer violated California Vehicle Code Section 11714 (which generally prohibits California car dealerships from selling automobiles at locations other than their dealership lots) by delivering the Ford Explorer’s purchase contract to Ms. Jones’s home and obtaining her signature there.
Finally, the complaint asserts that EZ Auto Solutions’s conduct violates California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act, amounts to common law fraud, and is in breach of the California Vehicle Code and Unfair Competition Law statute.
