Can I still claim that dealer's warranty as being valid? 1 Answers as of September 08, 2017

I bought a used car. The dealer had the car transferred from an affiliate dealer. The car had a 90 day, 4,000 mi. dealer's warranty sticker on the window. I signed an implied warranty document when I bought the car, thinking that meant the dealer's warranty. But later, they told me the dealer's warranty wasn't valid because I hadn't bought the car from the other dealer and that they weren't offering the warranty.

It depends WHEN they told you and whether they afforded you an opportunity to void the transaction. If you learned within a day or two, they should have offered to void the transaction. If you learned a month later AFTER the engine blew, you are probably out of luck. The rationale would be as follows: If your decision to purchase the car relied so heavily on the Warranty, you would have asked more questions. Still, you may have a Consumer Fraud action against the dealer. Make an appointment to discuss all relevant details with a local attorney. This should be at no charge to you.
