questions & answers

Question: Is a dealership under any legal obligation to disclose that a vehicle's manufacturers warranty has been voided?

Answer: THis is for informational purposes only; you may want to contact an attorney for legal advice. Assuming that this is a used car: There is an excellent article on car buyer's rights on the Arizona Attorney General's website located at this link: https://www.azag.gov/consumer/cars This article states "Almost all used cars in Arizona are sold 'as is.' That means that no matter what a salesperson may tell you, the dealer doesn’t have to fix the car if it breaks – unless (1) he says in your contract he will fix it; or (2) the problem falls within Arizona’s Lemon Law." This means that if there was a term in the contract saying the car was sold "as is," there is probably no recourse.
