    Default Illegal Tinted Car Windows in Iowa

    Hi
    Question in Iowa
    My son bought a used car in June 2009 from a used car dealership. He got pulled over by the Highway Patrol for illegal tinted windows. He found out that in Iowa, the front and side windows can not be over 17% tinted. His are over 25%. He got a $75 ticket plus $60 court cost.
    My question is what is the responsiblity of the used car dealship for selling a car with illegally tinted windows? He is going to ask them to remove the tint without a charge to him and to reimburse him for the ticket. What is their legal responsibility when selling a used car with illegal window tinting?
    Thanks

    I don't see that there's a statute that requires a used car dealer to verify that all modifications to a vehicle are changed back to "street legal" condition, although that could be affected if the vehicle had a warranty. Was the sale "as is", or with a warranty?
