My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of:Arizona. My 22 yr old daughter purchased a new car from a new car dealership using a car I owned as a trade-in. 2 months have passed, she has placed 5,600 mi on the new car and has gotten a chip in the windshield. Dealership contacts her and informs that the lender needs an additional $1,700 deposit, which she does not have. So the dealership has refunded her deposit plus the $900 they claim to have received at auction for the trade in, and sent her on her way with no car. The trade-in surely has a market value of more that $900. The dealership states that they will not charge her for time use or miles driven. The check given to her by the dealership is an out of state bank which her bank is sure to place a 10 - 15 day hold before she can get her money to purchase another car, so she'll have to endure the cost of a rental till the check does clear.
Has a crime been comitted against her by the dealership. Is there leagal action she or I should take. Thanks!
