My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: California
I recently leased a new car. Here is what happened:
The car was advertised via a national lease special by a major auto manufacturer. Zero money down, no money upfront, first months lease paid etc. as the dealership didn't have the particular car that was advertised I was told to wait a day and they would get the car from a different dealer. When I signed the lease documents the mileage clause read 10k per year and 0.20 for every mile over the allowed (this is a 42 month lease). A few weeks later a friend asked me about the lease as he was interested as well to get a car from this dealer when I mentioned the leases mileage clause he told me the advertised special called out 12k per year. So I went back to the dealer, initially the sales person told me no problem they would change it. A few hours later the Assistant Sales Manager called me back saying there is no way of changing my lease now....too late in the game. So far even after talking to the General Sales Manager they say sorry this is it - no changes. The difference could potentially cost me another $1,400 at the end of the lease.
Do I have any legal recourse to make the dealership honor the deal that was advertised? Small claims court?
Thanks in advance for any help in this matter.
