My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Wisconsin
Less then 30 days ago I purchased a used vehicle at a large and reputable dealer.
Before seeing the vehicle, I emailed the sales person and asked if the vehicle had an ABS system. I received a reply, stating the vehicle did have ABS. A day later I came out and looked at the vehicle in person. I looked at he Wisconsin Used Vehicle Buying Guide in the window, the entry ABS System had a check marked status of "No Problems Found" (available options to check mark were "Problems Found" and "Not Equipped").
Other similar vehicles I looked at did not have ABS, which I've seen reflected on other Buying Guides as Not Equipped.
After verbal confirmation the vehicle had ABS, after haggling I purchased it. Realized today though there's no ABS light when the vehicle is starting, I opened the hood, and there is no ABS pump-- it doesn't have ABS.
Had I known this I wouldn't have bought it. It concerns my wife the most, I even told the sales person ABS was a deal breaker.
I have not contacted anyone because I'd like to know what my options are. In the perfect world I'd have them take the car back, but I'm sure it's not that easy. However I'm quite upset, either willfully or not willfully the vehicle was misrepresented and I purchased it based off the information.
