Recent News – Consumer Law/Odometer Disclosure Violation

Earlier this month, attorneys from Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC filed a civil action on behalf of a Pennsylvania couple, who sought to purchase a special edition of the GM’s Chevrolet Camaro Coupe – affectionately known as the “Bumblebee” in the Transformers movie franchise, but were (instead) swindled by an auto dealership from Newark, Delaware. As alleged in the complaint, among other things, the Porter Automotive Group misrepresented the condition of the “Bumblebee” in the internet advertisement and, then, failed to disclose the actual mileage of the vehicle. These practices are unlawful and our clients seek declaratory and monetary relief under the Motor Vehicle and Cost Saving Act (also known as the “Odometer Act”), 49 U.S.C. § 32701 et seq., the Pennsylvania Odometer Disclosure Law, 75 Pa.C.S. § 7131 et seq.,the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 15 U.S.C. § 2301 et seq., and the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law, 73 Pa.C.S. § 201-1 et seq., and common law.
