The Vachon Law Firm has filed a lawsuit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court against Scott Robinson Honda of Torrance, California alleging that the Los Angeles County Honda dealership has an illegal practice of failing to disclose deferred down payment amounts in automobile purchase contracts. The lawsuit was filed on September 6, 2013 and is titled Posada v. Scott Robinson Honda, et al. (Case No. YC069277).
Allegations Against Scott Robinson Honda
The lawsuit’s Complaint alleges that Ms. Posada went to Scott Robinson Honda in February, 2013 shopping for an automobile. It goes on to allege that she expressed an interest and desire to purchase a 2009 Honda CRV; however, according to the Complaint, Scott Robinson Honda quickly discovered that the Plaintiff was unable to immediately make a down payment in an amount that would have allowed the dealership to obtaining financing for the deal. The Complaint asserts that because Scott Robinson Honda wanted to obtain Ms. Posada’s signature on a purchase contract before she left and had a chance to change her mind, the dealership falsified the amounts of the Plaintiff’s down payment and deferred down payment in her purchase contract for the Honda CRV. The Complaint alleges that Scott Robinson Honda did this, in part, to trick a lender into financing the deal.
