I had just gotten divorced and they saw "naive" coming. I had 4 witnesses at work meet with me & the salesman, I believed what he said he would do, replace the front bumper, complete extended warranty, etc. I failed to get this in writing. Pick up the car, sign, sorry, you signed, it is not in writing. My witnesses wrote letters, too bad. As a result I have lost a few thousand and I am not a rich person, single self supporting female. Now I'm stuck w/this mess for 3 years until it is paid off. There should be something that can be done for grossly dishonest sales people that use people for financial gain.

    I know the one in SA tx *starcrest*, the owner is dishonest.
    He over charged me for parts and the outcome of my vehicle was worse then ever.
    he said he couldnt fix it but I should pay for ALL new parts.
    I decided to take it to a nearby autorepairs shop and turns out it was just a burnt out wire. So, no need for $3ooo something dollars for ALL new engine parts.

    I went to the same shop with my Ferrari 348Ts. He charged me a fraction of what the Ferrari dealer charges. My engine lights that have been on for years (on and off) finally went out and stayed out until this day. Later on a return visit they fixed my alternator and did some work for $250. Ferrari (I do like Ferrari of Washington FYI) would have charged me thousands. Jim the owner even helped me when my car stopped on York road after hours. I never knew him before this, but found him very honest. He even drove me home personally!

    Breaking NEWS: SAN FRANCISCO (CN) — A federal judge this week again dismissed with leave to amend a lawsuit claiming Mercedes Benz defrauded customers by having designated service shops install third-party parts at Mercedes prices.
    Lead plaintiff Steve Ferrari lobbed claims of fraud and conspiracy at Mercedes and its dealerships in a federal lawsuit filed this past September.
    Ferrari and 18 named co-plaintiffs said Mercedes "directly participated" in the fraud scheme by stating on its website that its dealers only use genuine Mercedes parts, despite knowing that information was false.
    The complaint also accuses dealerships Autobahn Motors and Sonic Automotive of reselling original parts to third parties, using non-original parts to repair customer vehicles, and then charging customers Mercedes prices for non-genuine parts.
    In February, U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers dismissed the complaint with leave to amend, finding in part that the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act does not authorize holding companies like Mercedes liable for allegedly "aiding and abetting" a fraud scheme.
    On May 10, Gonzalez Rogers again granted Mercedes and its dealerships' motion to dismiss the lawsuit with leave to amend.
    Mercedes had argued in court filings that Ferrari's first amended complaint suffered from the same defects as its original lawsuit — namely that it was "rife with contradictions" on Mercedes' role in the alleged conspiracy.
    For instance, the complaint claims Mercedes knew of and actively concealed the scheme, but it also states Mercedes "should have known" about the use of non-original parts and that it "could have found out all about the non-OEM fraud."
    Autobahn said in its motion to dismiss that the plaintiffs failed to adequately allege the existence of RICO enterprise because there was no "distinct enterprise conduct" between Autobahn and its employees.
    The dealerships also argued the plaintiffs failed to specify what representations the dealerships made to plaintiffs that led them to believe the replacement parts would be original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, parts.
    Mercedes attorney Robert Hawk of Hogan Lovells in Menlo Park and Autobahn attorney Bruce Nye of Adams Nye in San Francisco did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment Friday morning.
    Ferrari's attorney, Herman Franck of Sacramento, did not return an emailed request for comment on Friday.
    The plaintiffs have until May 31 to file a second amended complaint.
