Do they expect someone to pay for every mistake that is made at the dealership by its employees? On your new TT they will expect the factory to pay for the warranty work. If a tire had a nail in it would you have to buy a new tire? How about a crack in the frame, bad AC unit or converter? They are just fishing for some cash.

Just remember that the legal advice you have received here is worth what you paid for it. If you do get a demand letter from the dealer's attorney, you will need real legal advice pronto. From experience I can say with certainty that if you get into a lawsuit it will be expensive whether you win or lose. $3,200 would be chump change in a lawsuit.

I'm still with what stinks here. And the stink just gets worse and worse.

They say they've already done the work so there's no chance of an independent inspection, getting quotes from other shops, etc. So you are taking their word for everything, including, conveniently, the cost.

And of course the whole "you should have known" -- how? By the visible damage? If it was visible, why didn't they see it?

I assume you haven't found any clause in the paperwork you signed that not only makes you liable for the condition being bad, but that you have to waive the right to do anything but let them repair it as they see fit at whatever cost they deem reasonable. I suspect such a clause would be deemed unreasonable and unenforceable in court in any case (there are certainly things that you cannot sign away, even if you sign a form).

You've reached the point where the only reasonable response is to say, politely, that your attorney has advised you not to have any further discussions with them at all. And then say good day, and end the phone call.

If they file suit, then you will need to retain an attorney, but honestly, I will be shocked if that happens. And if they were to file in small claims court, where no attorneys are involved, I would still be shocked if the judge wouldn't give them a stern talking to for doing the work before consulting you before tossing their case.

well then, they altered the roof from what they previously stated was the issue. therefore you are not provided the evidence ( even if they have photos ) to prove their case.

their just pissed you aren't recouping their mistakes.....

good luck and stop answering their calls and stop letting us respond to this.

go enjoy your new mobile mansion.

Really, you think the dealer is going to want to get a lawyer? At best probably small claims case

If the OP didn't see any visual damage and it was not seen in the pre trade-in inspection, I don't see how the OP can be faulted or responsible.

I reiterate, they are grabbing at straws.

Look up your State limitations in your state, but in California a judge would only allow something of this amount to be heard in small claims court. You can have an attorney but the cases usually go really quick, and would most likely be done in less than 1 hour. If they are stupid enough to push this, and you got an attorney, the judge would order they pay your attorney if you win. I really don't think they are going to risk losing even more money, when they are the ones who screwed up.


At this point they are just seeing what you will agree too with their scare tactics. They have probably done this before with others who agreed to pay as they didn't want any problems with a court hearing/lawsuit.

Actually, I didn't say I thought the dealer would get a lawyer- somebody else said he might. What I said is IF the dealer goes after this gentleman with an attorney then he will need his own attorney. I have no way of knowing what the dealer will or will not do and don't intend to speculate one way or the other.

The same thing happened to me a few years ago. After signing the papers on a new one and getting ready to drive off the salesman said we owned them another 2000 bucks because the roof was repaired in a spot on top.
We told them before we SIGHNED the papers everything that was wrong. The roof etc.
We told them to tear the papers up, we were taking our old trailer back. After a few minutes, they said never mind and we were on our way with the new one. We are never going to deal with them never again!!!!!!
