How do I sue a car dealership?

What’s the best way to sue a car dealership? I bought a new car, and it broke down in less than a week! They won’t reimburse me, and they won’t honor the warranty.

Suing a car dealership is a long, involved process—but it may be worthwhile if you were really scammed. To successfully sue a dealership, you’ll need to prove:
  • that you suffered a financial loss, and
  • that the dealership is responsible for that loss.
You can collect evidence for your case by taking pictures of any damages and documenting all communications between you and the dealership. Before you start a lawsuit, you’ll also need to get a good lawyer to help you with the process—since it can be excessively intricate. Remember, lawsuits can cost you loads of money over years of litigation. Before you file anything, make sure you’re prepared to take it to court.
