I am in a crazy situation due to the cash for clunkers program. i bought a new honda fit on wednesday before the official date of Friday 23rd for kickoff. the law clearly states that a dealer that wrtes a contract before the final rule was issued must assume the full responsiblility for getting the rebate from the government. i signed the contract and turned over my clunker that meets all requirements and wrote them a check for the balance. my check has cleared and they now want me to sign some papers accepting full responsibility for them getting paid by the government or else they want the new car back. i told them to take a hike and they are threatening to snatch the new car. At this point, the new car is locked in my garage and i have told them that i will give them a very short timeframe to deliver my title and then i will file a fraud claim against them under the provisions of the CARS act and start filing whatever other claims i can file for free prior to lawyering up.
How about calling your congress critter’s constituent services office? This clearly falls in their purview, as it’s a gov’t program at issue.
