Consumer Dealership problem with new lease and old lease
15 months ago I was in an auto accident, my insurance repaired 5 month old car at a cost of $25k in repairs alone (the payout was $30k). 1 year later I want to upgrade to an ’06 model at same dealership that repaired my original car. I told the sales manager I was in an accident and their shop repaired it. I spent 2 days negotiating a deal that I ended up backing away from because I thought they were giving me too little for my trade in because it was in an accident. A week later I decided to go for the new car and I went back and they honored the original deal. During the document signing phase I also told the finance manager that the car was in accident but it was repaired by their dealership if that was a problem, he said no. Yesterday I get a call from the General Sales Manager who said that I signed an indemnity agreement which states ”vehicle does not have frame damage and if it does that I have to pay the ACV”. He said the car has frame damage and that we can swap the cars back and unwind the deal or I can pay $5k more to keep the deal. Here is my concern: After all the negotiation and me telling them the car was worked on they never once checked. Also, how can it have frame damage if they repaired it? Do I have any rights?

Apartment Community Guaranteed Heating and Cooling Cost
I recently completed a short term rental lease (7months) on a brand new apartment while my new home was being built. Outside the complex was an enticing sign that said, “VA Power presents $1.oo a day heating and cooling costs guaranteed by Comfort Home of Virginia.” We signed a lease and moved in December. January was one of the coldest and snowyest on record. I soon found my electric bills to be as high as my former(much larger)home. I approached the site manager on many occassions, even giving her copies of my power bills. She could offer
no explaination, only that she would pass it along to the complex owner. She did send a maintenance person once who said the themostat may have been installed slightly tilted which may have had an effect. They told me it would go back to the subcontractors. Bottom line–we moved out and nothing was done. I have called Comfort Home. They said that the heating/cooling cost were based on an averaged determined from a controlled study and what the owner chose to do with the info was his affair so far as advertising. VA power said the kilowatt usage was estimated very, very low in the controlled study and not realistic at all.
