The consumer rights attorney author of this blog hereby announces the filing of a lawsuit against Magic Auto Center of Panorama City, California. The lawsuit was filed on March 14, 2013 and is titled Gonzalez v. Magic Auto Center, et al. (Los Angeles County Superior Court Case No. LC100049).
Complaint Against Magic Auto Center
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit is Sandra Gonzalez, a Los Angeles County consumer who purchased a used Lexus GS300 from Magic Auto Center’s Panorama City location in September, 2012. The complaint alleges that a Magic Auto Center’s employee told Ms. Gonzalez that the Lexus GS300 had been thoroughly inspected and was in excellent condition. However, Ms. Gonzalez alleges that after she purchased the vehicle, she soon discovered that it had defects that cause the vehicle’s suspension to bounce in an unsafe manner and which also cause the check engine light to illuminate. The lawsuit alleges that she also found out that the Lexus GS300 had been in at least two serious prior accidents.
Based on these allegations, the complaint alleges that Magic Auto Center violated the implied warranty imposed by California’s lemon law, committed common law fraud, violated California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act, is engaged in business practices that violate California’s Unfair Competition Law statute.
The complaint also alleges that Magic Auto Center has an illegal practice of requiring that used car purchasers sign documents purportedly requiring them to reaffirm their purchase contracts if and when they declare bankruptcy. According to the complaint, this is an unenforceable promise that is without any legal effect.
Please note: it is important to remember that these are only disputed allegations made in a lawsuit, Magic Auto Center has denied all liability and wrongdoing, and the Court has not yet made a finding that Magic Auto Center did anything wrong or in any way illegal.
