Car dealerships cannot legally sell above the advertised price than what they advertised. Surprisingly, dealerships still sell above the advertised price than what they originally advertised on a seemingly regular basis. Many will state that the listed price was simply an “accident,” or that the new, higher price is the only one that they even know of. Regardless of their excuse, they cannot sell you a car above the advertised price.
When it is OK for Dealer to Sale Above Advertised Price?
If the customer asks for additional features to be added to the car, such as new rims, the price will increase, and the dealer is within their rights. Adding more features and accessories to the car will increase the price, and all of those add-ons should be included in your sales contract with the dealership as well.
You Paid Over the Advertised Price, Now What?
If the dealership sold you a car above the advertised price than what they advertised online (or elsewhere), you can sue the car dealer for auto fraud. Even after the car is sold, it’s often easy to find a copy of the advertisement by searching online by the VIN number of your vehicle. If you can find an ad with a price that is lower than what you paid to the dealer for the car, you may be able to file a lawsuit to get the difference back.
