Lozzy997 I wish you the best of luck! Just stay cool and calm during this but stay firm with your demands and dont let the dealer try to sweet talk themselves out of this! Keep us updated!

I would suggest speaking directly to the Manager of the dealership and emphasize the fact that this is a CPO car and that you will be making a formal complaint to Porsche North America if they refuse to take back this car which should never have qualified as a CPO. Good luck.

I hope it works out for you. If you get in a position where you think you need a little leverage - this may be of use.

Cal Civil Code (Consumer Legal Remedies Act).

1770(a) The following unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices undertaken by any person in a transaction intended to result or which results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer are unlawful:
(5) Representing that goods or services have sponsorship, approval, characteristics, ingredients, uses, benefits, or quantities which they do not have or that a person has a sponsorship, approval, status, affiliation, or connection which he or she does not have.
(6) Representing that goods are original or new if they have deteriorated unreasonably or are altered, reconditioned, reclaimed, used, or secondhand.

And the remedies (additional leverage):

(a) Any consumer who suffers any damage as a result of the use or employment by any person of a method, act, or practice declared to be unlawful by Section 1770 may bring an action against that person to recover or obtain any of the following:

(1) Actual damages, but in no case shall the total award of damages in a class action be less than one thousand dollars ($1,000).

(2) An order enjoining the methods, acts, or practices.

(3) Restitution of property.

(4) Punitive damages.

(5) Any other relief that the court deems proper.

I'm not licensed in CA either. GL.

A two year old car with paint too thin to correct...I don't understand why people grind the hell out of their paint in the name of detailing.


Lozzy, good luck getting this resolved to your satisfaction. I would insist on undoing the deal and a reimbursement for your out-of-pocket costs...after all, they misrepresented the car.

Well first reply wasn't encouraging, accused me of being "discriminating"

I forwarded some of the CPO verbiage posted here, we shall see what happens next.

Thanks again all.

Oh, and I asked for a copy of the 111 point CPO checklist for my car, not an unreasonable request I think.

My brother and a friend traveled eight ours to view/purchase a "Excellent " pontoon boat. He said they should have sunk it and the owner to save someone else the trip.

What are your asking for them to do? The car has problems. I am only asking the obvious because you need to be perfectly clear as to what you want. If you want to cancel the entire transaction, then make sure they understand it. If they say no, you will need to seek a lawyer to help you.

CPO verbiage may be helpful but I think you want them to take the car back, and provide you with a refund.

I've asked them to take the car back. I'm just providing them with some justification behind my request.
