Need legal advise ..... just bought a car

I need some help fellows. Long story short, I recently bought a used car from a dealer and paid cash downpayment, now the dealer is calling me up and saying I didn't pay them the downpayment !!! (wtf)
They didn't give me any receipts or anything except the finance contract thats signed by the finance person which clearly shows I payed them the cash downpayment.
Is that good enough for me to fight with them? do I have to give the car up? my credit is very good so there is no reason for them to refuse me the finance and hence cancel this contract !!

What should I do ? any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I'd say your done dealing with the dealership, you only owe the finance company now. Regardless if you gave them money or not, you have a contract with the title holder that says you did and they let you take the car off the lot, done deal.

+1. Dealer is SOL now. Once they give you a contract and let you drive off their lot. Finance company owns your title. And it is now between them and a dealer to deal. Which stealer was it?

Well, it was a Nissan dealer, people over there are a bunch of crooks !! I can't tell you exactly who it was until this situation is rectified.
Does anybody know any good contract lawyers who I can check with?

Wouldn't even worry about it, it's between them and the finance company.

If like WI, dealers need a dealers license to sell cars. If that is revoked, they wont be selling cars anymore. Its written how much down you paid on the copy of the buyers agreement so now its their probelm to see WTF the salesguy did with it. If they really want to push thes, write a letter and send copies to Nissan USA, the local DA, the BBB, the DMV's dealer licensing people (what ever the state agency that does the licensing) and a copy to the dealership owner stating who else you sent a copy of this letter to. More than likely the second he sees "Nissan USA, the county DA and the state agency" listed, they usually become apologetic rather quickly.

Everyone should list their experiences with dealers, whether it be good or bad. Maybe they will get a clue and treat their customers better.

I have had great luck with Elmhurst Toyota both in purchasing and warranty work. On the other hand Grossinger Toyota can suck my cack. Please stay away from there. This is the same dealer that got caught rolling back odometers a few years ago.

If you have the car I would take a COPY of the contract to the owner and talk with him. If that gets you nowhere tell him to get a lawyer and sue you. I wouldn't accrue any lawyer fees unless you absolutly have to but you may have a free consultation to really know if you have a leg to stand on.

any updates on the situation?


i try to avoid dealers at all costs, unless i need OEM parts.

I know people who bought lemons from used car lots. But they cant do much because they didn't have a mechanic look at it.

Dealers dont like warranty work because they dont really get money, out of it.

not surprised. I have had some SHITTY experiences with two Nissan dealers in that area. one in lincolnshire/rt 45 area and one in crystal lake.

but I agree. car is yours, you have paperwork-- I would just simply ignore their phone calls. and in the meantime, call a lawyer or someone to track what has happened from here on out so that your story is substantiated.

but on the other hands, independents who can do warranty work will, b/c they know they can make a customer for life-- a concept which escapes most dealerships.

I'm not an attorney, but it's pure logic: you have a contract that states that you put down $, the dealer in turn helped you obtain a loan and handed the keys over. The transaction took place and now your only obligation is to the finance company. If you didn't pay the downpayment there is no way they'd sign off on that contract and let you drive off.
