Consumer alleges distributor violated federal law

By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Dec 14, 2017

FRESNO — A Fresno woman is suing an automobile distributor, alleging violations of the Consumers Legal Remedies Act (CLRA).

Marina Cortes filed a complaint Dec. 16 in Fresno County Superior Court against Auto USA Inc., doing business as 365 Autos, Tidal Wave Finance Corporation and Does 1-30, alleging they obtained profit through unfair or deceptive trade or commerce.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 21, 2016, Cortes purchased a 2010 Chevy Equinox from the defendants with a $2,000 down payment. The suit says Cortes has been damaged and suffered a loss as a result of the defendants' fraud, misrepresentations to disclose and/or statutory violations during the course of the sale of the Equinox to plaintiff. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to disclose the required recall by the manufacturer of the Chevy Equinox, failed to disclose a deferred down payment and failed to provide the accurate total amount for the down payment.

Cortes seeks trial by jury, damages, rescission of the purchase contract, restitution of all monies expended, interest, equitable and injunctive relief, attorney fees, costs of suit and all further relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Kasra Sadr of The Sadr Law Firm in San Diego.
