OMVIC and Returning a Vehicle
Now it goes more shady. The dealership disclosed him a "severe damaged accident" in the carproof. however he downplay it saying it was a front bumper. When I paid for a new carproof, it shows a $17,000 accident about 1000 kms before he bought it and estimate "total loss". Actual repair was $14,000. the carfax he displayed to him at time of purchase was pulled about 3 months before selling date and did not include any of the amounts listed above. Out of OMVIC regulations it seems this website may be returnable within 90 days due to this reason. Is it strong enough?
Now to the bigger issue. Dealer offered to pay $1000 towards the repair and the rest on him. He would do it with his mechanic to provide repair at "cost". I advised my friend to send me his bill of sale to analyze it if disclosures were made there as well as find any other irregularity he made have been ripped off on. However, bill of sale is in the car, and the car at the seller's mechanic. When he went to find it, papers are gone! so he doesn't have a bill of sale. He is been asking the dealer several times and he doesn't respond or keep pushing it.
To make things more complicated he is already fixing the car without providing an actual estimate of the repair cost, just saying "it shouldn't be more than 500- 1000 or so" on top of what he puts. We do not know what engine he is putting in (if super use or what) and through omvic regulations it seems mechanics have to provide with an estimate before fixing the car. Should we pay the repair?? can we pay and try to return the car after?
We are less than a week ago from the 90 days, and we have no bill of sale to make the omvic complaint, I just read their regulations and we needed to send a registered mail letter first which hasn't happened yet. Any clue how can we play this ?
Thanks in advance for any help.
