Legal Question

Asked on: 8/30/13, 1:40 pm

My daughter and I would like to sue the car dealership that sold her a vehicle. She purchased it in April with a down payment and is making monthly payments. It is now August and she still has not been able to get plates for the car. The owner of the dealership has given her a temporary tag four times now and has told us they have sent the paper work to the DMV office numerous times. We called a title bond company in an effort to get the car put in her name and found out the vehicle is not in the name of the dealership or the two owners of the dealership, nor are they licensed and bonded in the state of Georgia to sell used cars. The title bond company issued the bond because my daughter’s name was in their system as a temporary owner somehow. With the bond and a police report to show the car was not stolen she headed to the DMV office. The agent issued her licenses plates and after a lengthy explanation of the problem she put the title in her name solely WITHOUT the dealership being listed on it for fear of them may not sign over the title after we report them to the state officials. My questions is do I have grounds to sue them to break the contract for payments to them and get the money back that we paid to the title bond company? Can I use for them to return the money we spent on the car and still keep the car? Which court would I use, magistrate, state etc?
