    Dealer sold me a wrecked Subaru

    I have wanted a Subaur for a long time.
    I recently bought a used one still under warrenty. I was told it was used only by a Subaru rep and had been serviced and everything was ok and they had kept is serviced for the rep.

    They also gave me a carfax but now I find out it was not the true carfax but the one any person can get for free that carfax gives some history on and the it does says it was not salvaged.

    Now I find that is has been wrecked. I called the dealer at Grayson in Knoxville and they have tried to tell me it was only minor.

    I was told the car was only driven by a Subaru rep.
    Now we have taken it to a local body shop and found that it has been in a worse wreck than what the store manager told me after I found out it was wrecked.

    He was suppose to call the rep that drove it and get the history and details on what extent it was .

    So today I find out that the complete panel on the passenger side was replaced.
    It was not obvious to someone inexperienced .
    Now I just don't know what to do but cry.
    I paid cash and don't have that type of money to shell out again.

    Please anyone can you offer advice?

    If you specifically asked if the vehicle was in any kind of accident then you have recourse, especially if the car was given a "salvage" or "repaired" title. The lingo varies from state to state.
    Check your local state laws for this type of event. You did not list your area, maybe someone in the same state can help you.
