Bellavia, Blatt & Crosset Files $250 Million Lawsuit against TrueCar
Mar 10 15
Bellavia, Blatt & Crosset has filed a $250 million mass action lawsuit against TrueCar. The lawsuit, filed on March 9, 2015 in federal court, claims TrueCar has engaged in deceptive business practices, by promising customers lower prices and quicker transactions on vehicle purchases at TrueCar-affiliated dealerships. Bellavia Blatt & Crosset said 117 dealerships nationwide - all of whom claim to have lost business to competing TrueCar-affiliated dealers - have signed on to the mass action lawsuit so far, although it expects that number to balloon to several hundred as the suit moves forward. TrueCar promotes a smoother car-buying experience by allowing users to search for the exact vehicle they want at the guaranteed price they want. Customers can then take the price guarantee to their local TrueCar-affiliated dealer and complete the buying process, effectively saving both time and money. Those dealers then pay $299 to TrueCar as a fee for the transaction. Bellavia, however, said the system doesn't work like that in practice, as TrueCar doesn't actually check with the dealer if a certain make and model in the preferred color is in stock, and that the low price advertised includes several rebates that customers have to qualify for, such as active-duty military discounts or recent college graduate discounts. TrueCar dismissed the lawsuit's allegations, saying in a written statement, it is aware that a complaint has been filed on behalf of a group of dealers who are not on the TrueCar program. It believes the complaint is without merit. It will vigorously defend the lawsuit and the business practices and it expects to be fully vindicated. This isn't the only lawsuit TrueCar will have to deal with though. Bellavia said it plans to file a second lawsuit against the company within the next month on behalf of 250 TrueCar-affiliated dealers, in order to get the company to - advertise a little more truthfully. No monetary settlement is expected to come from the injunctive relief lawsuit.
