A fraud suit against an Indiana Nissan dealership is moving forward, according to Automotive News, in a case involving a dealership that allegedly lied to a customer about a used Ford F-250 having a warranty.

According to the complaint, L.T. Garrett contacted Lafayette Nissan in Lafayette, Indiana, about a 2008 Ford F-250 in April 2018. The salesperson he talked to informed Garrett that the F-250 had had its engine replaced and that this replacement engine was covered by a warranty, “issued by the engine manufacturer (Jasper Engines) and good for two years.”

Now the suit is moving forward after an appeals court reversed the judgement. an Aug. 11 opinion, the Court of Appeals said it will be up to a jury to determine whether Garrett was told verbally that the engine was under warranty and, if so, whether it was reasonable for him to rely on such a statement in opting to buy the F-250.

A lawyer for the dealership says more discovery will be needed before the suit heads to trial.
