IS NO FULL DISCLOSURE, BEING TRUSTWORTHY?

IS NO FULL DISCLOSURE, BEING TRUSTWORTHY? When I purchased the car from Coast Motor Company 708 17th Street E, Palmetto, FL 34221; https://www.coastmotorco.com Sales: (941) 220-**** I was told by Mr. Tyler “It needs nothing except for a new owner to pop off the Targa roof panel and enjoy her on a nice sunny day.” Well, it turns out that was not a truthful statement! I asked to inspect the car. Tyler said he did not have a lift. Later I find the car had no mufflers, which are required for registration in my state of Maryland, and the front expensive Bilstein shocks was leaking. I said lets go to a restaurant and discuss the car: •The panel lights were too dim to see, no disclosure. •In his advertisement he stated the air condition was “ice cold”. NO, cool is not “ice cold”. I had the compressor and clutch replaced and converted to the mandated refrigerant (had the old refrigerant) - no disclosure. Cost $1,995. •Also driving the car to a friends house for drop off, I ran out of gas 2 times, the fuel gauge did not work. Had to install a fuel pump kit = $322 •So far corrective costs have been $2317. •Have yet to fix the leaking shock. I was very excited to purchase the car but my experience turned out very poorly. I wrote to Mr. Tyler to express my circumstances in hopes he would help remedy the situation – I received a defensive response which was insufficient and inadequate. Basic Principles of the BBB Code 1.1 The primary responsibility for truthful and non-deceptive advertising rests with the advertiser. Advertisers should be prepared to substantiate any objective claims or offers made before publication or broadcast. Upon request, they should present such substantiation promptly to the advertising medium or BBB. 1.2 Advertisements which are untrue, misleading, deceptive, fraudulent, falsely disparaging of competitors, or insincere offers to sell, shall not be used. 1.3 An advertisement as a whole may be misleading by implication, although every sentence separately considered may be literally true. 1.4 Misrepresentation may result not only from direct statements, but by omitting or obscuring a material fact.
