If the car that you recently purchased from a dealership in Charleston is already having problems, you may justly wonder how a dealer could sale you such a vehicle in the first place.

Yet simply because a problem is known about does not mean that it will stop affecting people. Even after an issue is made public, the opportunity may exist for those who are affected to seek legal action.
