If this was the case you have a problem with the dealer, not GM. The problem GM has is they can't tell if you wrecked it or the dealer did, repaired it, and sold it to you fraudulently. I dont' know what the damage was, but it's not uncommon for small dents and scratches to be repaired. They SHOULD have revealed this to you, but probably don't have to legally. They can't trash the cars because of a dent, but they should discount them. I have a Volvo bought new with the same issue. The plastic front fascia bottom has apparently been repainted.. It's a minor thing and I suspect this happens at all brands. Otherwise the dealer was top notch. As long as it's not hard-hit wreck damage, it won't affect resale too much. I've sold a BMW with rear end damage repaired professionally and the buyer didn't care. It could well be the case of the buying dealer trying to lowball on the price using whatever excuse they could find. I guarantee you they won't be posting a sign on it saying "paint damaged car for sale".Report it
