Poulin v. Ford Motor Co

In Poulin v. Ford Motor Co., 147 Vt. 120, 513 A.2d 1168 (1986), a purchaser of an automobile sued both the dealer and the manufacturer because a representative of the manufacturer misrepresented that the specific model purchased was produced in very limited numbers so that its value would increase. The Court affirmed a jury verdict against both the dealer and manufacturer in response to various claims that plaintiff had failed to present the proof required by the statute, id. at 125-27, 513 A.2d at 1172-73, although the Court did not confront the precise claim made here.
