Am I covered under the Unfair and Deceptive Acts and Practices (UDAP) law for a false representations by a car dealer?

Question Details:

I purchased 1998 Blazer from a car lot. The dealer told me that the front seat was broken and I was unable to test drive it. He stated that he would fix it. Because I was unable to test drive the car, he promised that if anything was to go wrong with it in the next 2 months that was concerning a major mechanical issue, he would fix it. Just a week ago the transmission went out and now he is trying to say that he never said what he did; and that he is not going to fix it. I purchased the vehicle "as is" but I do have a witness to his statements. I'm a single mother of a 2 year-old and i also care for my mother. I can't afford this repair.
