What responsibility does a car lot have when a car they sell has major mechanical problems 2 weeks after selling and there is an "implied warranty"?
Question Details: The engine blew. The cost of the vehicle was $2300; the repairs will cost $2800. What legal rights do we have?
Assuming you bought the used vehicle with a warranty, then most likely the warranty may apply. If the seller of the vehicle knew about engine issues with the vehicle that you bought before the sale and did not advise you of the issues before the sale, then you have legal recourse for the seller paying for the vehicle's repairs.
I suggest that you first meet with the dealership's manager as to what recourse if any the dealership is willing to make with your damaged car.
