I purchased a used minivan (with an extended warrenty) from Nick's Auto Sales forr $3800.00. I paid for the van in cash and the dealer promised to do a fresh inspection and some repairs as the stickers were expiring in 2 months.




I had issues with the van as soon as I drove it off the lot, and had taken it to a local mechanic to check out, and it turns out that the van needs approximately $1500 worth of parts for it to pass inspection.



Nick's was going to put a fresh set of stickers on it, until they seen how much the van was going to cost them to repair. Now Nick's is refusing to order the parts, or returning my purchase price, saying we purchased the van "As Is", but I have an extended warrenty I did buy on top of the price of the van, thinking Nick's would honor it by repairing the van to be drivable.

The van needs an engine oil leak diagnosed, rubber door seals are leaking badly when it rains, (3 inches of water in the back cargo seat area, ) O2 sensors are bad making the van run like a deisel and stalling, the idler arms replaced as the van is dangerous to drive now. If the idler arm fails, the van will crash and wreck, possibly killing or injuring me, my family or others. The van hasn't been driven since after the independant mechanic checked it out.

I have all the warrenty paperwork, the purchase recipts, the extended warrenty, and the independant mechanic's diagnosis in writing. 

I would like a prompt refund of the money I paid for my van, $3721.17

Actually on the paperwork and on the window sticker, it plainly states there is a 1 month warrenty provided with the vehicle. And I even have the separate paperwork for the purchase of an extended warrenty, for 3 months, 3,000 miles. 

All paperwork is signed and dated by both parties.

AS IS....

AUTHOR: Tyg - ()

 AS IS means AS IS. I dont expect that they are going to give you anything as with ANY contract BOTH parties are bound by the terms and conditions. If in ANY part of that contract it states AS IS, then you dont have a leg to stand on. Its simple contract law, once you and they have signed its a done deal. In the future, make sure EVERYTHING you want done is completed BEFORE you sign the paperwork.

An expensive lesson for sure, but nothing you can really do about it. You can try your states AG but its doubtful  once the paperwork is submitted for review. Like I said contract law is pretty cut and dry. I would take a few mins and pour over that contract. NO CONTRACT is 100% in the favor of the company asking you to sign. There is ALWAYS an addendum or caviet that describes consumer rights.
