i bought a 2000 Plymouth voyager with 121,000 on the van for 1,200 so the van had a lil creek to it when i turned so i took it to mides to got a oil change and get the van looked it to see what that noise was i though maybe tierod end you know nothing major i was wrong. The guy at mides came out and got my boyfriend ad told him they can't do the oil change because they can't lift it up with the boone cause the strut hub was not fixed right it had to be welded in the hold the weight of the van instead they took sheet metal and sheet metal screws and screw it in to the strut hub and i couldn't get it fixed the right way cause it was so rusted underneath the sheet metal the was nothing to weld the strut hub too. the guy at mides told my boyfriend and i if that would of went it could of flip the van or threw us in to incoming traffic so i took the van back now i any had the van for 2 days so i took the van back.

I told the dealer what mides told me and he said i should of did my homework on the van but since i have a 2 month old baby and a 8 and 9 year old he will give me back 900 dollar and my old car back but his keeping 300 dollars for tax and title. so i'm going a layer and suing him for the rest of my money and i'm calling to BBB.

You did well

AUTHOR: drock87 - (United States of America)

You did very well in this case.  My credibility here is that I sell cars for a living.  Granted, I work at a new car franchise and we choose not to sell cars in this price range because there is inherently something wrong with them and it is impossible to make someone happy AND make repairs on a car we might only be making a couple hundred dollars off of.

Even if the dealer had verbally lied to you during the negotiation, there is a reason you have to sign the "Warranty" sheet (commonly known in a dealership as an "FTC Label". This is a federal document that must be displayed on EVERY used vehicle and you MUST sign it when you buy a car. If you read the back, it states that all promises MUST be in writing as verbal promises are difficult to enforce.  Also, if you sign this and "As-Is---NO Warranty" is checked, that is it...the end.  You have NO case in court.

Most car dealers NEVER "take cars back" or let you return themk, especially if there is no reason for them to do so.  You are very fortunate for what happened in this case.  Chances are the dealer had it on the lot as a trade in until it could get to the auction.  You actually go a very honest dealer who sounds like he put up a battle with you. 

Finally, and I understand financial constraints, but it is a $900 car. It is VERY difficult to find a car for that price that is both safe and reliable.

   As far as I'm concerned,I think you got a pretty good deal.Most car dealers would not have been that good to you.Take it as a learning experience and move on.

  Your lawyer already TOLD you the lemon law does not apply to used cars in your state, so WHY are you clogging up the court system with that case? You will just lose like your lawyer told you.

BTW: Stop reproducing! You can't even write complete sentences so they world does need any more idiots running around like you.

They are right.

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

  You're lucky that you are only out $300.   They could have made you stick to the original deal. 

"  looked it to see what that noise was i though maybe tierod end you know nothing major i was wrong. "

   When you buy an old used car "as is" with no warranty, it's up to you to make sure that it is in acceptable condition.  That means you take it to your mechanic, who would probably spot major issues right away.    You took the lazy route and decided to pretend you knew something about mechanics.   You are very fortunate that the dealer did not make you pay the consequences. 

  They're not worried about your fake lawyer or lawsuit because you don't have a case.   They have a paper that you  signed that says you purchased the van "as is" with no warranty.  What do you have?
