I purchased a car a few days ago that I financed for $15000.  In the total it clearly states that there was a 150 safety inspection.  Leaving the dealership getting over 60 mph the car started shaking so bad it felt like the tire was coming off.  Once I parked it I could smell metal burning by the tire from the breaks.  Took it to a mechanic the next day he says breaks very bad.  The dealership said they cannot do anything because this was a cash car and there is no money in the deal for them to put the car in the shop.  Thing is I already paid for an inspection that said the breaks for 8 out of 10 good, telling me it was a faulty inspection.  Also, I already paid for it so how are they loosing money?  And isn't it illegal to charge someone for a service and not provide one?  Not only am I entitled to a safe vehicle I have 2 children and at any minute that car could kill us.  The other question I have is, if this is a cash car but I still financed it doesn't the bank require them to put the car through an inspection?
