Customer Question

I purchased a vehicle 3 weeks ago. It came with a 90 day warranty. From the outset we had a problem with the transmission but after having it checked by Mercedes they gave it a clean bill of health. I drove to Houston and as I arrived the transmission failed. The Torque convertor and other parts have broken. The dealer I bought it from said that the insurance company he deals with says it was a pre-existing condition therefore they will not cover it. Dealer not willing to help. Can I sue?
