Yes, the Bill of Sale shows sold "AS IS"
So by her paying to have it towed and paying the diagnostic for us to find out it needs a new engine, does that make any difference with the "implied warranty"? Also, the link you sent me about the implied warranties, those are good on private sellers, or just retailers(aka dealership)?
Okay, one last little thing (and I appreciate the prompt responses). If it gets to court, what should our main argument be (the fraud from her not disclosing it was in an accident and we have proof that it was), the implied warranty, or should we make a case for both? And i have also heard of theft by deception, would that be something that applies to this case?
Ok... so would I have grounds to try something criminally against her using the theft by deception? Because I have a feeling this would probably scare her in to settling the case outside of court.
