Hi!Customerhere. I'll do my best to assist you.I can only provide general information, so a follow up consult with a private lawyer is recommended.
Thank you for your patience while I researched this for you.
Unfortunately, Oklahoma does not have a Lemon
Law that covers used cars. Please see: http://www.ok.gov/omvc/documents/Lemon%20Law%20Guide.pdf
However, there are 2 possible ways to recover, assuming the facts fit one of the options.
The first is if the car is under warranty; most car dealerships offer warranties, and if this is the case, and the warranty was purchased, the dealer would need to ensure that the car was repaired under the terms of the warranty, or they can be liable for breach of warranty (basically economic cost of having a third party repair the car)

The other avenue, which is more difficult, is for fraud - an intentional false representation of a material fact which the seller knew to be false and which the buyer (reasonably) relied on to his detriment. Representations generally involve direct and specific declarations. However, any statement intended to communicate a fact or create an impression, illusion, or belief may constitute a representation. A representation may include an answer to a question as well as an unprompted statement.
An example of a successful case is where a dealership represents that a used car had never been in an accident and that was a material factor in the buyers' decision to purchase the car (and it was later discovered that the car was in fact in a prior wreck); another example is when a dealer represents that a car can tow an object which in reality it cannot.
Additionally, for as is sales, unless the language clearly and conspicuously waives the implied warranty of merchantability, that warranty is not waived - this represents that the item can be used in the manner for which it is typically purchased. If this language is not waived in the contract, it is easier to prove than actual fraud.
I'm sorry if this is not the information you wished to hear; however I feel I would be doing you a disservice if I did not provide accurate information. As such, please don't rate negatively due to the content of the information, but rather on the accuracy of the information. Thank you kindly for your understanding. If you have any follow up questions, please do not hesitate to post here.
