Can you verify, this was in NY?
What year is the car?
The "lemon law" is not going to help here. In NY, the Used Car Lemon Law covers any car that: was purchased, leased or transferred after the earlier of 18,000 miles or two years from original delivery; AND. was purchased or leased from a New York dealer;Since the car is over 2 years old the lemon law will not apply
Now....if you can prove this person lied to you...say, for example, they knew the transmission was broken or about to break, and claimed otherwise? That would be a basis to sue them. But not under the lemon law. YOu would simply sue them for failure to negotiate in good faith, as required under contract law
