Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.
Do you have any representations from the seller in writing regarding the condition of the car?
Thank you for the additional information. I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.Unfortunately, when you purchase a car as-is you are basically letting the seller off the hook for any maintenance problems which may exist at the time of the sale or may develop shortly after. Assuming the seller has not switched out equipment or rolled back the odometer, they have no liability to you for any problems with the vehicle once you drive it off the lot.That is why many people who buy an as-is vehicle will insist, before they buy, that it be inspected by their own mechanic.You can file a consumer complaint with the Mississippi state attorney general. They will investigate and take appropriate action.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
