I am having a hard time sending this information to you. We bought a 1995 Buick Park Ave in October of 2012.At that time we were told that it has a crankshaft oil leak and that the three main pulley bearings also needed to be replaced. Other than these issues the car was great. We paid $1800.00 cash. We took it in to a reputable mechanic and found out that the engine was not the original and had been replaced with the wrong engine for that car. On June 18,2013 we had the car towed to Seaview Chevrolet. We were told basically the same thing including that the car was to dangerous to drive. We have only put maybe 300 miles on the car since it was bought. That alone is an exaggeration. The mechanics found that the crankshaft case had been worked on several times by the different colors of sealers used. The owner looked me straight in the eye and lied to me. Do we have any recourse?
It was an individual seller. He sold the car to my domestic partners brother who returned it for he felt he did not have the time to work on it. There was no warranty written or implied.
