David,It does sound like the dealer knew or was aware of this 'repair' to the vehicle, which means that prior to selling it to you, the dealer had to inform you of all the known defects. Failure to do so could violate state law. As a consequence consider informing the dealer that you will be filing a grievance against them with your state's Attorney General's office, specifically their consumer protection division and request that the state agency investigate your claim. Most of the time the dealers simply do not want the hassle and the potential additional expense from the state to deal with the allegations. That is the easiest approach to get them to agree to return the money and take the vehicle back from you even after it was transferred under your name. Hope that helps.
