I recently bought a 1998 Isuzu rodeo in RI from a private

I recently bought a 1998 Isuzu rodeo in RI from a private seller in March. The inspection sticker was only a year old and form showed 100% passing. No major defects disclosed. Drove ok.Yesterday my car died going down highway. Seller had "fixed" a fuel line using runner tubing!! So of course it blew after a month as has is corrosive.Mechanic then sees the whole back of the truck suspension is rotted out. Cannot be fixed. Unsafe to drive. Back end ready to fall off! NO WAY that truck could have passed inspection a year ago. So much rot and damage, it would have taken years. Mechanic says it happens a lot where inspection places are bribed or a friend passes a bad car.I now am out $1000 for truck, plus towing bill, registration etc. And I have no car to go to work.Do I have any recourse with seller or inspection station? Lemon law? Reporting inspection?

I bought a car March 5th, had some issues with it and tried to return in on the 8th. was advised I couldn't by the dealer. They took it for 14 days to do repairs. I got it back and still had issues. Waited for parts 12 days.(not able to drive the car). I took it back in for repairs and broke down on the way home. As of today, they've had the car 46 days, 60 days in total. All I've wanted from day 3 is to get my money back. I'll be paying a 2nd payment this week and haven't been able to drive this car. I've also not received license plates for the vehicle either.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Arizona 2006 BMWJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I've filled a complaint with Attorney General. No word backJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Also tried a lemon law lawyer, 12 days ago. Just finally told me last night that they deal with newer car issues only. The contract I signed with them and got copies of do not have any signatures from them.

We just purchased a new rv in AL. We've pd our first payment

We just purchased a new rv in AL. We've pd our first payment and Just took it out to camp for the first time. The a/c wasn't properly wired. In fact loose wires not even connected which also go to the gas furnace. The dealer sent us emails with different instructions to try to assist but in doing so we discovered a wire in our rv is attached to something different in the wall. They are wanting to subcontract the repair to a company that will come to our house. This was a factory defect. We fear this in our safety and asked them to exchange campers. They said they couldnt. Help!JA: What state is this in? And how old is the RV?Customer: Brand new AlabamaJA: Have you contacted the manufacturer?Customer: Yes. They told us to go through dealer.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The dealer sent us a picture of an rv like ours wired correctly. That's when we discovered wire needed for thermostat/ gas furnace was connected through the wall. Is this not a huge safety defect? Also, the owner of dealer has a brother with huge law firms and they made us sign arbitration
