Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.

Unfortunately, if a commercial truck is sold in "as is" condition without any warranty, then, the buyer would be fully liable for any repairs and repair costs and unfortunately, there would not be any legal basis to rescind the truck finance agreement / loan and if the dealer is offering to help with the costs of the truck repair as a good will gesture, it would be a good idea to utilize that opportunity, since the dealer is not legally obligated to offer any type of assistance when it comes to repairs for a used truck that is sold in "as is" condition.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
