Customer Question
on Feb 22 I bought...
on Feb 22 I bought a used car from a lot in Sewell NJ half way home the service engine soon light came on. I took it to Pepboys to be repaired. I was told that they could not repair it. Now I can't get it inspected and can't get it on the road. Bought 'as is'. Is there anything I can do?

I'm sorry to hear this; was a waiver signed regarding the car's ability to pass inspection?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
