I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
There are somethings that you can do but unfortunately New Jersey does not have a Lemon Law for used vehicles. So simply returning the vehicle is not an option.
BUT you can take a number of actions that may help you persuade the dealer to buy back the truck or get you reimbursed for the repairs:
1) If they did not provide the mandatory Warranty Notice (posted on the windshield) or the notice was incomplete you can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission for violating the Warranty Notice rules.
2) If you were sold an extended warranty that is not being honored you can file a complaint with the New Jesey Attorney General Office of Consumer Protection for fraud and unfair trade practices:
3) You can sue the dealership for fraud and unfair trade practices. If the amount is $3000.00 or less you can sue in small claims court without an attorney:
If it is more than $3,000.00 you will most likely need an attorney because the rules of court can get complicated. In which case you want a consumer protection attorney. This link can help you find a local attorney:
