I purchased a used truck last week from a marine in 29 Palms

Customer Question

I purchased a used truck last week from a marine in 29 Palms for $5000. He stated in his ad that it only needs spark plugs and the condition was good. Well I purchased it and it needs a new motor that will be $2800. I already put a new alternator in? Do I have any recourse? I still have the ad. Thanks, Glen.
JA: Sorry about that. I must have missed it. Could you tell me again?

Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, you can, if you can show and support that the truck was not in the same condition as advertised when you purchased it and the seller knew and misrepresented the condition of the truck, which you relied on when deciding to purchase it. A party can not misrepresent and engage in false advertising to induce someone to buy a truck and if they did, they could be sued and liable for damages and the cost of repair.
