Ohio code 1302 discusses the implied warranty of merchantability bit unfortunately the conspicuous use of the words "as is" void any such obligation.

http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/1302.27v1The only loophole to this is if the dealer violated the unfair and deceptive business practices act which does not allow a seller to actually misrepresent the condition of the car or engage in any other such misconduct. Unfortunately I could not find case law to the contrary.

For general information please seehttps://www.ohiobar.org/ForPublic/Resources/LawYouCanUse/Pages/LawYouCanUse-548.aspxIf the dealer is concerned about reputation they may be willing to allow a trade for a different car but that would need negotiated. This area of the law definitely needs more oversight as this is not an uncommon occurrence.
