Customer Question
Bought a used car...

Bought a used car in Florida, I test drove the vehicle and saw there was check engine lights on, went back to dealership and said fix it and I’ll buy it. They cleared the codes with the computer, but never fixed it, told me it’s an o2 sensor which was a small fix. Bought the car, the finance manager showed me extended warranty coverage, which he said suspension would be covered. Signed the paperwork, bought the extended warranty and drove home, which the light came back on, brought to reliable mechanic it’s suspension issues and 1400.00 to fix. The finance company called me and asked and verified a bunch of questions and the. Asked me about the vehicle if there’s issues with it which i explained to them yes soon as I drove it off the lot I’m already dropping 1500.00 into it a

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Florida 2010

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

And the warranty they sold me doesn’t cover anything and there’s fine print that states cars with 100,000 miles or more which mine has 103,000 all warranty options other then basic engine/transmission is valid

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Do I have any legal standings to either void the contract, or ability to re negotiate with auto broker

You couldn't just "void" a contract - but you could sue them if they committed some type of fraud and/or lied to you about the status of the car.
