Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
A purchase of a used vehicle is deemed as is unless you received a written warranty to the contract of warranty to the contrary. Thus, when you buy a rebuilt vehicle if that was disclosed to you then you bought assuming the risk of hidden defects. If they gave you a certified warranty, then you could seek to sue in small claims for the cost of the damage, but you have to prove the seller knew or should have known of the defect when they sold it to you.

You have to prove that the dealer knew on 3-3-18 about the airbag problem before he sold you the car for you to claim breach of warranty of merchantability or breach of the warranty of good faith.
