Customer Question

I bought a used car that has no warranty, sold "as is" and is not covered under lemon law because of high mileage. I've had it for 2 weeks and already the transmission has to be replaced. I have not signed the title yet and the dealer refuses to fix it saying it's my fault. Is there anything I can do to get my money back or have him pay the repairs?

The only way to hold the dealer liable is to prove he knew of the defect and lied about it to sell it to you, but that is almost impossible to prove unless he put something in writing that you can get a copy of.
