Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi James - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, if the seller knows or should know of defects or problems with the vehicle that are not open and obvious, then there are grounds to sue for negligent or intentional misrepresentation to induce the buyer to purchase the vehicle.
If you do sue, you could ask the court to reverse the transaction OR ask the court to order the seller to cover the costs to repair these issues/problems.
However, if all or some of the issues are open and obvious, or something that you should have discovered, and if the vehicle was purchased without any warranty, then it could be that your claim would likely be reduced by any things you could have reasonably discovered prior to purchase.
IF the seller isn't willing to make a compromise or try to work things out, your next move likely should be to hire a lawyer to pursue damages or to reverse the transaction.
I can't take a phone call right now as I'm traveling.......but, I'm happy to continue here if you need anything further.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
