Good morning. I am sorry to hear about this. Was the vehicle sold "as is"? Was there anything in writing, to support and show his statement that the vehicle was in "great shape" as he stated?
Thank you for the reply. When a vehicle is sold as is, the buyer takes it in its current condition and the seller makes to representations, as to its performance, condition, warranty, etc. However, a seller can not misrepresent the truth, provide false statements or say and/or do things which a customer/buyer will rely on, that they know if not true. In this case, if the vehicle was "inspected" and you were lead to believe there were not issues with it but there were, you could have a basis to sue, for the fraud, misrepresentation and deceptive and unfair trade practices.
