Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

If the vehicle was sold without any warranties, then you have limited rights of recourse. Basically, you could only sue for concealed or intentionally hidden defects. However, if the issues were open and could have been identified upon a reasonable inspection, then you would likely have a very difficult time prevailing in a civil claim against the seller.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
