Chris The Lawyer : Hi and welcome. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear.
Chris The Lawyer : if they inspected the car and found this defect, then they took the risk. Driving a car with a defect like this is pretty risky, and they should have been careful about use until this was repaired. If they signed saying they took this as is, then they do not have a claim against you but accepted the risk.
