Boston, MA asked in Products Liability and Lemon Law for New York

Q: I purchased a used car form a used dealership how do I go about getting my money back?

I recently purchased a used car from a used car dealership for $11,400 and the transmission went 2 weeks later and at the time of purchase there was 125000 miles on it . There is a warranty on it but they aren't trying to pay for the expenses because they are trying to say I exceeded the 1000 warranty limit which I didn't also there telling me I can't get my money back and that there's a no refund policy which no one informed me of and there no where in the shop that says all sales final so how do I go about getting my money back?

A: You're not covered by the lemon law because over 125K miles and if the warranty was for only 1K in miles then you may have lost your rights there as well.

It will come down to what the contract / purchase documents say. Most likely this is a shady dealership that got you to sign some things that weren't in your best interest.

I would chalk this up as a bad bargain / life lesson to be more careful.

How much will it cost to get a new transmission?
