A: Check your contract. If you purchased the car "as is" and no affirmative misrepresentations about the car were made, you are likely out of luck. If the dealer made affirmative misrepresentations about the quality of the car, you may have a cause of action under Ohio's Consumer Sales Practices Act (CSPA) or for fraud.
