Vine Grove, KY asked in Contracts, Products Liability and Lemon Law for Kentucky

Q: Retrieving money due to non disclosure of our vehicle having a rebuilt salvage title.

In March we purchased a vehicle from a local buy here pay here, we were told lies about how a woman had owned it for years and just wanted something new. The day after I received title in mail, the passenger tire flew off due to three of six wheel studs snapping due to being turned to tight. The dealer told us they just changed that tire the day we stopped in to look at it, but we paid in full and as is. Once receiving the title, we were furious, bc we would not have purchased the vehicle being that we have 5 kids, the youngest being just 1. We paid for a Vin check through Experian where we found out they had car since 10/2019. We were never told of wreck or salvage or rebuilt title. How can we go about this legally when the Vin check stated over $7,000 worth of damage was done but no accident was ever reported to any dmw nation wide?
