Q: I am an international student and bought an used car in Jan 8 convinced by the fact that the Carfax was clean.
But very soon it presented overheating problems. On Jan 17, 9 days after the purchase, I took it for an oil exchange at Grease Monkeys, where they made the following comments on the invoice:
- COOLANT SYSTEM LEAK
- ENGINE OIL LEAK
- HEAD GASKET LEAKING
Which indicates I was fooled by the dealership.
So, is there a law ground to sue the dealer for this bad faith?
Thank you very much.
While this is not my area of expertise, I would check into the state's lemon laws. If you purchased the vehicle from a dealer you might be able to return it or have them fix some of the issues. I recommend checking the colorado bar's website under the licensed lawyer tool to look for attorneys that do lemon law. Good luck.
