We just purchased a used car in Missouri from a dealership. Within a couple hours after turning the car on, the light that says airbag failure is on. Is this something that the dealership should have disclosed or that they should have known based on the inspection laws in Missouri?

In order for a money judgment to have been entered against you the plaintiff must have gotten you served. Go to the court and ask to view the return of service. It could be that a family member of yours over age 15 was served and that service was therefore valid.
