It is not completely clear, but it sounds like you had some concerns about the vehicle before you purchased it, you asked them to check it out, and they told you nothing was wrong. If so, then you would likely have a case under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act and Ohio Motor Vehicle Sales Rule, as well as a claim for fraud since it is likely that the cracked manifolds would have been obvious to the dealership. Did the vehicle come with any sort of warranty? If so, then the vehicle also...
If the title is still not in your name after 40 days, and you purchased the vehicle in Ohio, then you should be able to get your money back. In Ohio, a car dealer is required to deliver title to a motor vehicle to a consumer within 40 days of the sale of the vehicle to the consumer. And, where the car dealer fails to do so, the consumer has an unconditional right to rescind the transaction (i.e. make the dealer take the vehicle back and get their money back). However, most car dealers will...

I am sorry that your brother has put you into such a bad spot with your vehicle. In order to have a claim for fraud against your brother, you would need to prove that he misrepresented the vehicle to you, that you relied on his misrepresentations, that your reliance was reasonable, and that you were damaged. The problem I see for you here is that you knew of your brothers fraudulent ways, so it may be unlikely that your reliance was reasonable. Another issue you may want to consider is that...

Yes, if they said that they were selling you one vehicle and sold you another, then you can sue them. I have included some links below if you are planning to take the case to small claims court.

If the dealership told you that they were selling you a 2006 and sold you a 2005, then you likely have a claim for fraud, and possibly a claim under New Jersey's Consumer Law Statute. Additionally, federal law requires used car dealers to fill out and display a "Buyers Guide" Window Sticker on the window of any used vehicles that they sell before they offer them for sale. Used car dealers are required to give consumer buyers a copy of the "Buyers Guide" at the time of sale, too. If your...
Just because the vehicle was sold "as is" doesn't necessarily mean that you don't have any legal rights. In fact, it sounds like the dealer concealed some material defects about the vehicle from you. If the dealer lied to you or concealed material facts from you about the vehicle that they had a duty to disclose, the dealer knew or should have known the truth, you relied on the dealer, your reliance was reasonable, and you were damaged, then you may have a claim for fraud. Additionally,...
I am sorry about the situation you are in with your boyfriend’s father. If your boyfriend’s father lied to you about the condition of the vehicle and the lie cost you money, then you probably have a fraud claim. In order to prove your fraud claim, you are going to need to take the vehicle to a mechanic that you trust to find out what the problems are and how much it will cost to fix them. I think your first step of trying to work it out with him is a good idea. However, if you are unable to...
