I bought a used car in mid September with an extended warranty. The car is a 2004. Within 2 weeks of having the car, it started to act up. I called the dealer and he told me to take it to his shop. The car sat there for 2 weeks until I called to see what was going on. The man told me he was unable to work on my manual transmission. I then took it to a different shop where they told me I needed a new transmission. My extended warranty only covered $1000 of this. I called the dealer again and told him what was going on. He had nothing to say besides "its your car now!" After another 2 weeks went by, my car started to act funny again. Last night the oil gage dropped, it started to smoke and lost all power while I was on the interstate. I am now unable to drive the car at all. What can i do???
You might want to do some research on the Virginia Lemon Law for used cars. The DMV has information on its website for used cars. http://www.dmv.org/va-virginia/automotive-law/lemon-law.php
Consider reaching out to an attorney in your area that handles lemon law cases.
