I Purchased a 2008 Land Rover with 98,000 Miles for 9,700$ at a pawnshop I thought I was getting a deal. I paid for a mechanic which lift he vehicle and he saw nothing wrong. Week later, Thurs feb 8 check engine light comes on I thought it was something minor. Another mechanic told
Me the transmission is damage and the job going to cost 2550$ I feel the person that sold me the car new it. And I am so upset my wife was keep telling me to Go to a dealer but I thought I was getting a great deal what are my right!
Unfortunately, your wife is probably correct. You would have more rights if you had purchased from a dealership. Because you did not purchase the car from a dealership, the consumer protection laws applicable to a dealer do not apply here. This means that the lemon law is not applicable and that all you could do is sue the seller in court but you will have a hard time because you would need to prove some sort of affirmative misrepresentation.
