I signed a contract back in 2017 with jd byrider. Every year around winter time, I have to get the vehicle fixed. I was charged $14,000 for the vehicle. But even before I was able to take it off the lot it had to get repaired. Now every winter i have to get a new throttle body because the throttle light comes on and now the thermostat housing cracked because it over heated. I spent about $5-600 for the repairs every winter. I can not keep up with all the repairs every time it gets cold. I still owe about $6000 on the car. I tried to work something out with them because they also want me to pay $400 for payments every month. It is becoming to much on me. I am a single mother of 2 girls. I really do not know what to do at this point. I am ready to give the car up and take it from there but I do not want my wages to be garnished because I really do not make alot now.
I am changing the category to lemon law to get someone more expert in these situations, but you likely do not have a claim under Ohio's Lemon Law if the vehicle was used. You risk garnishment if you default on your agreement. You may want to have an attorney review your contract and advise you of your rights. Overall, it sounds like you got a bad deal and took on too big a loan. You may just have to lower your head and pay the thing off as quickly as possible.
This is all too common: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piT0GyDyfus. I wish you luck!

You may have rights if you purchased the car with a warranty since there are laws that require a dealership to repair a car within a reasonable amount of time or a reasonable number of attempts under a warranty.
You may also have rights if the dealership knew about the throttle body issue and lied or hid it from you. If you feel this is the case, then you would likely need to contact an experienced auto fraud attorney to review your documents and help you.
