he sold me a bad car
I am sorry to hear of your inconvenience with the vehicle you just purchased. If there was a written purchase agreement, consult that document first to see if there were provisions or disclaimers about warranties. If not, the potential claims you might have about warranties, nondisclosures, fraud, misrepresentation, etc., will likely hinge on definite assurances that the seller made to you verbally. Either way, if the seller will not cooperate in addressing this situation to your satisfaction, you will likely need to consult briefly with a contracts, commercial or consumer law attorney to better determine what if any civil claims you might have against the seller. Use Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" feature if needed, in addition to any local contacts you might have among lawyers in these legal practice areas. Happy holidays to you and yours.
You fail to state whether the car was new or used, under warranty or not, and any terms of "as is" in the contract.
All these details are relevant; none are provided.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Those seeking such a relationship are directed to the contact form on my website.
