Recently bought a 2011 bmw from a dealership in Illinois and they said the car was in great shape with no mechanical problems. All they said was it needed an alignment. We looked at the car when it was dark out because we drove 4 hours to see it so we didn’t see any problems until we left. We traded in my old car for this one. We did have a 30 day warranty that they said only covers the engine. Got the car checked out today and the engine needs to be replaced, the headlights are broke, the starter needs to be replaced, the steering mechanism is shot and needs to be replaced. We were never told any of this and they said the car was perfect with no problems.
What can you do? Well, you can ask the dealer to take it back and give you money. After the dealer stops laughing, you might conclude it was a pointless exercise.
After that happens, you have two options: (1) keep the car and shell out $$$ repairing it; or, (2) sue.
If you sue, you will need to have a knowledgeable lawyer.
