I Brought a minivan that from a car dealer that they supposedly inspected and ran diagnostic test and gave me a check list where everything pasted within a couple of weeks i got on highway doing 60 mph and ran i ran into traffic and the van had uncontrollable shaking i had noticed a small leak coming from under the van so with that i paid for a another diagnostic test which revealed that my rack and pinions was leaking i needed rotors ,brakes, tires also i had a whining noise that was getting louder that was the power steering pump i replaced immediately they mechanic explained that they had to know at the time i purchaed it. then after replacing power steering pump ,tires ,rotors ,aaq1nd brakes i to get alternator ,battery they both went. I notice the car shakes alot the old tires were wore down uneven two tires in front were wore down on the inside.
so i decided to trade vehicles to get another vehicle this is when i found out it was a salvaged van before but i knew nothing no where on my papers is it listed and i wasnt told the van is worth nothing and i paid $6,000 cashier check also my sliding driver side passenger dont open
If the salvage title was on carfax, there is little you can do. That said, it's possible. These matters rise and fall on the paperwork, so you should take your paperwork to a lemon law lawyer who can review it and let you know the situation.
Connecticut law requires dealerships to inspect brakes and steering mechanisms andto ceritfy (in writing) to the buyer that the vehicle passed inspection. Dealerships are not permitted to sell vehicles with safety defects such as the ones that you describe.
As the prior answer stated, someone is going to have to review your documents to ascertain whether you have claims regarding the title. State law does require that this information be prominently disclosed.
You should consult with a lawyer handling auto dealer fraud and warranty claims.
