Default bad car purchase... recourse?

Hey guys,

my sister bought this POS Suzuki aerio from a local dealer known for being crooks, they have F rating on most review sites as well as BBB. she bought the car late February and it has been a total POS since the day she got it and its had a lot of work done to it since she bought it.

the dealer replaced the transmission under their "warranty" but then told her that any other issues would be up to her to fix despite the 90day "warranty" they gave her on the car. trans was replaced in march and ever since then the car has overheated at least once a week if not more. she keeps topping off the coolant but its disappearing quickly. she has told the dealer many times about it overheating and they don't seem to care at all. now that shes out of warranty the car will not start or run at all and im pretty sure it has a blown head gasket, cracked head or even cracked sleeve by now.

where should she go from here? she doesn't want to keep paying on her loan on a dead car and cant afford fixing it.

Not to be a dick, but why the ruck did she buy from someplace with shit ratings? You aren't going to be able to do much except bitch and hope for the best. Let me know and I'll see what I can do for her.

before anyone says anything,

YES i know how to take care of a car and prevent certain issues from happening.

my sister on the other hand, thinks a car should go when you hit the gas and stop when you hit the brakes and everything else should be fine until she gets a new car.


Blonde... yes

she didnt know until after she bought it and started seeing what kind of people they were. she wanted to purchase the car all on her own so didnt consult anyone or research until after it was too late.

Google lemon laws. Not sure about time-frame and that type of stuff, but assuming she didn't do anything to cause any of these failures, she should have recourse. I think it's usually a certain number of things break within the first X length of owning, then they have to take it back. Might vary state to state though.

MO lemon laws dont cover used vehicles unfortunately.

Just tell them that's fine, my attorney will be down here if this isn't resolved promptly by Friday.

Let em know Mr. Epstein will be happy to take them to the ringer.

Doesn't surprise me one bit. MTS are a bunch of fucking cocks. They sell nothing but over priced junk ass auction cars. Growing up in Belton I am very aware of their reputation. I did buy a car from them, luckily it was a decent car at a decent price and after walking out the door I didn't have to deal with them after that.

Sorry your sister is getting jerked around by these asshats. It honestly surprises me that they are still in business.

She has no real recourse. Not paying the loan only fucks her and her credit, the bank doesn't care if the car is a pos and doesn't run they just want their payments. I assume she isn't financed through the best place considering the dealer, car, and the miles it probably has on it.

This.

It's already funded through their "banks", so she is pretty much locked in to the loan. Her only options are:

Pay it off
Fix it
Give it back, and have a repo on her credit

She signed paperwork that doesn't hold the dealership liable for any repair work outside of the mandatory warranties as stated at the time of the vehicle purchase. Usually 30 day, possibly a 15 day, limited power train warranty. You would be hard pressed to find an attorney to even try to get them to take it back, even if the vehicle has had problems. Once you sign on the dotted line at those places, the vehicle is out of the stated warranty, and its funded, you're essentially SOL.

Simple easy way out.... Full coverage ins, wreck that shit into a wall on a rainy day, will get loan paid off, and prob a check on top to cover some of the money shes lost in payments made. She doesnt even have to be driving, and report to ins csn be made later up to a 6 months later. In other words, you go crash car into wall, tow to a shop, call ins later she says she hit wall problem solved! Quote me If you want people I dont care I have never done this nor had full coverage ins, however know people that worked for!

You should run you're car into a wall so we don't have to listen to the stupid shit you say.
