Auto Complaint - Lemons are not just fruit
BROOKLAWN, NEW JERSEY -- I know I should have known better than to go to a friend to buy a car. I'm learning a very good lesson. To make a long story short. He's a buy here pay here. I first gave more than half down on a Pontiac. I was told I had in house warranty. Well, the very next day I started calling. The gas tank didn't work. The stearing was pulling to the right. The petal had to be pushed down to the floor with a squeal. No horn, no air, also as it was turned on it made a high squealing sound. Ok this went on for over 5 months. He wasn't in or he had another car his mechanic was working on. Or I had to take my daughter to the doctors. Always, something. Finaly I had enough. I really gotten scared when I was on the highway with my daughter by myself and the car staled. So I had it towed there. He agreed it was a hazzard and wasn't safe. Mind you I hadn't missed one payment. He gave me another one. Not as nice a Taurus and charged an extra thousand dollars. Again, the sticker said no Warranty and he told me again I had in house. Here's the kicker I only had this one for a week, paper tag still in it. He called to say theres no tax and the I can come get my old tags. I told him theres a problem with the fuel tank it keeps saying empty and dinging and the passanger window won't go up. When I got there for the old tags back. He said he had to take it to get it inspected. Well it FAILED. Now I'm supposedly liable for another hundred dollars to fix the inspection. Now, is this right? Do I have any rights? Even with no warranty shouldn't he at least be liable for a safe car?
