Legal Question

Asked on: 7/18/13, 1:24 pm

I had my car fixed at a repair shop and I pick it up Friday afternoon I drove the car less than 20 miles out together and I just spent 1500 dollars having repairs done from the shop in the last 2 weeks. One of the repairs wss to replace the water pump. In those 20 miles the car was making noises and started smoking and then it stalled and it stopped working I had a tow truck drivers pick it up and take it back to the shop. When I left on Friday the mechanic said that the car would be smoking because of the sludge was burning off on the thing that they fix now the repair guy saying that it was the head gaskit blew. Since I drove it less than 20 miles from picking it up on Friday afternoon and it broke on a Saturday morning are they not liable for any of the damage done to my car? I need to know if there's any legal grounds I can stand on? I can't afford another $2000 to make the car running again it is a 2003 S40 Volvo. If you have any advice would really like to know thank you very much.
