Legal Question

Asked on: 6/03/13, 11:52 am

I purchased a car about a month ago "as is", however, since my friends bought a car from the same auto outlet they agreed to fix any immediate problems with the car. A few days after purchase the car had some mechanical problems was taken to the company's mechanic and returned in two days. Two days following that the car completely stopped working and and was returned to the mechanic shop who took it to an electrical shop where it has been for almost 3 weeks. The worker at the electrical shop today said that they have no idea what is wrong with the car and it may be "a considerable amount of time before the problem is even diagnosed, let alone fixed" Do I have any legal backing if I ask for a refund?

Did this "auto outlet" agree in writing or not.? If the latter, you're probably

without viable recourse other than to request a refund and hope that the

business will be willing to go beyond its verbal promise "to fix any immediate

problems with the car" and actually give you a full refund of your purchase price.

"Them that don't ask (usually) don't get"!
