If you bought the car "as is" then the best you can do is continue taking advantage of the free repairs. As long as the dealer did not actively deceive you about the condition of the car, "as is" means exactly what is sounds like.

Re: Used car

Generally, when a person buys a used vehicle on an "as is" basis, they assume all responsibility for the car, no matter what--that is even if the car is a piece of junk. That is why it is sold "as is" that is without any warranties or guarantees. As such, if things go wrong, generally, the buyer does not have much choice...

I hope this helps
