I bought a LEMON -please help me
I live in Folsom CA. I checked for the cars on internet and found one car in Freemont which I am interested. I bought a used 1998 mercedes E320 from a used car dealer in Freemont CA(it is about 125 miles from my home). The milage on the car is around 116120. The next day I bought the car, the Check Engine light Popped up telling Check Engine Electronics. When I called the dealer about the check engine light, they just started ignoring me directing my call to a voice mail box. Then, I had taken this car to a certified Auto Appraiser telling that I want to sell the car.He had come out with the details about car telling that All the front side of the car is re-painted and all the screws are tightened for both sides of the Fenders and the driver side door screws are also are being tightened. As per his inference this car definetly met with some sort of accident, which is not reported to the carfax, but got it repaired and repainted. He apprised the car for the 40% of the price I bought the car the previous day. Even if I add another 20% of the dealers margin, I end up paying more than $3000 to $4000 than the real value. Feeling cheated, I just called my bank and asked to Stop the check payment. Then the dealership stared calling me and telling that is not the way that, I do the business etc..
It is true that I signed all the papers which they made me sign including as is clause. But my contention is either in the internet or Orally they didnot tell me Any Thing about the re-painting and re-tightning of the screws on the vehicle. I bought the vehicle basing on the CARFAX report which reports clean history. I also reported the same to the carfax.
I am asking them that I am not going to take the car and pay the money. I am asking them to take the car back and I faxed all the information to the dealership telling that I am going to return the vehicle and I am ready to return the vehicle where ever they wanted the vehicle to be shipped to.
