Contact the seller and tell him you want him to buy back the car
Good morning, The problem with that is I've already spent an easy $500 with registration, insurance upgrades, windshield sun shade, full inspection with oil change and air filter, etc. etc.
I'm a disabled Viet-nam vet and for the last 2 decades I've been driving an old Volvo. Having a new(er) hybrid car is a refief as I was always worried when I drove the old Volvo the 160 miles to the VA hospital. What I'm trying to say is.. I like the car.
He misled you and he had to have known there was no ESP on the vehicle. Sounds like the seller changed his mind after the contract was drawn up and removed the ESP. Happens all the time
That's exactly what happened. I talked to the finance manager at the dealership and he pulled the paperwork and confirmed that the original contract was voided and the new contract written up, minus the ESP.
While typing this the seller called me saying he is waiting for a call back from someone at the dealer. He made a point of making sure I kinew that if he has the paperwork (ESP contract), he must have a warranty.
He will most likely not want to make this right and I think I will end up in small claims court. I already see that he is trying to blame the car dealer. Playing chess and looking at possible results. If I file the claim against just the seller and he's able to convince the arbitrator the car dealer is at fault and closes the case and then if I file against the car dealer and another arbitrator says the car dealer has no responsibility and closes the case then I can't refile against either as small claims judgements are final.
This is why I wanted to file against both in a single case. This way, when the original buyer blames the dealer and the dealer says the buyer is wrong the arbitrator can then asign fault.
