My question involves personal property located in the State of: Michigan
I purchased a used vehicle from a used car dealership and after the fact found that the vehicle was unsafe to be on the road. After taking vehicle to a body shop for a minor repair they suggested that I have the vehicle checked by a mechanic for suspension and steering problems. I took the vehicle to a reputable repair shop and they inspected the vehicle and said that it was unsafe to be on the road because of worn out ball joints and other steering components. The repairs amounted to approximately $1,200. I called the salesman and told him of the problem and asked for the owner of the dealership to contact me. It has been 1 week and I have not heard from them. Now the brake light is on and the vehicle is leaking brake fluid. After inspecting the vehicle I found that a brake line has a hole in in from rubbing on a screw that was used to fasten a piece metal to patch a rust hole under the vehicle. Do I have any recourse?
