I bought a car in July of 05. He NEVER not once stated that the car had been in an accident. However, I do remember pointing out "minor" issues with the body of the car (things very noticable) He still never said it was wrecked but he did say that if I purchased the car at a higher cost (much higher) he could get that fixed (just front and rear bumper scuffs- very noticable) But I was'nt too concerned. The car seemed to be in great condition, not even 50,000 miles. . .very clean on the inside. And it was just what I was looking for in the right price range. I test drove it, and felt that it would be reliable. (I had an accident and had been without a car over a month - I was ready for a ride!) I looked some more and came back a few days later and purchased the car. A few days after that, I finally had the chance to clean and scrub the outside. Thats when I noticed EVERYTHING! this car looks as if it were T-Boned, and possibly totalled. But I didnt get a salvage title. I say totalled because, I noticed there were wasp nest inside the door panel (where the hinges are on driver and passenger side) Makes me wonder how long it had been parked. And there was a door that was shut so tightly as if it had'nt been open in a long time. Instead of me discribing every detail. . .Let me just say this, I know for a fact it was wrecked. Possibly severe.
My question is this. . .Is there some sort of law stating that a dealer (even if the car is used with no warranty) must tell buyer that car had been wrecked? Carfax found 12 records. (I dont know what they are) I dont have acredit card.
Please, is there anything I can do now before my car becomes junk?
