    Default Used Car Has Inspection Sticker for a Different Vehicle

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: new York

    - - - Updated - - -

    I was sold a truck was told its inspection was good and would pass inspection only to realize via the odometer reading on the current inspection sticker being 5000 miles ahead of the reading on the trucks odometer that the sticker is from another truck the seller owns and the truck will not pass inspection. What are my options? I need transportation and am worried ,due to bad ball joints and severely rusted suspension mounting points, to drive the truck. The seller refuses to return my calls and convinced my girlfriend whom actually purchased the truck to accept a receipt for 500 dollars to save on taxes even though she paid 1100 which I told her was foolish. Now its been nearly 5 weeks since we bought the truck and I noticed the sticker was false yesterday. Please help with any advice

    Photograph the phony sticker, get the truck fixed and properly inspected.

    Then your GF (not you) can sue the seller.

    So you bought an old piece of crap truck for a price it was worth. You discovered and $1100 truck needs work to pass inspection an you somehow think you should have been given a $3000 truck for the money instead? Replace the ball joints and get it inspected. Find a welder and ask if the mounts need reinforcing or not.

    When you pointed out to the seller that the vehicle had the wrong inspection sticker, and asked for them to provide the sticker that belongs to your vehicle, what did the seller tell you?
