My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: MN
I sold a RV to a private individual from 'out of state' (not MN), probably a VERY bad idea to begin with today. The person was very interested on the phone, asked me various questions, and I answered to 'best of my knowledge'. I even picked him up as courtesy from the airport, he gives me a cashier check that I deposited, signed my title etc. And then geeze to go over the RV, he took my whole entire day, and then one thing after the other he was unhappy, sometimes things like water is not coming out with pressure. I felt disturbed and wanted him to stay happy (I myself am a happy guy) took him to various RV dealerships to alleviate his concerns, and then boom he says that the transmission is not 6 speed. Now, to be frank, I checked from a dealer few days back if it was 6 speed and the dealer had told me yes it was and I communicated to this buyer. However that turns out like it is a 5 speed transmission. I know it is not my fault, this is ALL work for buyer that I have been as courtesy doing it, and now he is saying to fund him the money back.
I drove him to a motel (since he didn't keep the RV), and I told him that I am going to think about it all, and call you tomorrow because I have a big migraine, since I have travel plans for tomorrow and this is too much for me to take.
What are my options?
1. Ask him to take the RV because I can do nothing now. But if I do it, he could potentially cancel the cashier check next day. Though the money is showing in my account already.
2. Refund him the money and get on with my life. Though as if to not rub off on my injuries (I keep my things in top shape, and drive very carefully myself), but He, while test driving he drove it so fast and callously, and rammed one of the wheels into a sidewalk. I have a feeling that there is a steering pulsation since then.
I have a critical travel tomorrow, this man is acting weird, he has ruined it. But what do I do?
I know if it was a dealer (and I the buyer), he would not give a damn to my situation, but I want to be a good person, I dont want to become a hypocrite, but I also need to protect myself.
