My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: CA
Last Saturday I bought a used 2005 vehicle from a private party.
I checked that it had current registration paid (renewal is in 01/2020). But I didn't know I also needed a smog certificate.
All I received was the title, bill of sale, and the current registration.
He drove the car to the bank parking lot so I figured it was legally drive-able.
We only communicated through text, so I have extensive records. He agreed to a 40 second video saying he is selling the car to me. Paid cashier's check from my bank.
When I drove it off, I immediately noticed the check engine light was on. I don't know how I didn't see this during the test drive. I took it to a shop on Tuesday which notified me it can't pass smog with the check engine light on.
What do you suggest?
