It depends. Did you buy the car "as is" or was there a warranty implied? Does your state have a used car lemon law?

If you bought the car with a warranty, then you probably would have a chance in small claims court to get your money back. If you bought it "as is", you're out of luck. Did you have a written "bill of sale" when you completed the deal? This is where the warranty or as is would have been listed.

Find out what car dealers don't want you to know at

The Advantage in buying a used car from a dealer is that he "Must" do and check many systems on the used cars. They really have no interest in selling cars with problems. As far as dealing with a "private party" It is only allowed to sell a car "as is" in California for parts only. Also the seller is responsible for smogging the car, not the new owner.There is no protection on a private party transaction. For one thing the problem could have been the new owners fault, as the car was running when you purchased it?. In the future when buying a used car, it is well worth the $50-100 to have the car checked out by a Mechanic (or CSAA offers this service for their Membership) before handing over hard earned cash.
