Your state may have a lemon law, which could give you some recourse. And if there was fraud involved (the seller lied), you have a civil claim. You might sue in small claims court if it's a relatively small amount, or hire a lawyer if it was a more expensive car.
Good luck!AnswerActually there are only 6 states which have Used Car Lemon Laws, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, and New York to be exact. Each of the mentioned states have different definitions of what actually qualifies as a "Lemon". You should visit the official DMV for more information and procedures if you live in one of the 6 mentioned States.
