I purchased a used pickup at Claremont Ford and I did everything wrong. The result was that I signed an "as is" sales agreement - really dumb to do of course. The engine light was blinking by the time I got home and I was told by their service department it would need thousands of dollars of work before it would be OK to drive and pass inspection. So on the one side, I own this -- I signed the agreement -- but on the other I was taken by the sense that they were good people and would want to do the fair thing. What I asked them to do was discount the repairs or take the vehicle back for an alternative, but all they did was try to leverage the situation into selling me a new vehicle. As the situation unfolded, they bullied me and lied to me. So again, it all goes back to me being stupid, but after I acknowledged that they could have done a lot more to help me solve the problem. Instead I bought a vehicle that was literally not drivable or inspect-able, and once I was off the lot t was my problem and they had not interest in trying to make things right.
