'Caveat emptor'... it is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the product is fit for his/her purpose and is free of defects. If you not a retailer but just a private seller you are not bound by the normal sales of goods laws. If the buyer has found problems or faults post sale then the responsibility lies entirely with them for not having carried out a thorough due diligence inspection or test prior to purchase. If there were faults on the car and you were asked specifically about them but mislead the purchaser by lying then he/she may have grounds to seek redress but only through legal means. When goods are sold as pre-owned, second hand, or 'sold as seen' then it is the buyers responsibility to carry out all checks to their satisfaction prior to purchase. If faults are discovered prior to purchase then these would be used to negotiate a better, lower price. You have no responsibility or obligation once the sale has been completed unless you offered, in writing, a guarantee or an indemnity from fault for a given period after purchase.

I was looking at buying a 2002 lancer the only problem is that they are saying it needs a solenoid for the transmission.

buyer be ware of sellers comments as to the fault
have them take you to autozone or some other service that can read the fault codes and find out exactly what is the solenoid/servo that is the problem
Advice is to pay the absolute minimum as you will have to pay for the repairs or walk on by to a better deal

We have a 2001 Buick Lesabre. We just bought it 3 days ago. The day after we bought it, it made a clunking noise from below and the engine light came on. It stopped moving. The tranny fluid seems find...

I would call the buyer to get his mechanics # to see if this has been diagnosed before. It may be you bought a lemon. If the buyer will not give this info to you then most likely you were sold something that was too expensive for them to fix. Even so your only choice is to have a shop inspect this and then fix it yourself if you choose to.

Tires system service soon

Only owned it 2 weeks? As an auto dealer, if I would have sold it the buyer would have come back complaining and I would have fixed it, warranty or not! Go back to the person who sold it to you!!!
