Civic 4-cyl

  • 123,746 miles
I am a unsuspecting consumer that bought a vehicle that was for sale without disclosure of the true condition including brand history. I purchase an unsafe car for my daughter and the second day the brake fail and the steering wheel stiffness. My daughter took it for a oil change my mechanic said it have a lot of problems oil leak, axle damage, suspension noise. I took it to have the muffler check my mechanic said the muffler had a rotten pipe and two donut gasket that need to replaced which I did. The code present P1259 - vtec solenoid and oxygen sensor. I requested the car fax and it said that it had three minor accidents, three owners, mileage inconsistency. My daughter said while driving the car the speed odometer only goes to sixty miles when speed up and it will not go any further. I never saw a title, sign a transfer form, or go down with him to the court house to get the sticker and transfer paper work. My daughter had to jump out of the car while parking the car. It started smoking like it was on fire. I informed [xxx] that the car was a junk and I wanted my money back. It has been thirteen days since I purchase the car and I have not got my money back. He made sure that the address where he is located was written wrong, the name of his business was incorrect, the VIN no. Was written incorrect, the odometer at the time of purchase was not documented on the buyers owner invoice. I purchase this car at a exxon gas station. I sent him a demand letter and I have not gotten any response. The car is parked infront of my home and my daughter cannot drive the car.
