Sincerely need some advise here.
I had recently bought a 2nd hand car from a dealer.
The background story:
-Dealer mentioned that he is helping his friend to sell the car, but the car is alr transferred to his company's name, hence it's not consignment.
During the discussion, the dealer told me that the car owner will give me 3 months warrenty for major parts (The dealer, the so called car owner and I were present.)
-Dealer agree to send the car a workshop for check before I buy the car.
- During the check, there's some issue w the car, and "the car dealer" agrees to bear the cost for it and void the 3months warrenty.
At that point of the I was not concerned about the 3 months warrenty as the car was alr under the dealer's name, I will be protected under the lemon law.
So what happened now (3weeks after I took over the car) is that there's issue w the engine and required a overhaul.
The dealer do not want to bear the responsibility and tweak his words saying that it's a consignment from the owner.
The cheque for the downpayment was payable to the dealer, and the Loan was also done by the dealer.
So my question is, if I bring this case to SCT, will I be protected under the lemon law and able to seek the damage from the dealer?
