TAMPA (WFLA) - Ever think about buying a used car? You might want to be very careful.
One of the most common complaints we receive at 8 On Your Side is from customers whose used cars died suddenly.
In Florida, many used vehicles are sold "As Is."
Mike Marrapese is stuck with one that doesn't run. He signed a contract agreeing to pay $13,000 for his van.
He can't afford to fix its problems and make payments. So what happens now?
And Lynn Adams just wanted a dependable vehicle. She paid for an "As Is" car. It died days later.
What are their options? Can a consumer lawyer help you?
