You buy a car fot $3700. Its used.

You offert he person $200 extra to hold it so u can get money together on the 18th

A week later (the 7th) u have the money and ask to pick up. The person you are buying from has had a family emergancy and hasnt gotten to clean the car out %100

They left a hitch and handicapped handcontrols in the car.

You NEVER drove the car, never looked under the hood, never asked questions other then when was the last oil change and does the heat work. But the seller cleans car out and says u can pick up.

As is where is no warrenty no guarantee expressed or implied on ALL paperwork.

Fastfoward to today: you go to get the car inspected on the last day of a 10day tag and it fails.

Would you then go back to the seller and demand money back?! The car is an '04 and when we parked it it was FINE. We had it inspected in MAY and tore off the sticker cause we planned on parking it from dec to may and didnt want it stollen etc.

The family that got it said they want half the money back to fix an issue but wont tellus what issue, or wants % 100 back and us to take the car back.

They have had it since the 7th and never said a word!

Thwy said I shouldnt delete them on FB cause they know where I live and said they will take us to court.

Sorry but the as is where is no warrantee on ALL papers protects us...... right???

 Let them take you to court. Most, if not all, person-to-person car sales are "as is" condition unless otherwise implied. It is on the buyer to tell the seller that the sale will be considered complete only if the car passes an inspection. You will win.

Ya like I said it passed in may we took it off the road in december only because we got a great deal on another car. It wasnt even up for sale when they asked about it.

Your fault for not having it inspected first. As is sale comes with no warranty. Unless you can prove that the seller promised it would pass, you're sol.

Yeah, I didn't read it correctly. It's been a long day. You don't owe them anything.
