However, the mileage was too high for that, I think, since I think that the limit is 50K miles. >warranty? >non that I'm aware of. > Ok, car was out of warranty, by Saab, then (mileage). If I assume that the car was represented in good condition by the dealer, you *might* have a cause .... However the general terms of sale of a used car is "as is" and "dealer makes no statement as to condition, and is not responsible for same...." You'd probably have to prove that they *knew* about this before hand, and then deliberately misrepresented the car.... IF you can tie this into accident damage, or flood damage, or any other such thing covered by the used car laws in your state, you might have something there. Your best bet is to go see a lawyer, who will tell you whatever he can. You can get an initial consultation for free.
