I bought a used car from the car lot on 8/18/2013. I was assured repeatedly by the owner/salesman that the car was mechanically sound. He told me he drove it himself for several days and that there were no problems with the car. I bought the car and drove the 20 miles home. About 2 blocks from my house the car started to smoke badly from the engine compartment. I got it to my driveway where I parked it. One of the pulleys on the engine had seized up causing the car to start smoking and the serpantine belt to brake. I contacted the dealer at once and he asked for pictures. I sent him several pictures via text message and he told me he would contact me in the morning. The next day I heard nothing from him, I called around 11 a.m. and finally drove bake to his lot around noon. He said that he would try and make it right, but I would have to pay for towing back to his shop. He finally agreed to have his truck come pick it up and he would call me later in the day to set it up. He called that night and said that his truck could not get to it and that he would call me the next day. So now two days after having purchased the car he calls in the late afternoon to let me know that his truck could possible be there the next morning to pick it up. However his mechanic would not be available for about a week so it would have to sit at his lot until then. When I asked him who was going to pay for the repairs or what was going to be done to fix the car he had no real plan beside just saying we had to get it to his shop. When I said I did not feel comfortable waiting for his mechanic or confident in his mechanic because of the fact the car already broke down after his shop had it he became rude and hung up on me. I have had further contact with him since this happened.
