How to properly buy or sell a used car

The recent news of the 19-year-old who sold a 1993 Nissan Pathfinder to the suspect in the Times Square bomb threat has sparked some questions about the best way to sell a used car.The student posted the ad on Craigslist and received $1,300 cash for it from Faisal Shahzad, but there wasn’t any paperwork between seller and buyer, so there was no record of the transaction.

Posted July 9, 2017 02:57 pm

Making lemonade from lemons can be a tall order when the lemon is a new car. The pride of new car ownership can deflate quickly when one realizes that the shiny new vehicle in their driveway is in fact a dud.
Some are surprised to find that their car manufacturer’s warranty does not do enough to quickly resolve repair issues. Most warranties do not designate a maximum time period for the completion of repairs for manufacturing defects. They also do not specify that the company should buy a defective vehicle back within a time period. For that reason states have enacted lemon laws. Your Better Business Bureau has the following explanation of the law as it exists in the State of Kansas.
What’s a lemon?
