I am just about to start researching this debacle. Figured I'd post the situation here too. Bought a truck from a used car dealer in Massachusetts. I live in CT. Had my mechanic check it when I got home. He found several safety issues. The dealer said to register it and have an official inspection. I spoke with the dmv. They don't do safety inspections for vehicles under 18k lbs. Since the truck is used commercially, I'm required to have an annual safety inspection done. This is done through an independent and certified repair shop. I did not register it. I did have the safety inspection which resulted with a fail. I trailered the truck back to the dealership and he wouldn't honor report results. Told me I had to register it and get an official failed inspection. He said he would then contest it with the state registry. Yeah yeah yeah, he doesn't want to fix it, I get that. The truck has a 30 day warranty which has 10 days left. I will talk to the dmv again in the morning and see where that leads. I think part of the problem is that my state doesn't require safety inspections to register but I'm required to do annual inspections through the fmcsa, a federal institution, but is enforced by state dmv (d.o.t.) officers. And the inspections are done by third party repair shops. Ugh, this is going to get ugly. I foresee my attorney getting involved if the dealer doesn't work with me. Thoughts?
