interesting... youre dang lucky that the dealer gave your truck back. In CA, i believe its a 2 day period you have to be able to return a used car to the dealer, I might be wrong, but its something like that.

Like I said, I would never ever buy a modified car like that.

I personally think you made a stupid purchase buying that car. You are REALLY lucky the dealer was nice enough to give you yout truck and deposit back. I bet any other dealer woul dhave said "too bad about your luck buddy, I'm gonna sell your Ranger now and make some coin, sucka!"

When I bought my Cadillac, like EVERYTHING went wrong with it within the first 4 days I owned it. I took it back to the dealer and demanded my money back and did not want the car anymore. They refused, but agreed to repair everything. They spent over $2000 repairing it for me. That masked the problems for about 6 months until the headgasket and timing belt both went.

I sold the car for $1200 and I have not owned it for about 8 months now and I still owe $3000 on my loan. I got burned worse than you did.

I cant stress how lucky enough you were to be able to get your truck back. That Evo made me want to die a little inside when I saw you bought it.

If you're going to buy another Evo, make sure it is bone stock. Even if it just has a set of rims and tires on it but it's still stock, chances are it's been beaten to death jut as bad as yours was.

Buying used performance cars like that is taking a huge gamble. That's why buying cars from grannies and grandpas is the best. Always well maintained, low miles and never beat on.

its just common evo problems. the motors burn clutches easy with inexperienced drivers, so clean low mile evos will often have a bad clutch even if it was a mild driven dd

Maybe... it varies state to state, but there are lemon laws (even for used cars) as well as a certain period you have to return a car to the dealer for any problems not discovered before the sale. Long story short, the dealer MIGHT have been required to take the car back.

Needless to say, he was still lucky everything worked out. DO NOT BUY ANY MODDED RICERS! brand new, theyre great, but if they are used, its almost guaranteed that they have been abused.
