You mean there are still buyers out there who don’t know that some dealers are a little sleazy ? I consider all dealers to be a little sleazy (either on purpose or by being uninformed), until proven otherwise.
I take that attitude also. If you take a look at buyer protection laws…they weren’t just arbitrary written for the sake of it. They were ALL written to address a problem at the time. Personally I think we may have gone overboard in some areas…and no where near enough in others. I know I wouldn’t have bought that vehicle. But if the dealer had any morality at all…he/she wouldn’t be trying to unload it. They probably made a mistake buying it and now want to get rid of it…and they don’t care one bit if the vehicle is safe.
The PA law did say that it the new owner only has 72 hours to determine if the vehicle is road worthy. If not then too bad…you’re stuck with it.
