I know Minnesota has a Lemon law for dealers but I bought a used car yesterday from a private party. I brought my brother along to make sure that I was making a sound purchase. We both test drove the car, which seemed to run ok, but the clutch was diffiicult to push in. I chalked this up to every manual shifting car being a little bit different. Less than 8 hours later the clutch went out, it is now in the shop and I am told that not only was the clutch bad and has been for a while, that there are other repairs that need to be done, so far totaling $500 and will probably go up as there is a transmission issue. We both specifically asked if there were any issues at which point the seller told me there were none. Even to the point of stating that he wished he could keep the car.
I have notified the seller who seems to not want to help in any way. Do I have any recourse at all?
