I bought a car for $3000 plus taxes etc from a used car dealership on Capital Blvd in Raleigh (initials BM or ASM!). I put $1000 down, and have paid about another $750 since I purchased the car on 6/2 of this year. Now the motor is blown, and they say I will have to pay $1400 to fix it. the car was leaking oil from the beginning. Does anyone have any advice for me. How does the lemon law work her in NC. Thank you.

I don't think that the Lemon Law applies to used cars. Only cars under factory warranty.

Default Buyer beware

If you purchased a used car without having it inspected by a qualified mechanic, and the seller did not imply or offer a warranty on the purchase, there isn't much you can do. When looking at cars sold "as is," it is very important to have a pre-purchase inspection done by your own chosen mechanic. A $50 inspection could save you several hundred in repairs when ruling out cars that would be a very bad investment. If the seller won't allow you to have it inspected, or only lets you have an inspection done by their mechanic, that's a big red flag that you might want to walk away. Sorry about your luck on this one.
