Did you have a warranty? Most used car dealers will give you a 30day 3000K miles warranty. I'd stop in the shop and find out.

I don't recall a warranty, but the list of unsafe features in the vehicle is one I've never seen and I've been in the car business for almost 20 years.

If you were not given a warranty you may be stuck. Always have a vehicle looked over or checked out by a third party if you don't have experience evaluating a used vehicle yourself.

Thank you Bob, The issue was oil sludge in the engine which we couldn't see until we pulled the valve covers off. once the vehicle stalled out we knew something was wrong. I immediately contacted the seller.

Contact the seller again and if you don't get any response, legal action might be necessary.
