If it was a Dealer you might have a route, but a private party it is buyer beware, about the only thing that has many teeth in it is the odometer but if it is over 100K then that goes away. Of course you could talk with an attorney, most will give you a half hour counsel at no charge. HTH

Buyer beware, should have had it checked out.
