Can you help with problems with a dealership after purchase of a car?

Asked by Jul 22, 2015 at 05:53 AM about the 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S 350 4MATIC BlueTEC

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I purchased a car from a Cargurus dealership about 5 weeks ago. Since then I have had
to spend over $7500 in repairs to the car. The car is 2 years old and cost $52000. after
taxes. These repairs are for items that were covered up by the dealership but needed to
be fixed or the car would not be driveable.  The dealership says that they are not
responsible. Is there anything that this website can do to help me?

Isn't owning a used Mercedes fun? Nothing can be done here as this site just advertises cars for sale. CarGurus does not sell cars. Did you buy an extended warranty with this car? If not you should have. Also, buying this kind of car without warranties from a dealer other than a Mercedes dealer is a crap shoot. Perhaps consult an attorney? Best of luck with it.

Bob is right, buying a used car is usually As-Is unless you purchase a warranty. That's why I always suggest getting PPI before purchase. Since you already spent the money to get it in tip-top shape, consider it a learning experience and enjoy driving it. MB's do cost more to maintain than other brands, like some domestics.
