What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CT
about 1.5 months ago i purchased a car off Ebay. i was described as having brand new parts including an engine, clutch, water pump, timing belt, and other things. the car was pictured as being in good condition with minimal rust. the item described was decribed as having no damage and in good running condition. my father went to go pick up the car for me the day the transaction went through. he is not a mechanic and knows little about cars. he paid the seller the full amount with a bank check and registered the car and drove it home. the car had a CEL on and said it was from the PCV valve needing to be replaced. he said that that was the only problem. after my dad returned home with the car i drove it. the engine idled extremely high for the first 5 hours or so of operation. after the first 5 hours of driving, the idle dropped to almost 0 and the car barely ran. the car has been sitting in my driveway since then. i took the car to a shop to find out what was wrong with it. they said that there is a blown head gasket, needs new piston rings, has a rusted exhaust system that needs replacing, clutch is slipping, and transmission needs work. there is also a lot of rust under the hood on the strut tower tops and undercarriage rust on the frames. the rust is so bad on the strut towers that they are deemed not safe for operation and an observer can see straight through them to the tires. the items description did not show any of these rust damages or make mention to them. the car is not even registered by me yet because it can not pass emissions and i am unable to obtain a title without passing emissions. is there any legal action i can take to get rid of this car and get my money back considering the item was not as pictured or described and has unspecified damages?
