What is the name of your state? PA

I recently bought a used 1990 yamaha warrior atv. The person i bought it from said he had the engine recently rebuilt at a garage, which is one of the main reasons i bought it. 3 weeks after buying it and hardly driving it, the engine blew. I took it to a repair shop and the guy said the engine was not rebuilt and the cost to repair it is $900. Do i have a valid case to take to small claims court for reimbursement for repairs, especially since the work he said was done never was?

If I knew the engine was going to blow I would not have bought it. The seller said the engine was rebuilt, so I had no reason to call the shop that "did" the work to ask them if they had infact rebuilt the engine.

In that case, I have some really nice beachfront property in Arizona for sale. :D

Wow.....I hope you're not being serious *smh*. You said that like people don't lie.

Anywho....you're about to learn an expensive lesson. Do a search on "caveat emptor".
