There are different parts of the Massachusetts motor vehicle regulations and Lemon Laws that can protect you or provide recourse if you purchased your car from a private party seller. A private party seller is a non-licensed dealer who sells less than 4 cars in a 12-month period.
You must be able to demonstrate that the car has a defect. You may want to bring it to be checked out by a trusted mechanic before you buy it.
If a private party seller refuses to cancel the contract within 30 days of the sale, consult with an attorney to determine whether to pursue the matter in court. Lemon Law arbitration is not available for private party sales.
