Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I bought the car from a nissan dealership in oklahoma last saturday 06-01-13, the car died on the highway on my way home, towed the car to a mechanic who said the engine was no good, that it knocked. Now the car starts but has a knocking sound. i called the dealership they are throwing as is clause at me. Since the car did not even serve me a day, is there any laws that protects consumers that are victims of this type of dilemma?

Did you get ANY kind of warranty papers , or did they sell it to you "as-is"? The paperwork they gave you is the best start. Let us know.
It is a Mandatory law (Lemon law) you have 72 hours to return any vehicle that is Financed to the dealer purchased from that starts 24 hours after you sign the contract for any reason with full does not matter weither it was advertised as is or with warrenty. SO to answer your question you do have protection from this kind of Dealer my advice is to while during your test drive go to a oil change place and get the oil changed it is best to be out of $20 bucks than $6,000 and if the salesman refuse then forget that vehicle
The car was not financed, they charged $500 to my debit card and i paid the balance with a check, i called the sales man and informed him about the problem, he said i should talk to the dealership gm, i have left messages for the gm and he has not called back since then. yesterday i told my bank to put a stop payment on the check, what do you think about that, i am afraid of doing that but i had to. My bank said they can only prevent the check from going through if it had not been tendered for cashing as at yesterday.
