Below is the letter I mailed to the sales representative, [redacted]I was lured to your classified ad on about the sale of a 2002 Subaru Outback, Color Blue, VIN: 4S3BHXXXXXXXXXXXX. The ad was very appealing because of the low price of 2,000 and the statements that nothing was wrong with the vehicle. Also, the ad was deceptive because you tried to act as if you were a private seller. When I called you with interest in the car, you told me it was your personal vehicle and that you were trying to sell it. This made me believe that you were a private party. Upon test driving the vehicle, I decided to make the purchase for 2,000. When I purchased the car, the check engine light was off and it appeared to be in good shape. Once I gave you my money, you then informed me that you were a dealer. I took the vehicle home. The next day, the check engine light came on although you told me there was nothing wrong with the car. At this time, I took the vehicle to my mechanic to get it checked. I was informed that the vehicle had the code, P0420, which meant that the catalytic converter was faulty. I called you and you promised orally to fix the car. About 10 days later, on December 18, 2013, I drove to your residence to return the car to you. When I arrived, you took me to a private garage with about 5 other cars in the lot. You showed me another car and said that this one was perfect with no issues at all. I was in need of a second car for my wife so I decided to make the purchase. I purchased another 2002 Subaru Outback, Color Black, VIN: 4S3BH686XXXXXXXXX for 2,600. You stated that you were fixing the timing belt on the new Subaru I had just purchased. You stated that you would deliver the new Subaru to me the next day and would take the first Subaru I purchased to get fixed. I agreed to your terms.About a week later, you delivered the black Subaru Outback to my parents' residence in Worcester, MA. I gave you the blue Subaru so you could fix the catalytic converter. The next day, the check engine light came on in the black Subaru. This was the second vehicle I purchased from you that was faulty; even though you told me it had no mechanical issues at all. I took this one to my mechanic and he stated it had a bad catalytic converter and the emergency brake was faulty. I called you and you orally promised to fix this one as well.About three weeks later, you returned the Blue Subaru to me and took the black Subaru home. You stated that you replaced the catalytic converter and that the problem was now fixed. You gave me a receipt of a catalytic converter that you supposedly purchased. This receipt came from your place of work, [redacted]. I believe this receipt is fraudulent. While driving the Blue Subaru home, the check engine light came on again. It was at this point that I realized that you simply shut the check engine light off and did not fix the vehicle. You were deceiving me. I called you and stated I wanted a refund. You told me that you would fix the problem once again. I asked if you repaired the black Subaru and you stated that it was at the Subaru dealership in Natick, MA getting repaired. I called the Subaru dealer and provided the VIN number to check if it was being repaired. They stated they never received my vehicle. At this point, I knew I was being deceived again. On January 25, 2014, I finally received the black Subaru with no receipts or proof that you fixed it. You told me you replaced the catalytic converter and the two oxygen sensors. You told me it was fixed and would pass [redacted] The vehicle did not. The check engine light came back on the next day.Desired SettlementI am attempting to receive a refund for a lemon vehicle that was sold to me by a sales representative. I paid 2,600 for a 2002 Subaru Outback that has substantial impairment with serious safety hazards such a defective emergency brake and defective catalytic converter. I simply wanted the vehicle fixed, but [redacted] kept taking the car and simply shutting off the check engine light instead of fixing it. He promised to refund my money on March 23, 2014, but now he will not answer my phone calls. I want to avoid litigation, but I will resort to it if it is the only option left.
