After having my car stolen a few months ago, I finally found a car that looked promising: a 96 Mazda Protoge. I had it checked out at a garage who told me that it needed all new breaks which was OK and even checked to make sure the check engine light was functioning. I purchased the car yesterday (the 8th) for $2100 from a small dealer who buys cars at auctions and resells them. The car drives great until today (the 9th) when I'm driving home from work and the check engine light comes on. I have scantool run on it and find out that the mass air sensor circuit or somesuch has malfunctioned to the tune of $200. I bought the car with no warranty in Georgia, but I mean i haven't driven it hardly at all, this is the next day! Do I have any recourse or rights in this situation or am I completely screwed?
