I bought a 2004 Ford Taurus as recommended by CarGurus. I made specifications, but I failed to mention that I wanted the car to have an air conditioner that worked for longer than 1 month. Now, I have to pay $800 to have air conditioner repaired. Does a prospective car buyer really need to specify that they want the car to have an air conditioner that works for more than a month after date of purchase?
Buy a car with a warranty next time, You did buy a 14 year old car.
Warranty, yes. There are no guarantees when buying a used car on how long something will fail. It even happens to new cars as well, but they have warranties.
Maybe the seller did not know that it would only last a month. I would try to refill the refrigerant with a $15.00 can from a box store before giving it to a repair shop.
