    I bought a 2006 Tacoma from a dealership less than a week ago in NY. I took it to a mechanic and he said that the car had a lot of rust on the chassis and was a danger to drive. I signed a 30 day warranty (lemon law) and so am bringing it back to the dealer tomorrow (along with the mechanic report, plus a pic of the rust-see below). Has anyone had the experience where they didn't do their due diligence and messed up like this? Just looking for any guidance on making my case to these shady salespeople.

    Demand all your money back. The dealership will most likely not argue with you, they will put it back for sale and screw someone else over (unfortunately).

    Start drafting a letter to the attorney generals office.
    Don’t let the shady dealer try and tell you that they’ll fix it for you.
