As much as you dont want to hear this, to me it sounds like you didnt bother following proper procedure when buying a vehicle...

ALWAYS GET A USED VEHICLE INSPECTED BY A MECHANIC OF YOUR CHOOSING, NOT THE DEALERSHIP OR PERSON(s) SELLING YOU THE VEHICLE

There was nothing in the contract about returning the vehicle if anything was wrong with it by "X" amount of days, the bill of sale likely said " Sold AS IS " so you handed a vehicle over to a shady used car dealership that already ripped you off, expecting them to not do it again?

Buy cars from reputable people and/or dealerships and keep them honest by having any vehicle you might purchase inspected by YOUR mechanic.

That being said, sorry this happened to you. I hope the next vehicle you buy is from a reliable / trustworthy source.
