"I have four kids. We have school and doctor's appointments and just the normal everyday stuff you have as a family," Guerrero said.
Michale says he bought a used car just a few days before Christmas last December, hoping to get a vehicle that would last. It didn't
The vehicle gave him problems from the very first day he bought it from Gibson Motors. First, there was an issue with the brakes. Then his fuel pumps gave out.
"Now, as it stands, I'm basically on foot," Guerrero said.
He's tried talking to the person that sold him the vehicle. Michale says they have done nothing to fix the problem. And according to the Better Business Bureau, they don't legally have to do anything.
"Most used cars in Texas are sold as is," said Steve Abel with the Abilene BBB.
That means as soon as the ink dries, the car and all its problems belong to the owner. Abel says this time of year, he's flooded with calls from people who have purchased cars from used car dealerships.
"There may be 100,000 miles in them. There may be 10 miles left in them. You want to make sure you're not the one that gets the car with 10 miles in it," Abel said.
"It's like being robbed legally," Guerrero said.
Michale has borrowed a car from one of his friends, until he can save up enough money to purchase a new vehicle.
"Make sure you check all your paperwork. Don't let what happen to me, happen to you," Guerrero said.
