Fraudulent business practice

I purchased a truck for my husband from dealing ford through eBay. When we came from Michigan to pick it up it was not working properly. I was told they would fix it and I offered to meet them half way since it was a long distance. We met in Michigan city and my daughter drove the truck home. We were told he would also replace a small part that was needed to make the air-conditioning work. When we tried it , it was not fixed. The truck did not work well and we kept it in the garage. We decided to sell it. When I went to place an ad I noticed that the mileage that was stated on eBay was 169,350.. When I looked at the milage it stated 196600.
We had only driven it home. When I called dealing I was given the run around. I called at least 0 times. When we tried to sell it not pnly was the mileage wrong, the air not working, the 4 wheel drive also did not work. We paid $1550.00 and had to sell it for $400.00. Does anyone else have issues with them? Or any suggestions? I did contact the attorney generals office who suggested I file in small claims court.
Thanks for your help.

Did you buy it used? Usually they don't give warrantees on used vehicles. And if you bought it from a private person, it's buyer beware. You buy as is.

I bought it from DeLong Ford a car dealer. They listed everything and told me everything worked. They were off almost 30,000 pn the mileage alone. I didn't think to check the mileage as it was purchased from a Ford dealer.

But most used cars don't come with a waranty. And you should have had it fixed before you drove it off the lot. You may have something if you still have the ad, maybe.
