Wanna bet? Sometimes it does, sometimes it starts a pissing match & trust me Chrysler has Attorneys sitting around with nothing better to do then make a small guy go broke..... Bruce knows he bought the engine in it's current condition but you wanna guess how many holes an attorney could drive a truck through to make proving the engine was delivered in it's current condition....  Bruce needs Someone in a position of Authority to step up & make the right call in the interests of customer satisfaction &  goodwill.... Sometimes the pressure of an internet forum can help, sometimes it's creates the same reaction as hiring an attorney...

I think Bruce's calm patient dealing is gonna be more effective then trying to intimidate Mopar...

asserting your legal rights, is not intimidation. Its your rights under the Constitution.
In the auto industry, being calm and patient will get you nowhere, most of the time.

The old expression that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar came about for a reason. Yeah, you can get all lawyered up, but most of the time that just makes another payment on his Porsche. I totally agree that regardless of where YOUR supplier got this alleged engine, it should be sitting in HIS shop as he gets you another one and deals with the system that he bought it from. If you bought a new Challenger and it turned out to be a POS, do you think that you'd have to deal with the salesman who sold it to you? Take the F**king thing back to where you got it and leave it on his doorstep, then it can be HIS problem. In Canada, we have a thing called "small claims court" That's where you- not your lawyer- get up and tell the judge what the situation is and if the other party can't justify their actions, you win AND you get your costs as well. Keep the lawyers as a last resort IMHO. Good luck  :cheers:

small claims in the US is for things under $2000 I think.
More than that, and you have to lawyer up.

Hell yeah!

She doesn't take any B.S.

More Judges should take her stance.

I was in a small claims Kangaroo court and the Judge threw the case out and said settle it yourselves.
I was totally in the right.

I honestly think if Roseville took the payment, it is up to Roseville to reimburse and/or make the deal. They in turn go to MP. It's the way business is done. There are no friendships here, or shouldn't be. Not trying to be a dick but with my contractors it is they who sign a contract with a warranty. I'm not chasing their suppliers if there's a problem. I go to the name on the contract and if they can't address it you can damn sure know it is they the lawyers will call.
WHOMEVER TOOK YOUR PAYMENT IS 100% RESPONSIBLE TO MAKE THIS RIGHT. Should they go up their supplier chain to recoup losses is up to them.

This is part of the reason why I avoid at all costs doing any professional transactions with friends or family. Hopefully it doesn't bite the OP in the ass.

I think we should step back from judging tho, obviously he has his reasons for letting his friend slide on this whose business he bought it from.
