Jeesh. This issue has been around for, oh, a few thousand years....and the latin term is Caveat emptor -- Buyer Beware.
If I buy something used, I know I'm responsible if it falls apart within ten minutes. If I sell something used, I tell the buyer "the warranty lasts til the end of the driveway."
If you're the kind of fella who goes back to "confront" a seller after buying something and it turns out to be lemon, I do hope that if you ever buy something used and it turns out to be a better bargain that you first thought.... send some additional money to the former owner. Goes both ways...
