Probably should have had the car checked out before you bought it? .-.
Or any car for that matter - my folks bought a brand new van one time and took it to the dealership within a few months to replace a broken button on a door - no big deal. Until the mechanic took the casing off the inside of the door and all the pieces fell apart; it turns out the door was majorly damaged at the factory and was put back together with super glue, to be sold as new. Fortunately the dealership had no problems replacing that door at no cost to my parents, in addition to providing them with a rental until the job was done.
YDI for A) buying such a crap vehicle and B) saying "Gas" instead of petrol.
Well good news its a good car because its cheap and super easy to fix these things on your own. My first car was a 72 VW Bug. It caught on fire in a gas station : ) drove that puppy home though and no one got hurt
My first car was a 72 bug also! My parents bought it for $80 - really! It had no engine or tranny and had to be completely re-built. It was a project car and my dad figured that between the two of us working on it on weekends, we could have refurbished it by the time I was ready to take my road test two and a half hears later. I did some basic body work on it, but eventually sold it to a local collector we'd met. He had a few other bugs and a bus that he'd restored to showroom condition. Last I heard, he'd fully restored it and sold it to someone in the Hamptons.
