I vowed never to buy a used car from a used car lot after that. My dad was in the car business for decades (mercedes benz) and I can say they never pulled shenanigans like that.

I remember one old guy who kept bringing his little yellow toyota pickup back each week always with a different electrical problem. It was sold to him before I started work. The older mechanic there told me it had been flooded and would always be having problems due to corrosion. We always felt bad for him and fixed it each time. I think the Lemon Laws came from dealers like that.

I did not stay there long. Maybe 3 months. Took jobs cooking and day laboring for less money because it was impossible to feel clean working there.
