Question posted in the General Law category relating to Eastern Cape

What do I do if i suspect that I have been sold a car that has some questionable mechanical issues? I have not been given an invoice which is supposed to detail on about the car. I bought the car on the 17th June 2020 and to date, change of ownership has not been done 

As i write, the car is parked at a garage in Mpumalanga. I pulled it in there on the 29th July 2020 when it was giving with oil leak 

I suspect that the car was probably involved in an accident and the seller never disclosed that to me 

Please advise me on how to deal with this challenge 

Your immediate response will be highly appreciated
