In short, they bought a car that didn't work and even had to tow it back to the dealer's lot where it's been tucked away for months.

The owner of Family Certified Auto Plus, Gordon Savic, sold the business and refused to fix the car.

After NH1's story aired, the new owner told us he wanted to make this right.

He says he contacted Savic and they agreed that Savic would give the Murrays a full refund.

"I did talk to him - as a matter of fact, on my way here, I did talk to him, and he gave me his word that tomorrow they will have a check," Eduard Fandunyan, of Sevan Auto Group, said.. "I have this feeling, I have faith in him and I know he will do it. I believe in it, and if I am wrong, then I'll take care of it. I want them to know that there's somebody who will help them."

The next day, the Murrays and their lawyer Jim Steiner met the two dealers - and got the check.

"That is amazing, I feel terrible that they kind of inherited this problem, but on the other hand, I am so grateful that they are willing to help us out to make this right," Michael Murray said. "I kind of feel like I can breathe again.

"You are awesome! Thank you so much for everything, I still can’t believe it. I’ve been smiling like an idiot since I talked to you. It’s incredible."

Since the story about the Murray's aired, another family has come forward with their story about Family Certified Auto Plus.

They are in the middle of a court battle with Savic.
