Bought a car 30 days ago from a local dealer. Ran
into problems with the car around the 27th day. The
dealer said they had a mechanic that could fix it for
cheap and under my 30 day warranty. Towed the car
to the dealership. Returned a few hours later to find
that they had burned my car to the ground in their
shop and care. I called my insurance and they said
they cant do anything for me. The shop doesnt have
insurance as Ive called numerous times and asked
for it, the wont give me any info.

Your only recourse is to sue the dealership for negligence. Negligence is the failure to exercise due care (that degree of care that a reasonable auto dealership would have exercised under the same or similar circumstances to prevent foreseeable harm).
Your damages (monetary compensation you are seeking in your lawsuit) would be the value of your car.
