How would you deal with this...

We just spent 5 grand getting our car like new again, we got it home, drove it twice, and a "SENSOR" went out and it wouldn't start.. had it towed back to the dealership, they put in the sensor and now we have to pay $190 So frustrating!

  • Your luck sounds like ours. We are looking for a used van, it's a scary world out there when it comes to cars. That is probably why a lot of people buy new ones, but we don't have the money for the payments. Did you question the dealer why this wasn't checked, or was it something totally unrelated to why the car was at the dealership in the first place.

  • I wouldn't. They should have tested it to make sure was working before they finished.

  • I know where you are coming from we just bought a fairly used car we paid cash we have it for a week we take it in for a check up and the mechanic says there is not much to worrry for now but there will be things that need to be fixed. Just keep an eye out besides my dh is a mechanic himself he just wanted to make sure he covered all angles so when the time comes he'll be ready. And yes it sucks when you have to come up with more cash that you don't have. GL

  • Really, that should have been free because they missed it the first time. If something like that would ever happen again, complain to a manager before you pay the bill. You might be able to get the bill reduced or get the part for nothing.

  • Not sure why you had to pay for a part that went awry.
