Can I tell you a happy times story.
I got a WRX02 Program car with 12k miles on it. Looks great! Well here is the time line to make it short
day 1 - bought the car ; Yipee !
day 3 - Check engine light , Service said its a exaust probe - told me to take it back in if it comes back up
day 4 - Dash lights quit working - reset with a new fuse , said it may be a short under the dash. Take it back in if the lights quit working again
day 7 - Transmission makes REALLY loug griding noise - They take the car , and take the tranny out. Said it will be a few days to to get the parts and tehn get it out. 1 week
day 14 - Went to get car, not done - no parts (LARGE list of parts) warehouse fire in Colorado where the parts where comming from. Said one more week.
day 21 - Went to get car - Parts not in yet, they get mad because I am "Bugging" them a lot. 3 days to get it
day 24 - Car comes back - Working great from what I can tell
day 28 - Check engine lite comes back on - Dealership wants me to take it BACK in again to have the exaust probe replaced (Whatever that is)
day 29 - Dash lighs stop working AGAIN
day 29 - SAME DAY - one of the return lines on the radiator popped off bcasue the hose clamp wasnt put back on after they removed it. Steam shoots everywhere - even from my ears!
Ok - For some reason I am getting a bad feeling about all this. I LOVE my car but is it going to give me crap for 10 more years? Or is this just a lemon that I got. According to texas lemon laws I cant technicaly claim it as a lemon yet KIND OF, I can call the Texas Office of the Attorney General, Consumer Protection Division, and make a claim - But I dont think I would win. What do you guys think. I have had the car for about a month or so and ONLY driven about 600-700 Miles on it.
To say the least, Im really upset.
