    Congrats on your purchase. Be safe, and treat the car nicely, I will do so in return. That sucks that you already had to send it in, but sounds like you've got everything under control

    Who did you buy it from? Why didn't the motor 'blow' on them first?

    I bought it from a dealership, and I guess they didnt drive it, at all cause i test drove it, and it drove fine, soon as i got back to my house the motor started making a knocking noise and i brung it to a mechanic and he said ther was no oil in it, so i brought it back to the dealer and he said they are doing a engine swap with a engine that has 30k miles, when i bought it, it had 70k so i guess im getting a better deal when i get it back. Hopefully they do a good job on the swap. I'll keep you guys informed.
