Bought a used Acura RDX. Dealership indicated it passed a 120-point inspection. They reported it had nothing needing repairs; in good condition, etc. In less than a week of owning it, brakes start squeaking - turns out, my car has only 1mm of brake pads left on front end, about 3mm on back end, back rotors need replacing, etc. Mechanic said, "I wouldn't even drive it to work tomorrow without getting it fixed first."
When I called to speak with Amir (manager), he was defensive, made statements such as, "We have proof that 2 weeks before you purchased, your brake pads were at 5mm and no one else drove the vehicle in between - I don't know who you're taking your car to or who's telling you that but the brakes were fine; we're not going to do anything about brakes"... etc. Not sympathetic, not concerned, just defensive, implying that my mechanic doesn't know what he's talking about, etc. No apologies, no attempts to "make it right" as a businessman, just passive hostile responses. I wasn't even asking them to fix the brakes - just inquiring how my car passed the 120-point inspection.
I would've been fine, if, when I asked, "Is there anything wrong with the car - anything that needs fixing?" they had said, "Well, the brake pads are pretty worn - you'll want to get them fixed right away," but they continued to maintain that it passed a 120-point inspection.
My mechanic/shop is highly recommended by thousands of people, and they have been here for many years. Plus, my car is squealing now when I brake, so you do the math.
I would like to say, though, that my salesperson, Angelique, was very friendly, patient, hard-working and nice to work with. But overall, it leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth, especially when the manager doesn't really want to hear what I'm saying, and I get stuck with a big brake bill when I haven't even owned the car 1 week.
