THIS IS JUST MY EXPERIENCE.......GO AT YOUR OWN RISK.....you know, like i did :)
anywho, I GOT GOT!. THEY SELL YOU CARS WITH KNOWN ISSUES AND IM REPORTING THEM TO THE BBB. I dont like getting dicked.
And thanks to the poor customer service i just got from our phone convo, here stems this review.
I just got a 2006 Solara from Nationwide Used cars. Salesman was: Bill Kauffman. He seemed helpful at first. When i was test driving the car, we noticed the wheel was pulling to the right. BILL KAUFFAN said he was going to have DON WARD SERVICE MANAGER take car of it and that I would just have to give him a call. WHEN I called DONALD WARD to setup service, he said he never even spoke to BILL KAUFFMAN but said i can bring the car in anyway.
REWIND: 30 minutes after i drove off the the the 'tire pressure sensor' came on. I checked the air in all of the tires and it was fine, reset the switch, and I was good to go...or so i thought. ((((I had to put air in my tire every single day up until I bought another one 2 days ago because it was getting flat to the ground.)))) When i took the car in for service, they kept it over night just to tell me that theyre not going to do an alignment and that its pulling to the right because of the right rear tire not having enough air. OH REALLY? THE RIGHT REAR TIRE THAT YALL KNEW HAD A SLOW LEAK IN IT BEFORE YOU SOLD IT TO ME IS THE CAUSE and they wont replace the tire or plug it. Its funny because the day i went to get the car, i overheard some other guy on the opposite side of the dealership talking to someone about putting air in a back right tire...but i didnt pay him any mind because he wasnt working with me. WISH I DID. So now to me , MR. KAUFMAN YOU'RE JUST AS GUILTY BECAUSE YOU ALREADY KNEW ABOUT IT AND LIED.
MOVING FORWARD: I get the car back from the dealer and now the car pulls to the left and i hear a clunking noise under the rear of my car when i go over speed bumps or any bumps for that matter. I called them back to tell them about the problem and you know wtf they told me????? "we cant do anything about it because we didnt hear a noise the day the car left the lot the day you brough it in for service". REALLY? YOU DIDNT HEAR THE NOISE WHEN YOU HAD THE CAR BECAUSE YOU WERENT LOOKING TO HEAR THE NOISE. ALL YOU DID WHEN YOU HAD MY CAR WAS PUT AIR IN MY TIRE AND CLAIM THAT WAS THE ISSUE FOR MY CAR PULLING SO YOU DIDNT HAVE TO FIX ANYTHING.
So all issues that still stand:
-I had to buy a new tire with my money only 2 weeks into having the car
-Car doesnt pull to the right anymore....IT PULLS TO THE LEFT (they never even checked to see if i needed an alignment..just assumed)
-Possible that I'll need new struts or may have a suspension issue.
-The car had issues starting up for the past two days.
-Unstable steering when going at high speeds
-my mood towards DON WARD THE SERVICE MANAGER AND BILL KAUFFMAN....better yet, the whole schemin' a** dealership
AND NOTHING CAN BE FIXED?
