4 weeks, the camshaft position sensors had to be replaced. While the car was in a different shop, they checked the oil, they drained the oil right in front of me because they wanted me to see how thick & black it was, this repair shop reports worst oil they have seen in a while. This repair shop recommended I get another oil change in 500 miles (even if I do not return to their shop for the oil change) this will flush the engine.
I reported the above problem to service department at Wayne Chevrolet. The dealership reported this vehicle was regularly maintained at their dealership, also the previous owner had the oil changed at 92,000 miles, we bought it with 93,173. The dealership told me they did not see the need to change the oil, no one of course told us this during the purchase, but we ourselves noticed the oil to be reasonably dark when we checked it early on after purchasing it. We put on 600 miles since owning this vehicle. The dealership refused to white out the previous owners name & provide me proof of all the regular routine service/oil changes they claim were routinely performed at Wayne Chevrolet by the previous owner, just really want proof of oil change. The dealership told us if we have a problem after a purchase, we need to bring it there. The car initially drove fine, but all in 1 day, the car started stalling any time we sat at a stop sign/light/ordering at drive up window, I had to have the vehicle towed 26 miles to get it to a shop, I was not going to have it towed another 35 miles to go to the dealership. This cost me $418.73 for diagnostics, 2 camshaft position sensors, oil filter, oil & labor. Yes, the car is in 90,000 mile range, repairs are to be expected, but cars today will last 230,000+ if properly maintained, every vehicle we have ever owned has made it to 280,000+ miles. Before buying a used vehicle from Wayne Thomas Chevrolet, be sure to have vehicle looked at by your trusted service mechanic, don't trust that the service department completed a basic oil change or other repairs on a used vehicle.
