The problem now is Sergeys' 72 hour guarantee has expired. I took the truck to my own mechanic who took the tires off and showed me the disater that was waiting to happen; bad brakes and calipers, no emergency brake, upper control arms and ball joints wasted away to nothing. Quote from 2 mechanics, 'If you'd have hit a bad bump your wheels could have fallen off." Called Sergey and aksed him to make it right; he said my 72 hours is up and he doesn't have to do anything. I told him I was reporting him to the State Police for selling a car that could not pass a Pennsylvania safety inspection; his response, "I'm calling the police on you for harrassing me." The nice guy from the previous Saturday who assured me my daughter would be in a safe vehicle had totally disappeared. I did report this to State Police who is taking this violation of the law extremely serious; as well as the inspection station that placed safety stickers on a car that was on the verge of falling apart. I'm not mad at making a bad deal for myself; happens. I'm not mad at being inconvenienced for work and getting my daughter to preschool.
What I'm most angry about is having a MAN, if that's what he is, putting my daughters life in danger to make a couple bucks on a used car. Some simple honesty and saying, look this car needs a lot of work to be safe let me show you something that costs a little more but is in better shape. I would have gladly coughed up the extra dough and I wouldn't be writing this. I'm glad a had a father who worked on cars and was a mechanic his whole life teach me to never trust anyone you don't know with your brakes....I took that advice and went to a reputable mechanic in order to protect my child and I'm so glad I did. This guy is a heartless business person and should be in jail for selling the vehicles he does. I will follow up on this post and report what happens going forward.
