Five Star Ford Lincoln Very Terrible Used Car Buying Experience Warner Robbins Georgia
I searched around for a Used car for several weeks. I know I did not want to buy a used car that wouldn't make it a month, which is what nobody wants in a used car buying experience. That's exactly what happened to me.
I bought a used vehicle at the beginning of August. It didn't make it another three weeks. It was a 2006. It had less than 100k miles on it. I was told that it was driven very easy and was assured it would last at least another year or two. I was told so many good things about my Ford. So, since I only needed it to last basically a year, I signed an "AS-IS."
So, three weeks later- less than 2,000 more miles on the car- I've got engine stalling, knocking, and extremely rough idling. It hardly starts. I took it to a mechanic who gave me a $2650 estimate that I know is reasonable for what he described to me. Major engine repair needed. I would have to at least replace bottom parts of the engine and some bearings. He suggested replacing the engine with a used engine.
I understand "AS-IS." I may have to replace a starter, an alternator, maybe even some fuel injectors. COMPLETE ENGINE OVERHAUL, though? That's ridiculous. When I called them, they told me that basically there was nothing I could do for me. Yes, I know that Georgia Lemon Laws won't help me. However, I just refuse to believe that fair business practices would tell them to do nothing when I basically chose the car because they told me it would definitely last at least a year.
