labadie toyota sold me a car with a bad engine bay city Michigan
I bought a car in late January from Labadie Toyota (I paid cash). The day I bought the car they put in a new battery and when I left with it I noticed th engine light coming on. I called them and they told me to bring it back in and they would fix it the next day. When I picked my vehical up approximetly 4-5 hours later, they said the problem was fixed but did not clearify what the problem was. Within 5-7days I noticed a problem with my breaks grinding really bad, they told me it was because the car had been sitting and they said it would stop after a while.
Well it kept accuring so I called once again and they said to bring it in and they will check it. I took the vehical in the following day, they told me that I would have to leave it over night. The following evening I went to pick my vehical up and they informed me I had to replace the break line. It was no more than 2-3 weeks my car started over heating (which was after my 30 days or 1,000ml warrenty) I spent the next 4 weeks replacing the water pump, radiator, and thermistat, just to find out my engine was gone!
So I contacted the salesman that sold me the car Charlie Engalhardt, he told me that they would not replace the engine. He also said it was financially worth it to Labadie. He told me he would do all he can to swap out my car and find me another one. After a month I did not hear from him, I called the sales manager T.J Horner and he told me once I drove it off the lot it was my problem, and that it was an older used car! That was in April. It is now November and I havent heard from them since! I am on SSI and I think its a shame that they would take advantage of someone on a fixed income and not care of the outcome once they got their money. So please beware of this dealership!
