I purchased a car for two thousand dollars and it only lasted a week, I took it back and Star Auto told me it needed a fuel pump,they put the pump on and I was going home and the car shut-off again, I took it back, and they told me it was the converter, they removed it, I started home with the car, and it stopped it again, I took it back and they told me it was the brain, they replaced that and I was on my way home and the car stopped again. I took the car back and they said it was an electrical problem and it could'nt be fixed, needless to say I was upset, an argument ensued, and he called me racial names, as I am white, and he's arabic, he threatened to get me if ever I showed my face there again, I paid two thousand dollars for this car, plus all the repairs he done which was eight hundred dollars, I took the car to another mechanic and he told me the car was junk, and it could'nt be fixed, I got one hundred dollars from the junk yard for the car.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

You should have had a mechanic look at the car before you bought it.

I work for a dealer in Michigan. First what kind of car was this. If it was a GM product I might know what was causing this.

Always get a mechanic to check the car over before you purchase a car. It may cost you 40.00 on average to do this, however it saves you in the long run. And also file a complaint with the State on their website against the dealer.

I am sure that you purchased this car AS-IS which means it's your problem when it breaks down. You did do the right thing by taking it back to the dealer, however he did not have to treat you like that. And I am sure that there is someplace for you to make a claim against the dealer for racial discrimination.
