Warped Disks - Is this covered by Warrenty?
My AU II has warped front disks. Has done since I bought it. Does anyone know if this should be covered by warrenty?
When I was buying the car, I told the dealer I didn't want the car, as it had warped disks. Everything else about it was fine, but I was not buying a car that I had to spend money on.
He assured me that the problem was fairly common, and would be covered by my warrenty.
So, being slack, I never got around to getting it fixed. I finally take the car into to City Ford this morning, and they tell me that it is not covered by warrenty, and would cost me $170. I had to restrain myself from absuing him. Not his fault. But wait until I see that dealer!!!
I would of thought this common problem would of been covered by warrenty. The guy at City Ford said they had only ever had one through warrenty, and that was on a car with only 2,400ks on it.
I am taking the car back to the dealer that sold it to me tomorrow. And he will get a mouthfull of abuse!! And to top it off, I have to pay for parking in the city today.
