Here are the specifics....
* Wheel cylinders leaking
* Front brakes down 3 ml. of grading
* Rotors grooved need replacement
They are charging me close to $1K to fix the brakes.
It surprises me that the standard warranty (and the additional
100K warranty I purchased) does not cover failed brakes nor any
of these problems at this early stage of the vehicle's life.
Should I be arguing with the dealer about this or should
I just empty my wallet?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
Sounds a little high , I would be getting another quote , brakes are consumables so I doubt the warranty will cover them but is there some sort or factory mod that should be applied providing at least some cover .?
maybe they are not telling you >
anyone know if this is an endemic known situation ?
