did you buy an extended warranty?

ALWAYS buy an extended warranty. its worth the extra $10 a month

Yea of course. Its a 24K 24M warranty. The dealer is giving me a hard time with the P0420. Im bringing her to the shop I regulary visit. He will probably hook me up without a wait time of a week. The dealer said they were unwilling to give me a loaner and that they would need the car for up to a week to order the parts. Basically a run around. I work about 40 miles away and need the car since I work nights. So my plan is to bring it in to the shop Wednesday and see if they take the warranty I have. It's Whyns so they should. I'll be putting in a BBB report on the dealer as well as NYS for giving me a car with an inspection more than 30 days old. The inspection was from March. I called them out on that and they said it was 90 days while it clearly states on the NYS DMV website it must be 30 days or less.

It's funny when I asked him about a loaner he said that there was an enterprise across the street that I could get a rent a car. Why should I pay a single penny for it when they let the car go off the lot knowing it had a CEL on that they probably just erased? It's my first time buying a car from a dealer so I know they took advantage of me. I guess I will learn the hard way.
