I’d appreciate input, kind people.
I bought an 04 Matrix 9 months ago with low miles (68000 or so) and a 12 month warranty that states the dealer will make all needed repairs and maintenance. So… it turns out that the subframe is so rusty there are holes in it and a big hole in the rocker panel (near the drivers seat, there is only carpet, no metal-OMG)
That and other significant repair problems have been brought to their attention and we meet again next week to discuss my options. I paid a retail price for this car. Low miles, nice interior, 12-month warranty, it seemed good, and so… I never imagined I would be taken for a ride like this.
What do you think I should hold out for? They are required to keep the car “inspectable” throughout the 12 mos. I’m purposely leaving out some of the needed repairs in this description.
Do you think it’s reasonable for me to expect all my money back? I don’t want to be greedy, but I was shocked to learn that they had the car in and out for repairs and were “overlooking” major problems… at the very least. Car has been in their shop multiple times for check engine codes etc.
I think they want to make me happy. What would you do in this case? They are a dealer with “good rep”. How happy should I be?
