Well, that certainly doesn't look like a water pump that was replaced just 30K ago! It looks more like someone got taken for a $500 ride.

Anyway, glad you got it fixed.

BTW, where did you learn to write? I was all out of breath by the time I finished reading this.

Thinking of what lash said u might want her to go complain to whoever did that water pump job. $END THEM TO COURT AND GET THE $$$$500$$$$ BACK!

I got the idea from that dealership rip off thread oh, wtg on the jeep, never driven an suv before :(
