Default I AM GOING TO SNAP UPDATE ALMOST CRASHED CASUSE OF IT

Went to the dealer to pick up my car bill comes to 1700 for the ABS brake modulator valve+labour and some work done on my shifter/key lock cylinder. Once all that was done it turns out my front drivers side wheel sensor is bad, and the traction hub (the part on the inside of the car). The total for that will eb 1200 if i decide to get it done. Now i paid 4400 for the car to buy it. That is now 3000 in repairs - the 275 dollar MAF sensor it still needs.
AHHH this is way to much money for me.

My ABS/Traction is out, too. I need a new PMV and 2 wheel speed sensors. It can wait.

You need a new wheel bearing... $120 USD from Autozone, if you install it yourself. Also, if the pedal is spongy, they got air into the system when they installed the PMV. Take it back and have them get all of the air out of the brake lines. That'* a poor install job.

You're telling me...I bought mine for $7000 2 years ago...already have about 5,000 in repairs (a couple accidents) plus another couple hundred for wheel bearings, and $2000 in rust repairs if I don't patch it up myself. Thank GOD I haven't had any other problems. I'm wonderng if I should sell this once the rust is fixed instead of keeping it and restoring it. This is draining my wallet. I just wish a SC was for sale now.

Luckily the $5000 in body repairs was not all out of my pocket..but still, in body repairs more money will have gone into it that I bought the car for.

Default um

wheel bearings? I did a curb munch in the winter time and bent one so at 60-80km/h it would thump... I thought the job was pretty cheap... but I just got a used hub

On my way to work this evening i almost went through a red light because the peadle went to floor and had just enough to stop the car....now lets see if i would of hit the car infront of me, the dealer would of been liable because they told me and my mom over the phone the car was road safe. I phoned them right away and said tomorrow morning at 8 am the car is going in, its going to get fixed properly for free, and i am never returnin here to do business with you guys again.

I think mine is starting to go too. ABS/Traction lights stay on a little longer than usual when I turn on the car.
