Default Kicked the Bucket Today

So yea i blew the motor in my bonnie today, a direct result of the intake failing and coolant getting in my oil. So now i have to deal with CarHop, the worst dealership around, to get my motor replaced under warrenty. Plus i think the radiator is shot cause i stopped and it started pissing coolant from the driver side of the radiator.

Most people are not aware that they will treat you as if you dropped the soap... i was just way to excited when i was approved to get financing at 18 to see how shady they are.

Mine did the same thing (only she decided to throw a rod through the tranny, too). But, she'* up and running now. They can survive this.

Good luck with the warranty battle.

I'd be very interested to hear how the dealership handles this warranty claim. For a dealership-only warranty, we have yet to hear of a case where they just say "okay" and deal with it the way they said they would, when they sold you the warranty.
