They should at least take care of the spark plug since something like that should be caught in an inspection prior to selling a car.
Amen, I never said anything about the motor mount being covered, I DID go over warranty with sales man, I'm more upset with the fact (if this is the problem which I stated erlier) is kinda messed up. Is Mista crazy enough to believe simple things like a tune up and motor mount should be fine in a 6 year old car?

I don't know where you get this "Childish behavior" from yea, I'm upset but I know I don't have bumper to bumper It'* just funny that these are the only problems they found if that.............. as far as money everything must be accounted for, who in the world would think a car that new would have a bad mount C'mon are you kidding me? the thing if 6 years old where was it built N.Korea? Don't want to "Waste" money not broke but sure in the hell not rich either, I'll take care of this I just hope they know as far as the motor mount if the thing is flimsy, what comes around goes right back..............

Cars will always break down at the worst of times, trust me, i spent 2grand on a transmission last year while making $8.00/hr 35hrs a week, now that im making 3 times that its easier, however, mounts and plugs that kinda thing, can go after one year, it happens all the time, i work in a shop, our service dept sees this alot.
My suggestion...get the mount from a jobber, and change it yourself, its fairly easy, and will only cost you a few hours versus $$$. Plugs and crap like that are cheap on these cars (about the only thing that is)
It wouldnt help a damned thing going in there and yelling at the service manager, do NOT **** the people off that fix your stuff, its a bad choice.
