Don’t You Hate It When…

I decided to play along with Shelle over at BlokThoughts today.( Go check out her own “Don’t you hate it when…” post and all the other ones who played.

Don’t you hate it when you buy a brand spankin’ new car, find a couple of defects, and in the two weeks that you’ve had it, you’ve had to take it to the shop THREE times for the same problems because the mechanics are too darn stupid to fix them, and you wish that you never traded in your perfectly good 8-year-old car?

  1. You know, there are very few good things about my not knowing how to drive, but this may be one of them!

    I had a car like that once!!! It was a total lemon – the electrical stuff was all bad and they got mad at ME because I kept bringing it back!!! Be tough, you can do it!

  5. Read about your new car troubles. Keep at it and keep all the paperwork. Does your state have a Lemon Law? It sucks but you have to keep at them.

    Good Luck!!!!!

  6. Marinka, yup, that would be a good thing!
    Shelle.. so funny!
    Amy, you bet we’re going to be firm! If we’re going to fork over that much money for a car, they better give us something in PERFECT working order, kwim?
    Doreen, do play… and play every week! 😉
    Scott, yes, TX does have a lemon law.

  7. You know if you take it back to the dealership three times for the same problem, you can sue them. A guy my hubby works with did it. It’s the lemon law. They didn’t fix his windshield three times and it kept leaking. Now he has his whole car paid for and gets a new one every three years from the dealership!!

    Crazy huh? But yeah I hate that too!
