I drove home thinking about it, i think someone took advantage of me & joy rode around on prolonged test drives.How far would you test drive to check on hesitation problem knowing that a TSB exists for this problem?? As i write this i am pushing blood vessells back in my neck with my free finger.Man am i pissed.How should i present this to the manager when i call him.
hmmmm, sounds like what happened to me with a prior car. Took the car to a dealer, on a monday, told him I would pick it up on Tuesday evening, and actually went in at Tuesday noon, sales man was not there, car was not there, keys we nowhere to be found, and was told the sales man would be in late tuesday, the dealer ship called him, when I was there at noon, no answer. Still do not know what or where it was, and they then lied and said come back tomorrow and it will be ready, and it was locked up in the back. Well I even checked the back, no car. Guess the guy took it home to take his wife and 4 kids cruising in the convertible for a day. They left me an empty tank, not even enough for 10 miles. The next day I looked at the vert tp handles, and they were over the headliner, not under the headliner. There was no need to even touch the vert top. Go figure, it is a hard thing to prove.
Could be the took it home to check it out (an excuse the use) and take the family out riding.
It pissed me off BIG TIME.
55 miles is a lot to take for a test drive, and these jerks, sometimes just let it idle for hours, not good for an engine, slam doors, touch the paint, etc.
