Oh geez, so much wrong in such little time

Let me just say my car has around 7300 miles and I've owned it since it came off the truck in january (2013)

I've had some issues since then
Passenger seat lever broke 3 times, still not fixed.
Passenger pony light went out, fixed but now both pony lights have water in them.
Driver power seat went out when this 360lb rhino service tech drove my car
Third gear is sticking
and the paint is bubbling on the hood and front bumper REALLY bad.

I've taken it in several times and I can't believe so much has gone wrong in such little time.

I hope they take me serious when I go in tomorrow. I understand it MAY not be a big deal to some, but the paint bubbling really bad and having transmission problems this early scares me.

Haha I doubt itll be considered a lemon at all! but yeah I just wish they would permanently fix it all, dont want a new car but if more things pile up then I will have to sell or ask for my money back, I have over $2000 in mods though.

From personal experience with my now old 97 f150lighting i would keep on them day and night until everything is fixed.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease if you complain long enough. But best of luck, hopefully they fix the paint issue. Sounds like a bad batch of primer or sealant they used when painting the car.

well the paint is a common issue on those cars, it held up the delivery of many back in 11, and uhh the transmission? Probably the start of more fights since Ali ....

Hey notaV8,

Man, sorry to hear about all the problems.

Also, isn't it time to correct your signature if you have a v8 now?

Your hood is bubbling already? Man, it usually takes around 3 years for it to become apparent. Right around the time that your bumper to bumper warranty is up.

I was washing my car and I felt the hood and bumper to be very bumpy as if I was leaving tons of dirt behind but if I drop my towel I just grab a new clean one to avoid scratches and I sprayed it down and the paint is just coming off! There's a HUGE bubble by the driver headlight, I'll take some pics but thanks for the advice.

So an update, they kept the car from monday through thursday, I told them not to drive nor abuse it, i reset the trip B on the LCD when I left the car there, they "drove" it for 17 minutes for 1.3 miles and used .4 gas giving me I think it said 3.2 miles per gallon.... so they probably left tons of tire marks everywhere(as I expected) and they fixed half the stuff, just the seats and the lever already fell off again... wow what piece of crap service. The loaner was an impala which was ironic but fast!
