The salesman went on and on about how thoroughly they check things over and how they don't sell "junk" and how well they stand behind things and how they know the importance of word of mouth as to their reputation. The day we picked up the car the check engine light went on on the way home, so we turned around had had it looked at. They couldn't find anything wrong and said it was fine. When it came on a day or so later, we made an appointment to have it looked at again, and no problems were found. So we were skeptical right from the day we drove it home.
