Customer Question
I recently purchased a used...
I recently purchased a used car that was considered preused certified and was told ot has to pass 128 points of inspection to qualify. Driving home the car had issues took it in to "fix it" it still has issues and come to find out it did not pass all 128 points it actually failed 2 I got service records and no work was done they couldn't even diagnose my car and had to send it to someone else to partially fix it now I'm stuck with a crappy car paying more thinking it was better

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
