Should I or shouldn't I?

Hey guys,

Well my car repairs are going slow- the side door trim that the dealer was supposed to put it still hasent been done. The good news is that they are supposed to do the clutch today..they're supposed to come and pick it up and drop it back off for me, but i have this gut feeling that they'll tell me it isn't ready and i'll be stuck here- i work 30 miles away from home with no other way to get back than with my car- so I'm thinking should I or shouldn't i?

I mean how common is it for this crap to happen when buying a used car? The dealer still has not registered my car at the dmv under my name, repairs are still pending etc etc...I feel like they don't want to sell me the car. I'm buying a car through a bank loan, all they need to do is register my car under my name and they get their 5858 dollar check and were done, but they're not doing it...My loan expires in 60 days, more like 50 now, we've already signed the contract, i've already traded my car in to them...is this regular procedure, is this just slow dealing or do you guys think they're trying to find a way to f me over? I really feel like i'm gonna give them the car and they're gonna come back and tell me that its not ready at the end of the day and i'll have to sleep at my office....grrr

man that sucks to hear...

You should demand they fix your car, get your car ready on time. Hassle them...it's your money after all.


...oh, and every used car comes with its surprises...trust me on that noise lol!

oh dude shut up, don't make me even more paranoid, lol! I cancelled for today, I said i'd be there on saturday so I can watch them do it- I want to make sure they put honda parts in there. You know, i could do it for alot cheaper cause the clutch grabs like its holding titties, its just the throw out bearing thats worn. But since were opening it and someone else is paying half the price i might aswell get another clutch, lol- keep the old one incase i break this one. Keep your fingers crossed though pls!!!

If your having another clutch put in, why not get a good aftermarket clutch and lighter flywheel while your in there.

dealer won't help me" upgrade" parts. Plus I want stock- i've heard nothing but good things about the stock clutch, I've actually heard that some after markets clutches get ripped up in there for some reason. thanks for the support prelude13 :D

Sigh- Hopefully my clutch gets done this saturday Grrr, I already got butterflies. If s**t keeps hitting the fan I might just go and get me a subaru or mitsubishi lancer =\ I really like this gd car but jesus I don't have the time for all this running around, i'm way too busy

Man let me tell you, chicks dig this car- they have no clue what it is but when i drive around hollywood i'm always getting looks and they don't even look at me they look at the car!!! grrr

So check it out- i go on saturday at 8 30 am like asked, i wait for an hour and a half they tell me come back at 1 to be done by 2, i'm like fine. I go at 1 and they tell me it'll be done before six, leave it here and don't stick around cause we don't want people to watch us work- my friend went with me and over heard them saying that they werent going to resurface the flywheel and by the way they were talking i don't think they were even gonna change the clutch ,just throw out bearing. I was like "yeaah...no..." they had this dirty ass place with junk everywhere it looked like a chop chop =\ So i'm gonna just get half the money from them and i'll take it to where i want, screw it.
