|POS has been at dealer since last Wednesday. Covered by warranty, but I may see what they will give me for it before it leaves the lot. I really do not like this car. Bought it with 19k on it 20 months ago. Got 45k now, have done all brakes, tires, now this. The general maintenance on the car is not worth it. Needless to say, I am so sick of the car. To top it off, they got me a rental car, a KIA RIO. It has been sitting in my office parking lot since Thursday, I refuse to drive it. Not their fault, but Hertz.|
Wait. What? You're sick of the car because you've had one warranty issue? Brakes and tires are wearable items. They wear out because you used them and they did their job. 15 seconds of google work returned complaints from Pontiac, Lincoln, BMW, and Honda owners who have had to get brake work done after only 30k miles.
I suggest buying a hybrid since the regenerative brakes last for 100k or more and the low rolling resistance tires average about 60k.
It could be worse...you could've bought a Kia Rio like the one you won't even drive for free.
