WE have had rather cold weather recently and my car hasn't gotten very good gas mileage in the past two-four weeks.
Little did I know that something horribly wrong was happening.
I pulled onto the entrance ramp to merge into traffic on the interstate early one morning only to reach 60 mph & have the car completely stop and nearly getting rear ended by numerous cars. After shaking so badly and trying to catch my breath I finally got the car off the side of the road to a safe distance and had a "fall apart"!
I couldn't wait to reach work to call the mechanic and ask what I should do.
I was told to drive it in and they would check it.
I did as I was told- I drove it in and put it on the computer for diagnostic test- which revealed: bad injectors and coil (6 injectors- 6 cylinders) to the tune of $900.00 (and I'm a PREFERRED CUSTOMER!) or so it says on the decal in my window. I inquired about my extended warranty & guess what- it expired with 2006. I didn't have any recourse, but to have it fixed as after all it's a $30,000 car.
I feel stupid because I've been duped and it appears others have as well.
My One and Only Maxima- I'll not be guilty of buying another-
Oh and by the way while I was kept in the waiting area of the shop, I was approached by a salesman who stated " Boy that's a great car why don't you trade it for a new one $ 38,000 + extras."
"I told him NO THANKS!"
