Just use the warranty!! If the car is out of warranty when you bought it, dont expect them to fix it.
If you bought the extended warranty , then it should cover it, so you need to use it.

Try talking to the manager and if he is helpless, file a complain with BBB http://mbc.bbb.org/

It was not the quantity of posts it was based on quality.

Only a few ROOGP are left on RS as most of the ROOGP got fed up of the BS that the new breed of Post Whores are putting up in here.

i guess best way is to email or file an complain to the HQ in TO, they take this things seriously, as i had to send in an evaluation documents when i bought my fx last month.
try to threaten him with it see if it works?

good luck

I dont get what the big deal is, the OP bought a car that was out of manufacturers' warranty. So any repairs arent covered.

But if he bought the extended 4 yr warranty, then it should be covered.

why's this thread getting so long and complicated??

Except the OP bought 4 years warranty and refused to use it for this repair. LOL.

gawd it is covered, read the posts...

The problem is if he uses it, he's worrying that he won't get the money back, based on what the dealer said he doesn't have to, but now dealer is not respecting his promise.

IMO if its only 2000 you might as well use it, and also not worry so much

you bought the warranty for a reason so use it.

Why did you pay $2k for warranty expecting to not make a claim to get your money back?
If you're looking forward to receiving the $2k after 4 years, you should've dumped $2k into GIC or a savings account.

If I'm not mistake with contract law and especially with motor dealers. You have a right to break the contract with them within 30 days. Therefore, you can use that to your advantage if you feel the car isn't right.

My issue isn't not using the warranty, it's that he said he'd take care of any problems in a month and now he's not so why should i use my warranty? what if nothing else happens from now until i sell my car, i could get that 2000 back.

Also this isn't an Infiniti Dealership but it's something along those lines.

I'm going to call their head office and see if they'll fix it. if not i'll just use my warranty and use it for everything after that.

if anything wasnt written on paper, you dont really have a valid argument.

its basically the salesmans word against yours.

Plus if it wasnt a Infiniti dealership, complaining to infiniti wont do shit, b/c a third party dealership could care less if you complained.

all i can say is, you're stuck with using your warranty. Just hope more things go wrong so you can take full advantage of your warranty

The car is used people! There are going to be issues. The responsibility goes to the buyer to make sure everything is in working condition when buying as-is. Thats why some people prefer buying new and thats what extended warranties are for!
