|On December 20, 2010 I purchased a 2001 Saab 95 from Prestige Auto Sales, Inc located on 2829 Clarksville Pike in Nashville, TN.A down payment of $895.00 was paid in cash. Over the last month before purchasing the used Saab, the owner, Marc, claimed he replaced the turbocharger and abs module. Before these repairs, the car was smoking, the speedometer/odometer was not working, ABS, Brakes, TCS Off, Info Display !lights all illuminated.The Check Engine Light was also illuminated.Since the repairs, the car was not smoking and just the lights remained on. The speedometer/odometer was working.Based upon the dealer, Marc's words, hedidn't have the tools to reset the car computer after the repairs were made. He alsoclaimed the oil was changed along with the replacement of the spark plugs.|
I took possessed of the car on Monday evening around 7 pm.The car was driven to the Exxon to purchase gasoline then home.On Tuesday morning, the car was driven to work and back home.On the way home, the heater went cold and the car seems to lose power.The speedometer went zero, the oil light start flickering, the needle of the engine temperature gauge was going up and down, and the car started to shut down/shutoff on the interstate.I called the dealer's cell phone to ask why the lights were especially the oil light flickering.Hesuggested he will have the car towed at first.Later he back and said the car need to have oil.I questioned him especially since he claimed the oil was changed.I managed to get the car started again in an effort to get the next exit and off the interstate.The car would start briefly with no power and it smells as if something like rubber was burning.At this point I was afraid to drive the car and I was on a dark interstate. Several text messages were sent to the dealer.Henow claimed I damaged the car and I don't need to bring the car back to him.The car has been driven less than 60 miles since my possession.The car was purchased in good faith and based upon the words of the owner, Marc from Prestige Auto Sales. Thismorning I checked the car and the car have plenty of oil.The car still will start and cut off. He can't return phone calls. If he answered the phone, he is with a customer. He claimed hehave doneeverything by the book and I have signed an AS ISbuyers guide. It clearly states on there in bold letters AS IS NO WARRANTY. (Keep in mind, I ONLY HAD THE CAR FOR 1 DAY)
He wants me to keep in mind I have signed a contract as well for the remaining ballance $6740.47 that will be fowarded to his attorney for collection if payment is not received. He also made an offer if I want to get my car repaired, he will take it off my balance as long as it is within reason. IF is a simple fix why do he want to repair.
I will be taking the car to a reputable mechanic and deducting the repairs from balance. Until the repairs are made, the monthly payment will be placed an account for the repairs.
