Tonys Auto Sales sold me a car that will not pass DEQ – I bought my 1999 Daewoo Leganza from Stan at Tony's Auto Sales on December 17th 2009 for $2,500.00. I have had nothing but issues with this car since the day after I purchased it. On the day after I purchased it, I was driving it to work and it broke down.
Fortinately, my boyfriend was able to get it semi-repaired so we could drive it down to Tonys. They told us we need to take it throug DEQ and if it failed, they might fix the issue. Tonys had the EGR valve repaired on it. We took it back to DEQ about 2 weeks later, and it failed again. We consulted our own mechanic to repair the issue, another $300 down the drain.
Just recently, last week my check engine light came on when I was moving my car from one parking spot to another and smelled this smell that smells like a thousand farts. We took it to a mechanics shop who told us the 02 sensor has no activity coming out of it, the exhuse has a crack in it and it needs a new muffler and the heater core is broken which would cost a little more then $1,000.00 to replace. We took it back to Tonys yet again, was given the run around and was told someone would give us a call. 4 days later, which happens to be today, my boyfriend got a call from Mike, I dont know if hes the owner or the manager but he told us the issue is out of his hands because its been 3 months since we purchased the car.
Well actually, its been a little over 2 months since it was purchased and we still cannot pass DEQ and to my understanding, a car dealership cannot sell a car if it will not pass DEQ. I wish I would of done business elseware. I highly regret doing business with this company because its been nothing but hassles and Tony's is not even attempting to make it right.
I will be filing a complaint with the DA's office regarding this.
