Complaint: Four months ago I purchased a ********** from Amato car company on **** ********** **. They told me because it was used, being a 2002 that I could bring it in for a short while before the warranty time ran out. Well I kept actually bringing it in from the first week of purchase for a window that would not roll up with power. Plus there has been other reasons why I had to bring it in, and now my transmission is out, and they wish to charge me from $2,500. to $4,500. to fix it.I don't have this since, I had just made to purchase in Feb 2012, and it June 2012.
Desired Settlement: I think that I have a very bad deal, and would like a car replacement of a new car, my money back to start all over some where else.
Business Response: We have contacted Ms Knox and agreed to perform the repairs on her vehicle at a discounted rate and we will finance the repair,since her vehicle was out of the 30 day powertrain warranty.
