Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty
Apparently a total engine failure... the car only has 50,800 miles on it! it was running fine...a bit rough (thought it was just the "truck" feel)...then yesterday...REALLY rough with clanging, etc.
Mechanic said it needs a rod bearing, head gasket...??? 50K miles and a blown engine?
I bought the car "as is" from a Volvo dealership...drove it only 1800 miles (2.5 months)...do I have ANY recourse?
The laws vary by state. Check your lemon laws, with it only be 4 years old you may be able to get a repair history on it and have it lemoned out. Also, check with your dealership and see if there is anything they will do to retain your business. Also, read the fine print on your agreement, it may have a loophole in it you can get out on. a bad rod bearing sounds like it ran out of oil, check your oil and see if it has water in it or oil in the water, that would confirm the blown head gasket.
YOu really dont have alot of options, you pretty much at the mercy of the dealership. I had bought a bad car once and the dealer was willing to take it back for what I paid, however mine did stil run.
