I took all your advice and apped DCU. Approved for a car loan for 2.49. Great. I bought a new-to-me car exactly one month ago. Jan. 24th. Nice Volvo, 2011 with 40K miles.Everything was going well until last week when I heard a noise that was kinda scary, sounding like rubbing metal. It was loud, lasted for about 10 seconds. During that time, the gauges on the dash were all normal and the car felt fine. Then the noise stopped. Today, the same thing again. To me, it sounds like the sound you hear when the rotors are worn, but wouldn’t they have checked that before they sold me the car and put new brakes and rotors on? The car passed inspection! I’m really steamed about this. Can a car-savvy CBer tell me what recourse I have? I really did not expect to have to put new brakes/rotors on a quality used car that I’ve only had for one month! And it’s still under the dealer’s limited warranty but I believe that excludes brakes. The car’s only been driven about 700 miles, for goodness sakes, and about 200 of that was driving the car back home from where I bought it in Jersey. And I’m saying brakes/rotors because that’s what it sounds like to me. I guess it could be much worse? What do I do? What can I say to the dealer to get them to take care of this – or am I SOL? That would suck. Your advice is appreciated and desperately needed. Thanks so much.
