Hello! My saturn dealership replaced frt wheel bearing in 2008/also recommended I have an alignment done as well. In 2010, both front wheel bearings were replaced by an AAA local mechanic, to the tune of $900, one month apart. The mechanic told me that if I had future front wheel bearing noise, the receipt provided me with a warranty number that would replace them for free. I asked him why the one replaced in 2008 wasn't warranted and he referred me back to the dealership; how do I know what parts/work is warranted and when to ask these? Thanks for any info you can provide as it seems the more I keep my car away from the mechanic, the better off am and saves on addt'l repairs!
Also, my saturn mileage reads 123,000. Do I have to have timing belt changed; windshield wiper pump makes noise as I'm pushing steering column to spray fluid but no fluid coming through front and back wiper ports; do I need new reservoir pump?
THANKS! I'm a female but regret not enrolling in car maintenence courses in high school as I'm encountering unscrupulous repair personnel through the years.
have the same problem?
