My son bought this car, 2 days later the check eng. Light came on, he took it to Autozone to have the code read, it said O2 sensor, he took it to Firestone, they replaced all 4 sensors. $460 later he drives out of the parking lot of Firestone, eng. Light comes back on, he turns around and goes back, the guy said that will be $99 if you want us to hook up to diagnose but said he should go back to Autozone, so he did, it still reads O2 sensor. My son goes back to Firestone, different mech says oh its the cat. Conv. Although it never smelled like rotten eggs, so he said take it to Midas because they dont repair cat. Conv. Which is what my son did, they said thats not it but they have no idea whats wrong with it, now its driving terrible, jumping, not wanting to go when pushing the gas etc. They recommended a place down the road called All tech, they had the vehicle for 4 days and said all they can find wrong is the computer is telling them to update some things, basically reboot and upgrade? So he finally picked it up today $200 later and not even an hour after, the eng. Light is back on. I am at a loss to help him, he works and is full time college student, my husband is deployed right now and I feel like a fool if people are taking advantage of us, not sure what else to do? It seemed like a nice place but why cant they figure out what is wrong?
