Engine Mechanical problem
2009 Honda Fit 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 35000 miles
My car wouldnt start. I had it towed to the dealership and they took my engine apart telling me there was water damage and I need a new engine. I didnt run through lake michigan and cant imagine there would be water damage due to heavy rains, enough that would damage the engine beyond repair. I feel funny telling them I want to take the car back to get a second opinion. Plus, they have my engine half apart waiting for me to contact my car insurance.
When I had it towed, before I even told them what was wrong besides that it didnt start, they immediately asked me if I went through any water. I feel they immediately wanted this to be the problem so I can go through my insurance.
Is this common for this car, that it would suck water up into the engine so easily? And I dont have the funds to keep getting it towed all over, so should I trust what they are saying?
