A few months ago, i has in a car accident and totaled my beloved Honda Fit. My parents and I soon went on the hunt for a good used car to buy with the insurance payout. We first went to a dealership in Shreveport called Chevyland. We found a GM Certified 2009 Bu with 10,000 miles a V6 for $12,500. It had qualities that my parents wanted (safety, price, etc) and qualities that i liked (the driving dynamics, the V6, automatic transmission with a manual mode, etc). We have bought 3 or 4 cars from this dealership and the same salesperson in the past so we had no reason to think that we were being mislead. That was in July of last year. I drove it for several months with no problems (other than the sucky tires that came with it). Then in the middle of November, I was going to drive to Austin for the US GP and decided to check the fluids to try to avoid a potential breakdown in the middle of nowhere. I then realized that the engine looked kind of small for a 3.6L V6, seemed to be missing 2 exhaust headers, and had the word ECOTEC printed on the engine cover. Funny enough it was the ECOTEC part that made me suspicious because a 3.6L V6 doesn't seem to conjure up images of ecological efficiency. So I checked and it turns out that it was the 2.4L I4 in my car. I was left with 2 possible explanations: 1. Gremlins replaced my V6 with an I4 after I bought it, or 2. We were lied to at the dealership. So obviously I watered down my garage, put food out after midnight, and since there weren't any cocoons or any crazy reptiles (or at least any more than usual) in the morning it couldn't have been the gremlins. We have been calling the dealership multiple times a week in the 4 months since we figured this out, and haven't gotten any answers or even an oops. I love the car, but it suck that it isn't as cool as I thought it was.
