Sorry about your bad experience - one wonders if the previous owner abused the car. In any case, certified pre-owned is often just a marketing gimmick - a means to charging a higher price without necessarily carefully checking over the car as the advertising implies. So, it is buyer beware when buying a used car whether or not it is certified, which means having it carefully checked by a skilled independent mechanic.

This is the same old story. I recently had my 2006 Acura TL in for the 45,000 mile service and took it to the Acura Dealer in Lynwood. Car had 49,000 miles on it. Service included transmission and guess what I went into Jeff's Auto on Sand Pt way for a detail and oil change (54,600 miles) and they informed me my transmission fluid was extremely dirty and needed changing. I call the service department up in Lynwood they said bring it in and we will check it out. No way, read the reviews about this dealership and it is sorry. I will be using the internet to read reviews in the future. So Jeff's Auto tells me the oil change was done and it will cost $39.95, and I said " That sounds pretty cheap for a synthetic oil change", the guy replied it doesn't require synthetic oil. I didn't flip out, remained calm. His database indicates 5-20 motor oil. the owner's manual shows synthetic engine oil.WTF???????????????/
