I just took it in today for a service, since it likes cutting out randomly, then developed a problem with overheating. I really don't know much about cars so took it in. They replaced the oil and gave it a general service, but said that the airflow sensor has issues + most of the spark plugs are old. It still has this wicked issue with overheating and cutting out, only just got it home where it will sit unless if I drive it to work (half way) then drive it about 2 hours later when it's cool again to the repairs only to be robbed of more money.
I have had this car for 8mo, I bought it from a caryard and have looked after it. It has ended up just causing more problems than it's worth. I really don't know what to do anymore, I fix one problem and another one happens. The Caryard doesn't want anything to do with it and since I bought this from Nelson and now live in Christchurch it's not viable to travel back to Nelson only to hear "it's not our problem now, it's your problem lulz"
Does the Consumer Guarantees act cover anything like this? or am I left on my own?
