A day or two after the car came home, the check-engine light came on.
The car was sent back to the workshop immediately, and then stayed there for many weeks. The workshop was unable to identify the cause of the check engine light, and ‘opened up’ the engine within a week of our purchase.
Unfortunately, they didn’t know how to put it back together. The car never worked correctly after that.
Each part was inspected – and since then, nearly every major component of the engine has been pointed to as a source of the problem – and fixed after waiting about 2 weeks or so each time for the parts. But the car still doesn’t run.
