So for the past few months i have been lucky enough to be driving my moms 01' MB e-wagon, it was AWD, good gas millege, fit all my stuff with plenty of extra room, but she took that back so i bought a car of my own yesterday. Its a 00' nissan pathfinder with 75k, in great condition, i though, but overall a nice car. I bought it for a legitimate Ford/Nissan dealership, was told the car was in perfect mechanical condition ran fine blah blah blah blah blah. So today im driving home coming down this 2.5 mile hill, doing maybe 40, all the sudden my car dies as im about to turn, i lost brakes steering everything. i quickly yanked the e-brake, put it in N, and tried to start it, it turned on long enough for me to skid to a hault and park on the side of the road, then died again.
After this, i called my house but no one was home, my parents cells, no answer, friends, everyone, but no one answered. Finally after 20 minutes i said fuck it, all call the po, i dial the non emergency number and tell him my story. Before even asking if i was alright the officer tells me "we dont give out rides thats not our job" then he proceeded to yell at me and tell me he will tow my car if its in a hazerdos sp? location. WTF, there job is to protect and serve the community, fuck them they are just power hungry bitches that need to get a reality check. Finally, when im 30 minutes past curfew my mom calls, i tell her where i am and i got a ride home.
My main question after this huge ordeal is do i have any leverage with the car dealership. It has a 60 day/3000 miles limited warrenty, so they better fix it for free, but right now im pissed off and have a migrain and want more, i know its a dick thing, but can i get anything out of this situation, i just feel tricked
