What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?FL
Last week I drove my 16 yr old son to a dealership he found online to buy a car. The dealership is approx. 2 hrs away.
The car that he was interested in was there and due to his age, he could not test drive the car, but the owner took him for a ride. After lifting the hood and checking out the brakes, oil and all that stuff, my son decided this is the car he wanted (he has a job and has been saving for the down payment and will be making the payments) and I put the car in my name. My son was to follow me since we were in a much larger city than what he was used to driving in. Once we got on the turnpike, he called me and said his speedometer didn't work. I told him to stay behind me and we would stop at the next rest area. Sure enough speedometer didn't work, odometer read the same mileage that the disclosure statement said when we left the dealer.
I immediately called the dealer and he told us it should work they just replaced the speedometer sensor module and that it may have disconnected. He said to have my son check the connection and pin.
Anyhow, my son or husband can not get it to work. We have called the dealer where we bought the car and he says he does not know what to tell us, take it to a Honda dealer and see if they can fix it.
Now my question. Shouldn't we have been told about the new module and why it was replaced? I pulled a car fax report and supposabley this car has only been driven 90 miles in 5 months, but has been registered in WPB, then Orlando. Something doesn't sound right.
Would appreciate any advise on what our next step should be.
