Did I buy a lemon? Is this car worth me keeping?
I just bought a 2002 Jaguar X-Type from EZ Auto Dealership. The driver seat belt do not work, the engine light is on and the driver door kinda hesitate to open. But the car is clean inside and out, it runs very well.
I wouldn't call it a lemon with just a few issues than can be fixed quite easily. Did you get a warranty from EZ, like a 30 day or as-is? If you got a warranty, or even if you didn't take it back and see if they can fix or correct the items for you. The seat belt might need a new retractor, the CEL might be a vacuum leak or sensor, and the door needs some grease on the hinges. Small things.
I bout it as-is, but they give me an extended warranty on the trans and engine for 3 months. The car has 93,214 miles runs great so far. I just bought it on Sat.
How much do you think all of this would cost to be fixed?
A stab in the dark if someone else does the work, $300? Call your local mechanic to get some estimates.
