new engine but they been giving me the same
story that they’re just waiting since December
20 . It doesn’t sound right But then again I
don’t know much about the auto repair
business. My car falls  under the recall 162
where Sounds like a constant knocking.Issues
with the connecting rods and bearings. my car
unable to go uphill.And when the service
engine light comes on after scanning the code
it says camshaft needs replacement but I was
told at the dealership that is wrong and that
my whole entire engine is needing
replacement . And no loaner car offered .I’ve
been without a car since December 20th.  The
service manager keeps telling me the same
thing this is waiting in process.they keep
telling me that they’re waiting for approval for
the new engine I don’t know anybody’s gone
through this process or this problem and I’m
hoping someone can help me Give me some
good advice what I should do or who I should
contact. It sucks sometimes being a girl not
having any help with Auto Repairs and

trying to figure out what is the possible hidden
agenda .I haven’t even been quoted an out-

has some suggestions .. insight,hope ,
