So I'm looking at a $500 repair on a crap vehicle. I stand by the statement that this is the worst vehicle I've ever owned.
Certified means they looked at it before putting it on the lot,nothing more.Carfax is a joke and has been for years.I ran a carfax on my Jeep and one thing is one there and that is one recall that was done,nothing about the $5500 hail damage and nothing about my VIN being flagged for being ecessively modified.About 75% of anything that should be reported does not as no one has to report it to places like carfax and most don't as it's a waste of time.

With that being said you just do not know when something will fail,every part of any vehicle will fail and that is a fact but when is a crap shoot.

This is why I couldnt get myself to buy the optional extended warranty on the last used car I bought (Volvo). They couldn't produce literature showing me exactly what components were covered and I didn't trust it. To a consumer, a throttle body is part of the powertrain. Afterall the motor couldn't operate without it. And yet somehow the warranty can get around it. At least the chrysler contracts specifically list all the items covered, and I believe the throttle body (on the Liftetime One) is covered.

Well, every make/model of car has a few people who feel the way you do about their vehicle. Sorry you got a bad one. I have the Compass and have had no problems. Certified simply means it was fine when it left the lot, not that it was well cared for before that!
