Automotive Expert
ok tell me more about what they are saying is unrepairable

They are saying that those lights are internal malfunctions that can't be fixed
Automotive Expert
thats crazy, it sounds like whoever was working on it doesn't know what they are doing, have you talked to the service manager about this?

I have and he's saying that there's nothing they can do and offered me $1k for the vehicle
Automotive Expert
wow what a scam place, thats a insult, I hate to say it but they are just bad people and you will need to take this to a different dealer to get diagnosed and fixed properly

there's no information you guys can offer?
Automotive Expert
unfortunate no it needs to be diagnosed in person to be able to tell you the problem, I can give a educated guess and say I think its a steering angle sensor or cluster from what your saying

Automotive Expert
Your very welcome
