Just bought used 2008 Forenza no check engine light on when we bought it on Monday, had $417 worth of work done incl. replacing timing belt, no check engine light then back on next day, back in shop and another $250 for thermostat sensor replacement and diagnosing of non-functioning A/C - said need new throttle body but couldn't be sure as no tool to diagnose. Car runs fine, no loss of power, etc., and now the A/C works although no work done to it but garage quoted $500+ as new compressor needed? We are taking it to a garage w/right diagnostic tool for better accuracy - spent $3350 for car and we are up to 4k now, plus car has a few dents (not huge but...) feeling like we got ripped off, praying this ends up to be a really good car but gas mileage doesn't even seem to be very good either :-(
