Thanks!
The bottom line is this: If they fixed it correctly, it should be operating like new. Obviously it is not. Therefore, they are under legal obligation to fix it correctly.

Exactly. As you know, it is extremely difficult to get those parts all lashed up correctly.

Ok, so if I bring this back and the problem repeats, at what point to I politely and professionally ask them for a refund or to pay to have someone else do it?

OP: Nobody can diagnose a vehicle online but going by the symptoms, it sounds like a possible transmission problem.

Oh I know. I am just trying to gain some knowledge here. Could be a transmission problem, sure. If it is though it only reinforces possible bad tech as they should have diagnosed that too. Crazy to be told one thing is wrong, get it fixed, and the problem is still there only to potentially find out it is something they didnt fix right could be be something else.

Appears you definitely had a problem with the differential.

This sounds like a different problem.

Agree. Only sometimes it just ain't that simple.

I'm not defending them but I'm also not going to accuse them of doing a half ass repair either. Take it back and give them a chance to make it right.

To add to the problem.....I noticed my Emergency Break doesnt work.

Now I never used this so it may have been broken before as I purchased this car used 8 months ago. Do they need to tackle the emergency break too?

FYI seeing them in a few days.

This is the only and final warning, stop the bickering.

The OP asked a valid question, if you have information to share regarding their car problems, you're encouraged to share that, if you intent to attack bicker and provide unhelpful comments, you will receive an infraction.

Nothing yet. I am moving this week. I called and explained the problem and they said it should be fine plus it is under warranty anyway if it got worse.
