2013 Chevy trax

Asked by GuruSKXCX Jun 07, 2019 at 12:15 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought my 2013 Chevy trax in
January 2013 at a dealer and a full
diagnostic report/test was reported
as done and no issues.  May 2018 I
had a huge bill for turbo pipes leaking
and fittings etc broken exhaust studs
and no coolant!  Over $1000.00 and 4
hours of labor.  Would/should this not
of been shown in the diagnosis?  And
I just had another issue with oil
leaking from behind heat wrap on
pipe and leaking everywhere.  
Covered by extended warranty but
again why wasn’t this caught on now
two diagnosis since January 2019.
Any ideas ?

Do you really expect a dealer to be responsible for problems today when you bought the car sis years ago. Or is this a misprint?

Sorry it should read January 2019 - I couldn’t find edit anywhere. It was actually January 29 2019.


You bought a 2013 Chevy Trax in January 2019 and had repairs done in May 2018? Are you seeing the problem here?

Geez ... I was sure I had dates correct. Bought January 2019 Problem and fix May 2019 Just wondering if two full diagnosis done in January 2019 and then May 2019 should of caught the problem.


With all you fixed in May, just four months after purchase, the dealer should have caught this prior to sale. Tell the dealer that his pre-sale diagnostics report was a fake and demand he reimburse you for the repair costs. Prior to that, you should have a mechanic go over the car, will probably cost a couple hundred bucks, and find everything that's wrong. You might have more to talk to the dealer about.
