Angry Atchison Automotive Group sells LEMONS

I purchased a 2005 car six months ago and now the transmission is going out and they are leaving me high and dry! I called and hoped that they would help with the cost when I really feel like they should fix the transmission for FREE!!!!! They say I should have purchased the extended warranty - I say that you shouldn't sell such crappy cars that the transmission would go out in six months! Be very cautious if you are planning on purchasing a vehicle from this dealership.

Unwilling to even try and work with me on this - I did not ruin the transmission in 6 months. I PURCHASED A LEMON FROM ATCHISON AUTOMOTIVE GROUP and will keep blogging about it.

Rep: 96 Kenny McCormick will become famous soon enough

Six months is far too long to claim the dealer sold a bad used car. It worked just fine when you bought it, no? If so how the hell were they 'sposed to know it was gonna break half a year later?
Tired Iron ain't got no time to wear out...

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

On the used blazer i bought, the rear drums failed a 100 miles after I bought it. I didn't blame the dealership, just bad luck is all.
My rides:
--2012 Chevy Sonic LT hatch back w/1.4 liter turbo w/100k
--2005 Chrysler Pacifica w/175k - SOLD!
--1987 Chevy R10 Pickup w/80k
--1997 4.3L Chevy Blazer w/193k- SOLD!
--1998 Oldsmobile Aurora w/190k - SOLD!
