hello. im from Mexico City.
its been 4 days since i took my BRAND NEW CLIO SPORT form the dealreship
i WAS being careful with the engine, since it WAS new.
when i reached 100miles i started to rev it a little more... @ like 7krpm... but that WAS twice
one day i was drivin @ like 60mph when all of a sudden this A-hole stops in front of me. so i had to apply the brakes and change from 3rd, to 2nd, then 1st...
everything normal. revs didnt passed 4krpm. so then again. accelerate somewhat hard... not passin 5krpm. so there goes 1st... 5k, 2nd... 5k and when i passed 3rd i felt something like the engine pushed a sec and then the SERV light turns on along with the POWER or BATTERY, dunno how u call it; power is NULL. the gas pedal is not workin, steer gets very hard, barely made in the turn and slowly reachs 0mph
i switch off the car and try to start it again... NOTHIN. DEAD.
dunno what happened. but renault techs say I blew up the engine and the reason. accordin to them is that I switched from 1st to 3rd.
I say thats NONSENSE. I did NOT do that, of course. and i DID NOT do nething to blow the engine. its neeeeeeew! it reads 407kms... = 254miles
so now they want ME to pay for the repairs...
so what do i do? how can i defend myself. ive seen cases like these, somewhar alike but they have FAR MORE mileage.. HELP plz
