Engine malfunction,

Got the dreaded message yesterday. Took her to the dealer as I have 3 weeks remaining on my CPO. they called and told me that mice have been eating away at some throttle actuator wires and I need to pay $600 to fix it! I was clearly disappointed at this time, figuring that the reason for the malfunction was the actual actuators. 3 hours later he calls and said "good news", you don't owe use anything and weverything are going to replace your throttle actuators! Tears of joy! I was pretty persistent initially when he said it was mice and my first response was, Imy not interested in paying $600 for us to find out after that it was the actuators from the get go! Happy ending to a long week!

So the mice story was just made up? Hard for that explanation to be an honest mistake.

That's what I was thinking. Also, $600 to repair some wires?

Diagnosis, new wire loom replacement...sounds cheap for dealer rate imo

Although I've seen mice chew through wires in the past... this sounds more like the dealer wanted to make a little extra cash while replacing your TAs.

agreed. Do they have any pictures to show you? I mean it would be a fairly simple request if they have the manifold off and waiting for you to let them know what to do next.
