i think im gona get fooked..

..over really really really bad
most of you may know that my last motor hydrolocked and my insurance took care of it.

well the dealership i took it at, which is the worst dealership(Bert Ogden Mission Mazda) ever, still managed to put the oil filter that contained some water on to the new motor, and didnt align the clutch. i told my insurance and they failed to do anything about it.
well recently (thurs.) i was driving towards houston to go work on another oil rig, when my clutch and throw out bearing start to give out on me. the whole car vibrates like theres no tomorrow and every time i change gears i hear some metal clanking. at first i thought it was the mounts cuz they were shot, got those replaced before i took off for work but it was still acting up.

so im stranded, 29 mi. outside Corpus Christi. i call my insurance adjuster and let him know whats going on. he gets me a tow truck from back at home (which would be a good 3hrs away) but they wanted to charge me $500, i turned them down. i let my adjuster know what happened with the tow truck and whats wrong with the car, he tells me hes gonna call me back to try and get some one from Corpus, he never calls me back.
i call my rig manager and he didnt sound to happy, most likely i got fired. i had no one to help me. i decide to get in the car and try to drive it, thank god that it made it home.

right now its at another mazda dealer, though another adjuster told me that they will check it out but if its a wear and tear item that they are not gonna pay for anything and it will be charged to me. i told him that the clutch is a wear and tear item but its still new(and aftermarket along with the flywheel) not even 4mo. installed, and barely a month on this motor( i checked both clutch and flywheel before it was installed and still looked brand new, no wear and tear). he did say that if they find any damage that they will try and charge the other dealer ship. though iv had extensive problems with the other dealer(Bert Ogden Mission Mazda), i put one bad service report because they didnt want to warranty the faulty trans and wanted to void the warranty, so the store manager told the service manager that if i ever come back for them not to work on my car.

im really pissed off and considering on getting a lawyer especially if they try to make me pay out of my pocket.
im also worried because theres no speed certified dealers around here, closest would be San An/Corpus Christi, though my friend is gonna take his speed3 to get his trans warrantied. he told me they have his trans already, but the comp would lock and kick out the parts mngr. when i tried ordering some speed accessories. kinda fishy for me, especially if he keeps having problems hes gonna end up getting screwed.

well if you read this far i thank you and any input advice on my situation would be helpful

Re: i think im gona get fucked..

Speed certified dealerships are BS, they sell them, they fix them.

Clutches are moving parts as are the flywheel and usually are not covered by the OEM's.

Good luck with keeping the job.

What's the use of happiness? It can't buy you money.

You don't even necessarily have to actually get a lawyer involved, just tell them you'll call yours (remember, they don't know whether or not you've got one), as long as they don't call your bluff you might still get the changed tune you're looking for
