Who did I purchase the Vibe CD player from?

I purchased a Vibe CD from a Genvibe member last week. I can't for the life of me remember who it was. I owe this person and would like to pay them back but I can't remember who it was. I know I'm losing my mind. Hopefully that person will see this and respond. For anyone that's interested I purchas...

A dealer is going to say it would void your warranty. They lose money when you don't come in every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. The more you come in the more they make.

A dealer will do what ever you want for a price. You might be better off looking for a wrecked Toyota Celica, Toyota MR2, Vibe or Matrix from a junk yard. Buy it's transmission and then have someone or yourself install it.

Not changing your oil is not grounds for voiding your warranty. It would have to be proven through oil analysis that the oil was the cause of the failure. If the oil analysis came back "still good for continued use" the warranty by law would have to be kept.There are federal laws that protect owners...
