    So let's be extra generous here and assume that the car actually underwent the 172 point CPO inspection (2011 year form).

    The vacuum system and fuel system are included in "Engine Compartment" checks. To say they are checking these two systems is too vague. I'd like to know specifically what they check. There is clearly a supporting document behind this inspection form.

    Call me sceptical

    The more I go back and read that email the more pissed of I become... I think I am going to send a polite email back letting them know I am no longer interested in the vehicle and cross that dealer off my list of places I spend my money going forward.

    i would try and talk to the service manager first ... could just be a bad service consultant

    Re: Intake Manifold Bolts

    oh well that makes even more sense...

    talk to the service manager
    explain your concern and see what they say

    if they don't want to work with you then you've got to decide if the deal is good enough (or better than all the other options you've got) to stick with them

    i can see why they would be hesitant to do this check if there's no check engine light (or codes) and the car seems to be idling and running fine

    Good Luck
    "I Stand Corrected", another member mentioned 100 in/Lbs, and I hung onto
    that incorrect setting, However did mine at 100, and had NO ill effects,
    but could have cracked the intake ?I believe the correct setting is 89,
    but 90 would work, as the difference is NOT noticeable

    OK DD! <Tip o'the hat>

    If I heard a salesman like that, I don't know if I'd just walk out or go find the Sales Manager to tell him what a boob he has working for him.

    I'm a repeat customer. My dealer sells high quality new and used premium cars. When a buyer has a concern, they have a pad of IOU forms. I like another dealer's service department more but I do appreciate their committment to the deal.

    I went by the dealer tonight and the sales manager is going to have the service dept look at it in the morning. After 3 car purchases there I didn't think I was asking too much

    Definitely not! If they wish to sell you a 4th they should bend over backward to set your concerns aside. Honestly, how long does it take to check those bolts? Took me all of 15 min!

    Re: Intake Manifold Bolts

    Thank you very much I just tighten my own bolts and most of them were loose. I didn't have a 1/4 inch torque wrench so I ttighten them until I felt it was enough but since we don't have harbor freight up here in Canada. Can anyone recommend me a good one that I could order online? So far the car accelerates a lot better than before. For the same throttle position I used to only accelerate to about 25 mph and now I accelerate to 40. Hopefully it'll help on the gas mileage cause driving it easily only returned me about 12 mpg.
