When I bought my car some time last year everything seemed fine but after a few months things started to go wrong on the car. It began with me constantly having to get the oil changed the tires were bad the car started making noises that I couldn't explain and the tires in the tires in the back were constantly busting. The engine is now going bad and I have bought at least 10 sets of tires for the back in this year alone. I don't have the money to keep putting in this car and continue to pay the lease off for it as well. Its getting absolutely ridiculous.
