I got a couple problems, HELP!

OK I just got my 2000 GTS Saturday, and i noticed a couple of things... first the check engine light was on, and the dealer thinks it might be the o2 sensor. SHould i go to a toyota place and get it checked or take it back to the dealer and see what we can do? and 2nd, when im accelerating, the rear end feels like its kidna sliding and bouncing around alot, what should i do about that? same as above, take it to toyota or the dealer? any input would be appreciated, thanx!

Did you get a warranty? If you did, then have them take care of it. If not, have it scanned and see what it is that is causing the CEL. Then go from there. And for the back end, is the car lowered? You might need a camber kit, or at least have it aligned.

He's right, you should have made them fix all that before you bought it. I would have. I made the dealer replace the winshield before I bought it. You should have told them it was a safety issue. If you bought it "as is" then I hope you didn't pay too much for it.

sorry took so long to reply. yea i bought a 3 year warranty so they should fix all that, but the guy told me to take it back to the dealership and hes gonna fix all the crap thats wrong with it right now. im used to driving a truck so it could be that im not used to a car with the handling but im still gonna get that checked out.

Just wait and find out if the CEL is actually for the o2. Don't start pulling shit out if it ain't broke. I'd say its better to be sure first.
