Vehicle: 1997 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 2dr Convertible AWD

I bought the car used with 9,500 miles on it. Thought buying through a dealer was the right thing to do. <B>WRONG!!! </b> At just over 15k miles, the shift fork for 1 and 2 gear cracked. Called Porsche, wrote letter. They said the original cast fork had a known weakness. They paid the $150 for replacement with a new, updated, forged piece- I got stuck with the $4600 labor and misc. parts bill. This dealer is horrible and I would <u>never</u> recommend them to anyone.<p><b>BUYER BEWARE</b>
