Yes, take it back and have that wheel and the others removed and checked. Ask that bent ones be replaced. You may end up splitting the cost as this is a used car.

How well it was cared for by the previous owner(s) is the best indicator of whether you will have more than the usual number of parts wearing out in the next 100k miles. Yes parts will begin to need...

Sounds like a fair deal. Depending on time of year and inventory I've seen 13 to 14%.

We've been car shopping over the past 30 days. Showroom traffic seems light and Indicative of slowing sales.

If you look closely the grill is correctly proportioned and sized for the car. The new grill makes me think of those early 1950's chromed beauties on some GM cars.

How long will you own the car? How many miles do you drive a year? And where do you drive?
