Angry check engine light

I recently bought a used 2006 pac 4 days ago and as soon as I got on the highway the check engine light came on. The dealership assured me it was just because of the weather and maybe the gas cap was not on correctly, they offered to fix it and reset the engine light. Later that night the light came on again so they gave me a rental and the car is still there being fixed, thats scary to spend all that money for a vehicle that isn't going to work well

unfortunately with used cars, it is literally impossible to know when a problem will occur. I will say that your check engine light did not come on due to weather, and make sure you find out what they fixed when you get it back money for automotive maintenance.

If its just the cat I wouldn't worry. All cars need that replaced at some point. Just be thankful the dealer is taking care of it.
