ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

8/21/2014 - OLATHE, KS
IN AUGUST OF 2011 I PURCHASED WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A CERTIFIED PREOWNED BUICK SUPERIOR BUICK (OWNED BY HENDRICK AUTOMOTIVE GROUP, NOW RE-NAMED HENDRICK BUICK GMC CADILLAC, IT IS IN KANSAS CITY MO OFF OF STATE LINE), . I HAD NUMEROUS PROBLEMS THAT. I TRIED TO GET FIXED UNDER WARRANTY(SUSPENSION, THERMOSTAT, AIR BAGS, STEERING ETC.) OR GOOD FAITH(ONLY BRAKES) JUST TO NAME A FEW, AND TRIED TO GET A REFUND UNDER MY WARRANTY OR DIFFERENT CAR WITHIN THE FIRST 72 HOURS/150 MILES OF RESIGNING MY CONTRACT AND WAS DENIED . I MADE NUMEROUS TRIPS TO THE DEALERSHIP TO GET THESE PROBLEMS SERVICED AND WAS TOLD EVERYTIME THAT NOTHING WAS WRONG, THEY FOUND DEBRI HERE A SCREW THERE, TIGHTENED THIS, BLAMED IT ON THIS ETC. THEY NEVER FIXED OR REPLACED ANYTHING BUT A WATER PUMP AND A COUPLE OF ELECTRICAL BULBS(THE SAME ONES). AFTER AT LEAST 5 ATTEMPTS TO GET IT FIXED( PER LAWS SET FORTH) I R HAD A COUPLE OF FACE TO FACE MEETINGS WITH THE G.M./PART OWNER LOUIS FALLER. DURING THESE MEETINGS HE TELLS ME EVERYTHING FROM YOU GOT A LEMON, THAT HE BELIEVED THE CAR WAS WRECKED PRIOR, TO THAT HE FIRED A COUPLE OF EMPLOYEES FOR PUTTING BAD CARS ON HIS LOT AND NOT FIXING THEM PROPERLY UNDER WARRANTY, AMONGST OTHER THINGS. SO AFTER NO LUCK WITH A REFUND I BEGAN TO GET @ND OPINIONS WHICH UNCOVERED EVERYTHING FROM PRIOR DAMAGE TO SEVERAL THINGS WRONG WITH THE SUSPENSION IN LATE 2012 ETC. SO IN LATE 2013 AFTER ALL THE THINGS PROGRESSED TO REALLY BAD AND I GOT MY X-MAS BONUS I BEGAN FIXING IT AND REACHED OUT TO HENDRICK CORPORATE. THEY LIED TO ME AND SAID THEY WOULD GIVE ME AT LEAST THE MONEY FOR FIXING WHAT I ALREADY FIXED AND THAT I HAD TO GET REST FROM DEALERSHIP. THEY LATER TOOK IT BACK CAUSE I WASN'T SIGNING OVER NO RIGHTS BECAUSE I STILL HAD SEVERAL THOUSAND IN DAMAGES. SO I REACHED OUT G.M. CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXECUTIVE BRANCHES. THEY WERE LIKE AUTOMATED PUPPETS. PLEASE REFER TO ATTACHMENTS

IN DECEMBER OF 2013 I WAS PLAYING MUSIC IN MY VEHICLE, ( 2008, BUICK LUCERNE) THE BATTERY GOT GO DRAINED. THE THING THAT SURPRISED ME WAS THE FACT THAT AFTER, THE BATTERY WAS DRAINED THE IGNITION CEASED. I COULDNT MOVE THE KEY UP/DOWN OR IN/OUT OF THE IGNITION. I THINK THAT THIS COULD HAVE BEEN VERY SERIOUS IF I HAD LOST POWER ON THE HIGH WAY. (ALTERNATO OR BATTERY) WHEN AAA CAME ON THE SCENE AS SOON AS THEY HOOKED UP MY VEHICLE TO A PORTABLE BATTERY AND, TURNED IT ON THE KEY WAS RELEASED IMMEDIATELY.
