STEERING

9/9/2014 - CALLISBURG, TX
AFTER RECEIVING MY CAR FROM THE REQUIRED RECALL ON THE STEERING ASSIST MOTOR, I NOTICE THAT THERE WAS AN EXTREME AMOUNT OF "PLAY" IN THE STEERING. THIS ALMOST CAUSED 2 COLLISION WITHIN THE FEW HOURS I HAD RECEIVED MY CAR FROM THE DEALER. I IMMEDIATELY TOOK MY CAR BACK TO THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD I WOULD HAVE TO PAY THEM 69.95 FOR THEM TO LOOK AT THE PROBLEM, I DECLINED. A COUPLE DAYS LATER I WAS CONTACTED BY THE DEALER AND IN CONCLUSION THEY DENIED THAT THE PROBLEM IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE RECALL. IT WOULD COST ME TO REPAIR THE PROBLEM. THE DEALER KNOWINGLY ALLOWED TO PUT ME AND MY FAMILY MEMBERS AT RISK OF INJURY. I HAVE HAD THE CAR REPAIRED, BY RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET AND FOUND THAT THE SOLUTION WAS TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY CABLE FOR ABOUT AND HOUR. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY THE DEALER AND THEY CHOSE TO PUT $70.00 OVER THE LIFE OF MYSELF OR A FAMILY MEMBER.
