TAKATA RECALL UNKNOWN MY CAR STALLED OUT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND I LEFT IT THERE TO BE PICKED UP BY MY MECHANIC THE NEXT MORNING. I FOUND OUT THE NEXT DAY THAT MY CAR HAD BEEN CRASHED AND I WENT TO THE TOW YARD WHERE THE VEHICLE HAD BEEN TAKEN TO RETRIEVE MY PERSONAL ITEMS FROM THE VEHICLE AND NOTICED THAT MY AIRBAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. MY CAR HAS BEEN CONSIDERED A TOTAL LOSS BY GEICO CAR INSURANCE. GEICO CLAIM NUMBER [XXX]. I STILL HAVE MY TITLE, IT IS A REBUILT ONE. GEICO HAS BEEN TAKING THEIR SWEET TIME TO REIMBURSE ME FOR MY VEHICLE. THE ACTUAL ACCIDENT OCCURRED ON APRIL 25TH, 2017. THE POLICE REPORT IS INACCURATE. TODAY IS AUGUST 30TH, 2017 AND I'M STILL WAITING ON A CHECK. THE TOW YARD HAS APPARENTLY BECOME THE LIENHOLDER SO I'VE BEEN TOLD AND GEICO HAS TO PAY THEM OFF BEFORE THEY CAN PAY ME? I DON'T KNOW IT'S CRAZY. THERE WOULD BE NO LIEN IF GEICO HAD HANDLED THIS IN A TIMELY MANNER. I HAVE HAD TO COME OUT OF POCKET TO PURCHASE A CHEAP CAR IN THE MEANTIME WHILE I WAIT. I HAVE JUST RECENTLY RECEIVED EMAILS FROM CARFAX SAYING THAT MY CAR MAY BE AT RISK OF BEING RECALLED SO I PUT IN MY VIN NUMBER ([XXX]) AND IT SAYS THAT MY CHRYSLER 200 2012 IS A S61. HOWEVER, I WAS AWARE THE PASSENGER SEATBELTS WERE LOCKED BUT I WAS STILL ABLE TO WRAP THE DRIVER'S BELT AROUND ME. FURTHERMORE, I'VE HAD NUMEROUS HEADLIGHT ISSUES IN BOTH HEADLIGHTS AND THE AC EVENTUALLY STOPPED WORKING. THERE WAS ALSO A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THAT COULD NOT BE TURNED OFF. I SPOKE WITH CHRYSLER AND THEY TOLD ME NOTHING CAN BE DONE AS FAR AS REIMBURSEMENT AT THIS POINT BECAUSE I HAVE NO POSSESSION OF THE VEHICLE. HOWEVER, THE TITLE IS STILL IN MY NAME AND THE POSSESSION ISSUE IS GEICO'S FAULT. I AM LOOKING FOR SOME TYPE OF JUSTICE IN THIS SITUATION IT COULD HAVE BEEN ME IN THE CRASH. I AM [XXX] AND IT SAYS UNDER FEDERAL LAW THAT MY VEHICLE CAN BE REPLACED. #16V-668 INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
