ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2010, I PURCHASED A 2008 CHRYSLER SEBRING FROM A DEALERSHIP IN PLYMOUTH, WI. THE CAR HAD 19,204 MILES ON IT. THE CAR ALSO HAD BRIDGESTONE TURANZA TIRES. I TOOK MY CAR INTO TIRES PLUS FOR AN OIL CHANGE AT 22,700 MILES ON THE DASH. I WAS TOLD BY THE TECHNICIAN THAT I NEEDED NEW TIRES, BECAUSE MY TIRES HAD 3/32 OF TREAD ON THEM. ON JANUARY 28, 2011, THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE CAR SO GANDRUD INSTALLED A AUTO TRANS SHIFT LEVER INTERLOCK SPRING.THEY ALSO CHECKED TIRE PRESSURE AND SET TIRE PRESSURE. A ABOUT A MONTH LATER, I STARTED HAVING TROUBLE WITH GETTING MY KEY OUT OF THE IGNITION SWITCH. HAVING TO WIGGLE THE STEERING COLUMN TO GET IT OUT. I TOOK THE CAR BACK TO GANDRUD TO HAVE THEM CHECK IT AND THEY TOLD ME NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH IT. ON MAY 11, 2011, I TOOK MY CAR IN FOR ANOTHER OIL CHANGE AND TIRE ROTATION. GANDRUD TOLD ME I HAD 4/32 TREAD ON THE TIRES AT 30,026 MILES. ON JUNE 24, 2011, I TOOK IT BACK TO GANDRUD FOR ANOTHER OIL CHANGE AT 33,572 MILES ON THE DASH AND WAS TOLD I HAD 4/32 OF TIRE TREAD LEFT ON THE TIRES. IT WAS NOT TWO MONTHS LATER, I MOVED TO MILWAUKEE, WI. ON AUGUST 18, 2011, AMATO HYUNDAI WAS RUNNING A SPECIAL FOR $12.00 AN OIL CHANGE. I WENT GOT AN OIL CHANGE AND THE TECHNICIAN THERE TOLD ME I NEEDED TO GET NEW TIRES FOR THE CAR. HE STATED AT THIS TIME I HAD LESS THAN 2/32 OF TREAD ON MY TIRE. I GOT A QUOTE FROM THE SERVICE GUY, DECIDED I CAN BEAT THAT PRICE.SET-UP AN APPOINTMENT WITH TIRES PLUS FOR FOUR TIRES AN ALIGNMENT. UNFORTUNATELY, I DID NOT MAKE IT TO GET MY NEW TIRES ON THE CAR. ON SEPTEMBER 03, 2011, I WAS INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT ON THE FREEWAY. I WAS TRAVELING IN FAR LEFT LANE, MANEUVERING TO THE MIDDLE LANE WHEN MY STEERING WHEEL AND MY TIRES WERE NO LONGER FUNCTIONING TOGETHER. I ALMOST LOST MY LIFE THAT DAY, BUT GOD SO FIT FOR ME TO LIVE TO TELL ABOUT IT. IT WAS THE MOST SHOCKING DAY OF MY LIFE. I THANK GOD I AM HERE TO MAKE A COMPLAINT. THESE DEALERSHIPS CAN'T CONTINUE TO SCAM US THIS WAY. IT'S NOT WORTH OUR LIFE.
