The next day when driving in the car it starts jerking & when hitting the gas pedal, then it got stronger, then we began hearing a rattling noise that started getting stronger and stronger. I took the car to a repair shop who diagnosed the vehicle with a transmission issue. I also took it into another repair shop for a 2nd opinion, who did a thorough written estimate and concluded the same. I contacted the dealership on 3/24/12 within 24 hours & again on 3/26/12, but they refused to take the car back & refund the money or fix the defective transmission. I talked to the manager & gm, corporate didn't return my call. I understand that I purchased the vehicle "As is" understanding that there's no warranty & I'm not disputing that fact.
My complaint is due to the fact that - the inspection report that Bradley Chevrolet provided me was a misrepresentation of the condition of the vehicle. I relied on that report in order to make the
buying decision + the voicemail saved on my phone from the salesperson stating that the car just has minor asthetic issues, rather than any mechanical issues. After speaking with several mechanics & having an estimate done, I was advised that there's no way that the car
dealership could have not known that the vehicle had a defective transmission, prior to selling it to us. The mechanic that did the last inspection / estimate stated that he would be willing to testify as well.
I really feel that me & my family were taken advantage of. This suv was bought for my pregnant fiancee - for her and my newborn baby girl to ride in safely. Instead of this, it has since caused us very much stress, time off work, and financial strain. I ended up spending close to $3,000 to fix the transmission. Also, just because the car was sold as is, does not mean that the dealership would be allowed to misrepresent the inspection / condition of the vehicle,this may also fall under possible fraud / deceptive practices.
Please help us, as this car dealership really put us in a bad position and we don't want them to do this to many other customers for years to come. I welcome contact from media, law firms, state / government agencies, & anybody else that may be able to help.
Thank you very much for everyone's time, help, and consideration.
