Subject: Takata Airbag Recall My son was involved in a minor

subject : Takata Airbag RecallMy son was involved in a minor accident on May 31, 2016. He was driving a 2013 Ford Mustang. He had received 2 recall letters from Ford prior to the accident. He contacted the dealer where he purchased the car, prior to the accident, with regards ***** ***** the airbag but was told there were no airbags available. He was told to continue to drive the car.The insurance company has done all the repairs but the airbag. He was told by Ford that the replacement airbag could take up to six months. This car was his only means of transportation. The insurance (Ford) would not provide the loaner/rental. After the insurance stopped paying the rental we paid for one week of car rental at a cost of over $400. He can't afford the car rental. He had no means of transport. His car still sits in the repair shop until an airbag is available. We had no choice but to purchase a used vehicle. Would we be able to file a small claim for the week car rental and the purchase of the used vehicle?

I live in Florida. I purchase a Ford Focus NEW in April

I live in Florida. I purchase a Ford Focus NEW in April 2013. Since then I have had 4 major transmission repairs. The clutches (3 times) and the TCM (Transmission Control Module) along with various programming to correct performance issues. Each time the clutches go out there is an average 10 week lead time because as I have been told at the dealership "This is unfortunately a very common issue. Ford is working to resolve it on the Focus and the Fiesta, however, all we can do is repair it" Rental cars, lost time, and time wasted. I have an extended warranty and am concerned about what happens when that runs out. I am tired of being told that Ford knows about it. I am driving a junk car as far as I am concerned and I need legal advice on how to resolve it. BY THE WAY, every time I write to Ford corporate (Twice now) wonder of wonders, a clutch shows up within a few days to fix my car.

Reno Nevada Toyota sold me a warranty for $2495. They said if I didn't use it at the end of the 7 years my money would be refunded. When I called I found out that the company went out of business in 2012 and there was nothing they could do except give me an allowance on a new car.

I purchased a used truck from a dealership in September 2015,

I purchased a used truck from a dealership in September 2015, along with an extended warranty though an outside company, but sold by the dealer. That day before driving it off the lot, the dealership replaced the pinion seal on the rear differential of the truck. Now several months later, the rear differential has gone out. I had it diagnosed by a dealership closer to me and they said the pinion nut was overtightened when the pinion seal was replaced back in September, causing the rear differential to slowly break. My extended warranty company has denied my claim due to negligence of the dealership I purchased the truck from. That dealer says it isn't their problem and they cannot help me.

My name is ***** *****. I am looking to see if anyone has

hi, my name is ***** *****. I am looking to see if anyone has any similar issue as mine. I took my car to Jiffy lube for oil change and now the engine is damaged because they made a mistake when they did the oil change. I took my car back to toyota dealer and they told me it will be at least 8,000 to fix it and it may be even more if they find more damages after they take the lower part of engine out. Now I have to get a rental car and waiting for jiffy lube to respond to this issueJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: So apparently they didn't tighten up the rubber rim that goes around the housing and it cause the oil to leak out slowly. When I noticed the low oil pressure light came on, i took it to the dealer right away and they told me they found metal flakes in oil filter housing and oil was leaking from oil filter causing it to have low oil.JA: OK got it.

On 25 Feb 2016, I purchased a 2005 Audi A-4 from a Riverside

On 25 Feb 2016, I purchased a 2005 Audi A-4 from a Riverside County, Ca. dealer for $7400.00 via an "As-Is-No-Warranty." I also purchased a "bumper-to-bumper" extended warranty for another $2500.00. The car was marketed to me and my son as a "clean" car: both title and mechanical issues. Within one week, I began to notice a series of problems: malfunctioning safety air bag, brake problems and transmission leaks. I took the vehicle to a certified Audi mechanic, and I received written estimates for repair totaling in excess of another $7000.00. When the mechanic contacted the warranty company, he discovered that the dealership had not even remitted my payment of $2500.00. The company had NO record of my vehicle, and I could not receive repair to the Audi. Moreover, the warranty company advised that the contract was NOT "bumper-to-bumper" as advertised. When I called the dealership, I was advised that the "check was in the mail" - 32 days following original purchase. Since then, I spoke with the dealership owner and he denied the mechanical malfunction claims, and insisted he sold me a "clean car." Since then, I have already spent nearly $830.00 to change oil, replace transmission fluids, and repair a faulty coolant system. The mechanic advised that the transmission pan had been damaged from a possible accident and needed replacement, but the warranty company will not cover the transmission pan, nor will it repair the air bag. The air bag WILL NOT deploy in the event of an accident. The dealership refuses any repair, and I am in the process of canceling the extended warranty, and have requested that the dealership either repair the vehicle, or buy back the car from me. I have nearly completed a 12-page complaint letter, including documentation, which is scheduled for mailing next week. The final estimate for ALL repairs now amounts to $7038.00 in addition to money already spent. Do I have any legal recourse?

I purchased a new car at Subaru dealer on January 7th. I put

I purchased a new car at Subaru dealer on January 7th. I put $1000 down in cash and financed the remaining amount with CapitalOne. I also purchased the extended warranty plan and paid in full with credit card. So, the extended warranty plan is totally separate transaction and not a part of my financed amount.Next day, I contacted the dealer and requested to cancel the plan. The contract says that I can cancel the plan within the first 90 days. The dealer push back my request first, but finally sent me a form to fill-out on January 11th. I filled out the form and send it back on the same day.Because they didn't get back to me, I emailed and asked the dealer 1) if they received my request, 2) how I get money back, and 3) how long it will take. They emailed me back and said:1. They received my request form and submitted it.2. Because I paid with my credit card, the refund will be issued by Subaru and mailed to my address3. It will take 6 to 8 weeks to processI waited more than 8 months but haven't received the check from Subaru, so I contacted the dealer asking the status of my refund on March 13. Now the dealer said: "Since you are financing the vehicle, it is refunded to the financing bank. It will reduce the amount that you are financing. I won't lower your payments until the very last payment and you will notice that overall total that you owe will be reduced.”I refrain the dealer about what I was informed when I requested the refund. but he said: "The response was from Tom is incorrect. What I told you when you at the time you canceled and the same as I stated in my previous email is correct.”Here is my question:1) Is this legal? Could the dealer can do this? I mean, first of all, the payment to the extended warranty plan was different transaction and I paid in full with my credit card. Second, I'm financing the car payment with CapitalOne, not the dealer. Also, they can pay this amount to CapitalOne, but how come they have an authority to decide to wait till the last payment?2) Could you tell me how I should be responding to this dealer to get my money back now? Example would be great.

Here is my issue: I bought a new car yesterday. The sticker

Hi,Here is my issue:I bought a new car yesterday. The sticker price is $25885 and the dealer is giving me discount of $4385. They told me I had to pay sales tax on the full price which I understand is correct but they added some of the incentive on top of the $25885 making the sale price $28,500. That makes me overpay sales tax and increases the bot***** *****ne.Is what they did legal and can I brake the contract?I appreciate your time.Mila

I purchased my 2010 vw cc sport on 12/23/2015. When I first

I purchased my 2010 vw cc sport on 12/23/2015. When I first bought the car the window would not go up so they kept it and fixed it. The I got the car back on 12/28/2015 and the care started jerking on 12/30/2015, but because it was the holidays I had to make an appoinment and take it to volks wagen dealership to see what was wrong with it. The dealership where I purchased the car stated they couldnt read what was wrong with it becuase they cant read vw codes. I took my car to the other dealership vw on my appt date around 01/07/2016 and they kept the car up until 01/28/2016. After receiving my car it was still jerking as before. They stated it was about 2600 dollars worth of work they had just performed in which the original dealer paid for. Now today I have taken my car back up to vw dealership to get the same problem fixed again, only now they stated I will have to pay out of pocket. What should I do? They haven't told me whats wrong with yet, for the second time.
