Good morning. A party wants to consult with an attorney and have them start looking into this and working on the case They would want to likely send the car to an expert, who can look into this and inspect the transmission, to see if there was a malfunction and what was the case. If they can show there was a defect or issue with it, there could be a basis to file suit. The car and the transmission will want to be kept and preserved, so it is in the same condition as well.
