Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
The brakes made a squealing noise, and was replaced. After they were replaced, the brakes locked up which resulted in an accident. When the brakes locked, the vehicle ran into a snowbank. On the second occasion, the brakes locked and slid into the person in front. The vehicle was rear ended and the air bags did not deploy and the seat belts were inoperative. The consumer requested money back.
