problem #1

Feb 292004

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles
Since purchase of vehicle continual costs to keep vehicle running has almost exceed the value of the vehicle. Repair costs from $3,200-$3,900 and continue to increase. Any future repairs will now exceed the purchase value of the vehicle. Due to the incapacity of the truck my lost wages have exceeded or will exceed $10,000. Being a single parent of two young children and having lost my job due to the vehicles incapacitate has caused insurmountable pain and suffering to the necessary day to day functions to my family. My once fair credit report has been ruined. One of my main reasons for agreeing to take out a auto loan was to help achieve a favorable credit rating to obtain a mortgage loan in the near future which is no longer an option. There is currently a investigation and class action suite pending by the Vermont state attorney's generals office against william dydo jr. (dydo auto sales. Although I hope to be part of this suit I will not be compensated for pain and suffering. Thank you
