problem #1

Nov 182009

A/C drain tube had not been able to drain since owning the vehicle since November 2009, due to a flawed design, henceforth I was ill every time I drove the vehicle with the A/C on. This last ill driven 1 hour and 30 minute day, 7 July 2017, I was terribly nausea, extreme headaches and exhaustion lasting through to 9 July 2017. Had it been a longer drive, I am sure I would have had an accident as I struggled to drive home and put myself into bed. This flawed design was repaired, as all vehicles should be inspected for the safe and welfare of the drivers and passengers.
