problem #3

  • Automatic transmission

I bought this car less than two weeks ago, I have not even put two thousand miles on the car and the transmission has quit working in third and fourth gear. The motor has begun to use oil and is knocking. While driving, the car loses power and even dies. It also, while idling, begins to revs the engine to an unsafe level and you must shut the car off. I contacted the dealer I bought the car from, greene county auto auction & sales - 6319 hwy. 49 South paragould, ar 72450. The salesman I bought the car from didn't want to take the car back and was extremaly rude when I suggested that he try to work with me on getting the car fixed or trading it in. As I said I have had the car but a short time and all these problems are occuring. He assured me that the car was in good condition and that he had, had it serviced and checked out and there was nothing wrong with it.

While driving consumer noticed gas fumes in the car, and the fumes kept getting stronger and stronger. Vehicle was taken to garage. Mechanic informed consumer of a serious fuel leak. Fuel was leaking onto the manifold from the fuel rails and O-rings. A puddle of fuel had formed that could have ignited.

When driving the engine check light came on and the light would not go off. Also, there was a gas leakage coming the under the hood of the vehicle. When the vehicle was parked and when getting into the vehicle, the odor was very strong.
