Z Frank Chevrolet Informative - Unsafe brake repair
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- In November 2005 my AstroVan brakes were made inoperative during a "Customer Appreciation" lube and vehicle inspection. . A complaint letter dated 11/02/05 questioned manager's explanation of "raising van on rack stressed rusted left brake line to failure". This prompted Z Frank to offer a "discounted" brake repair (grudgingly accepted) that was performed 11/15/05.
However, with only 1,010 miles driven on this repair, a sudden and complete brake failure occurred 2/15/07 on a city street with a lady friend. .An oil change and vehicle inspection on 5/23/06 identified nothing amiss, yet Z Frank wishes to absolve all and any responsibility for a frightening experience to life and limb. .
Based on an invitation that "an interested party exists for my valuable Chevrolet Truck". I have suggested title transfer if brake repair costs are refunded. Another recent offer of a "$4.95 OIL AND FILTER CHANGE" suggests they hope to discover (or create?) a new repair cost.
I hope that an angiogram scheduled for 3/12/07 will not complicate the matter.
