Extremely loud noise from the brakes when backing out from a parked position while applying the brakes. Windshield leaks at the location of the rear mirror light wires, and drips on the gear shift area. The passenger side mirror and the driver side mirror are two different colors, which might indicate the vehicle was in a wreck. I was given no history of repairs on this automobile. An "alamo" sticker was attached to the inside of the trunk lid.

Regal

  • Automatic transmission

On three occasions the vehicle accelerated out of control. After second occasion, vehicle was towed to dealership. Dealer could not find a problem. On (5) or (6) occasions the brake pedal has been extremely hard to apply. They popped and cracked. Because this does not happen when taken to dealership, they have stated that nothing was wrong with the vehicle.
