The vehicle must be repaired to prevent further stalling since driver and any passengers are in danger along with any other vehicles in close proximity. The dealer and Buick have been made aware that the stalling creates a hazardous condition for the driver and the public. Due to the repetition of such stalling that has occurred any future hazards created by this malfunction are foreseeable by the dealer and Buick. As such, we can only accept the vehicle back upon the dealer's and Buick's assurance that it safe to drive at the posted speed limits on the public highways. If such assurance is not possible, then as a matter of public policy the vehicle should be replaced or our money refunded.
