The contact was able to drive the vehicle home after the failure occurred and he notified the manufacturer. He was told that they would send a representative to check into the failure but no one has called him. There was no maintenance performed on the vehicle prior to the failure. The contact stated that he has two different VIN's for this vehicle and both were unknown. The failure mileage was 9,354.
