my daughter was in passenger seat had been to doctor all day.just got her home from hospital few days ago due to car accident which she broke her neck and ribs and spinal cord injury got home very tired and went to undo seat belt and would not release she got to freaking because she has a halo which is very large and painful on her head and neck and the damn belt kept getting tighter and hurt her we had to drive her to local service station and they cut the belt. never had a car so stupid and still owe money own now i have to take it one hr from my home to have fixed and right now the last thing i feel like doing is dealing with a dealership. i feel they should come get it fix it and bring back to me.can you imigine having a broke neck after a car wreck a month ago and to be trapped in seat belt.pure stupid.and then the dealership wanted to know if it was under warranty.what a bunch of bull.
