Please provide a copy of the inspection report which was performed at the harvey Lexus of shreveport bossier dealership on 4/14/15, with regard to the 2008 Lexus ls 460 (6/10 inches of water in wheel well, brake actuator/control module knocking sound, sensor and personal property damages) which I purchased at Lexus of new orleans on 3/15/15. Per our conversation on yesterday, April 15, 2015 (1800hrs).we discussed the inspection of the vehicle which is being performed at Lexus of shreveport bossier. The vehicle was found to have water in the wheel well on Friday, April 10, 2015 at 1830hrs. I entered the trunk removed my camera for use to find mildew/mold on the case.
