: the contact stated while driving smoke was smelled. The smoke was discovered coming from the front passenger seat. The vehicle was taken to the dealership for inspection. They determined the seat heater burned the seat. The heater and seat were replaced. After picking up the vehicle from the dealership, while driving home the engine blew and the vehicle was taken back to the dealership again. The dealership inspected and determined the engine needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified; however no additional repairs were made.

  • Automatic transmission

The engine fell from the vehicle due to a missing bolt, also the transmission was inoperative. The consumer found that the engine and the transmission was rebuilt prior to purchase. The engine light had come on, the consumer's daughter heard a loud rattle and viewed smoke coming from the engine area. On another occasion when the consumer had come to an intersection, when accelerated, the vehicle had made a noise then would not move. The bolts had sprayed over the road. Scc
