I wasn't informed about major engine defects and the class action settlement associated with them at the time I purchased the vehicle.
I bought a 2003 Ford Excursion equipped with a 6.0 powerstroke diesel engine in Jan 2014. I began having problems with the truck about 4 months after purchase. There is a class action settlement that closed in December 2013 regarding chronic engine failure with the EGR cooler, oil cooler, turbo, fuel injectors etc. These repairs cost thousands of dollars. Currently I have to replace the fuel injectors at a cost of ********* I also will have to replace the EGR cooler with an aftermarket EGR kit to prevent further engine failure. The mechanic I spoke with informed me that these issues are inevitable. The EGR replacement will cost an additional ********* That only addresses two of the chronic issues associated with this defective engine.

Desired Settlement
I would like the dealership to buy the truck back. I tried to work with them. I would have bought another truck from them if they righted this wrong. The dealership's solution was to offer me ******** towards repairs if I brought the truck to their mechanic. This was an insulting offer.

Dealership sold me a pickup truck for my business, but I cannot register or use it because the dealer sold it to me without first securing the title.
I purchased a 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab pickup truck (hereby known as 'vehicle') from Pacific Auto Center (hereby known as 'the dealer') on August 30, 2014. I arranged my own financing through my ****** ****** ***** and purchased the vehicle outright for the sum of ***********

I took possession of the vehicle and had it trailered to ****** in compliance with California state law regarding purchases made by out of state buyers. I attempted to register the vehicle in my state on September 9, using the sale paperwork provided by the dealer. ****** DMV personnel informed me that I could not register the vehicle until the vehicle's title was surrendered to them and an application be made for an ****** title.

I contacted the dealer to find out where the title was. '******', an employee of the dealer, told me the title was misplaced or missing, and that she would contact the auction house that the dealer purchased the vehicle from to find out what happened to the title.

I called the dealer back several times between the 9th and 22nd of September to inquire as to the status of the vehicle's title. Each time I've been given the same answer by their staff. It's missing, they're waiting to hear back from the auction house, and they have 45 days to apply for another title.

The problem is, I depend on this vehicle for my employment. I am an independent contractor in the **** hauling business, and I need this heavy duty vehicle to tow trailers across the country. Because I cannot register it due to the missing title, I cannot lease it on with any carrier in the **** industry, effectively rendering me unemployed.

I have invested thousands of dollars upgrading the vehicle with towing equipment necessary for the business. It's costing me thousands of dollars in lost revenue every week it sits unregistered. I have tried to be reasonable with the sales management at Pacific Auto Center, but I feel they are in no hurry to fix the problem, and have offered no alternative solution. I need your help in expediting the title process.


******* ********

Desired Settlement
Expedite my title, or rescind the contract, and return all monies, including the purchase price of the vehicle, plus labor, lost revenue, and transportation costs I've incurred due to the dealer's inability to provide the title in a timely fashion.
