My car has dropped out of Automatic into neutral whilst driving 13 times since I bought it new last year for $20,500. It loses all power and cannot be put back into gear or automatic till you come to a compete stop. This has caused some near accidents, the last one being almost fatal. It happened 8 times last year and I returned it several times to the dealership service centre. They couldn't find anything wrong with it and questioned my driving habits. I've been driving for 41 years and have never experienced this before. They gave the car to a manufacturer's rep who also couldn't find anything wrong. I opened a NSW Fair Trading case but nothing was resolved. The manufacturer gave it back claiming never to have heard of this fault before. I have since researched the internet about this fault in this particular car and found there to be many, many so the manufacturer must have been lying when they said they hadn't heard about it.They gave the car back to me to drive and a 3 months later it started again. I brought it back yet again and again nothing was done. On the 2nd June I was nearly killed by a truck that was driving behind me. When I lost power it was sheer luck he missed me. My question is under Australian Consumer Law, legally, who would have been at fault had there been a major accident? Me or the manufacturer for giving me back a car that they knew to be faulty? I have opened yet another NSW Fair Trading case as the manufacturer has had the car for the last three months. Thank you for any information you can give me.
