A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a consumer law matter involving a car dealership. The sailor recently purchased a vehicle from a dealership. A few days after the sale, the dealership called him and asked him to bring the car in for a repair, which he did. After the 30 day warranty had expired, the car stopped running and it was discovered that the engine was ruined. The cost to repair the vehicle is likely more than the car is worth. The sailor seeks pro bono help to pursue the proper remedy.
