Woman whose truck burned wins case against Chrysler

(CBC) OTTAWA - A woman from Saskatchewan whose 14-month-old Dodge pickup was destroyed by an electrical fire caused by a manufacturing defect has been vindicated in the Supreme Court of Canada.

In written reasons issued on Thursday, the court said Shawna Prebushewski is entitled to exemplary damages from Chrysler Canada and a Saskatoon dealer, Dodge City Auto, both of which refused her any help after her 1996 Dodge RAM 4x4 burned beyond repair seven years ago while it was parked on the street.

A Chrysler engineer acknowledged that the company (now called DaimlerChrysler) had known for several years that there were problems with running-light modules in as many as one million vehicles.

The trial judge ruled that Chrysler made a business decision not to warn its customers about the defect or to recall the vehicles and neither Chrysler nor the dealer made any effort to investigate the fire or to compensate Prebushewski.

I can't belive this part:

"An appeal court upheld the general damage ruling but cancelled the exemplary damages and ordered Prebushewski to pay the legal costs of Chrysler and Dodge City in the appeal."

Thank goodness she took it further to the Supreme Court and they overturned that decision.

I will never, ever purchase a Dodge or Chrysler vehicle.

Wow that would suck to just have your car start on fire for no reason.

Yeah, I like to make my cars catch on fire intentionally... having it happen on accident is not a cool bonus...
