Rideau felt Beny Chevrolet Oldsmobile had done her an injustice by charging for repairing the Vega she purchased from the firm It was still on she said She defend- ed herself against the 10 repair bill Ms Galbreath told Judge Frank T Byrne she had nothing but trouble with a Vega she purchased from Beny Chevrolet Oldsmobile She said the situation became even more frustrating for her when the car didn t run any better after Beny's on several oc- casions had it in its service shop for repair According to Charles Beny Chevrolet Old- smobile and General Motors performed most of the repairs without even though they were not covered by the new car warranty GM new car warranties cover defective parts and the labor involv- ed m changing them during the first 12 months of he said Much of the work performed on Ms Galbreath's Vega was maintenance and was thus not covered by the he explained Ms Galbreath's car according to testimony given in began shortly after she purchased the new car from Beny s in 1973 First it was the rear window then a hood that wouldn't close properly vibrations in the front end squeeky a faulty oil pressure registering unit a malfunction in the fuel faulty spark plugs and she said took several months for Beny's to repair the detogger because of the problems it had obtaining the required parts from General Motors and when the parts were they were in taulty condition auto dealer personnel informed the court The crux of the dispute between Ms Galbreath and Beny's resulted from a faulty carburetion system that she claimed was never remedied by the auto dealer Two months after she purchased the car it began stalling Sometimes the motor would stall while other times it would quit at 60 m p h on the leaving her with no other alternative but to hitchhike to work she said Benv's she said suggested a new carburetor would solve the Vega's fuel mileage and stalling problems and indicated the part would be ordered and replaced on wananty It took Beny s two months to get the part and repair the car according to testimony To Ms Galbreath's it was not a carburetor but a carburetor kit that was installed and she was bill- ed 10 for the repair job In cross examination of Mr Ms Galbreath contended the firm has carburetor kits in stock for the cars it sells and if it a kit can be obtained from a General Motors depot within 24 hours She questioned Why the delay in her why was a kit installed instead of a whole carburetor and why was she charged for the repair job' Beny's answer was that the problem with her car- buretor was caused by dirt in the gasoline and thus was a maintenance adjustment covered by and not a defective part replacement Ms Galbreath pointed out that she had not authoriz- ed any work other than the replacement of the car- buretor and was not aware that it would cost her anything until she received the bill In support of her Ms Galbreath told Judge Byrne she had to drive her vehicle for two months with the carburetor problems prior to the carburetor kit be- ing installed and for a few months after Beny s never did fix the problem she claimed Ms Galbreath told the court a Cardston service sta- tion finally solved her gas mileage problems when they removed a plugged air filter about eight months after the vehicle was supposed to have been repaired at Beny s Judge Byrne ordered that the 10 bill for the car- buretor job be split 50 50 by Ms Galbreath and Beny s Chevrolet Oldsmobile Southeast city development is approved City roundup An ambitious heifer tied up on a small farm at the edge of
