 Description of the problemI purchased the car 11/17/2018 from earls credit auto sales in portsmouth on airline blvd ; it rode well until 11/30/2018 when i drove to the barbershop in the greenbrier area of chesapeake va. I went to pull out the parking lot and my car started to shake real heavy and sloppy so i parked it and turnt it off , when i tried to start it up it would not start it kept stalling i called the dealerships auto shop they took the car and held it and claim they were working on it , i picked the car up when it was ready 12/04/2018. It rode fine until 12/14/2018 i went to the barbershop again and as i was leaving backing out my car started to shake heavily again than before i could put the car in drive to pull back in to the parking spot the car just cut off in the middle of the parking lot while a car was to the left of me trying to pull out . I had to get out and push the car in the spot and hurry and rush to push on the break and put the car in park. When i got a tow to the dealerships auto shop i explained this is my second time here under the same circumstances , i also called the dealership pleading to give the car back and to be refunded i barley got to enjoy or use the beguile without it being a problem . I was told they don¿t allow refunds and there auto shop will fix the car , so when they said the car was ready on 12/15/2018 it drove well but it the check engine light came on i went to auto zone for a free test and i got a po430 code , i called the auto shop before they closed because they told me on the 14th all what was wrong was a fuel pump and they replaced it but it has something to do with the catalyst system i been smelling a buring smell coming through my vents for a while but never really knew what it was . The rep on the phone told me it was fine for me to still drive the car and i also i won¿t be able to get my car worked on till 12/26/2018 . I need help!
