You can hear him coming down the street from about a block away, his new Trans Am fast and loud.
The vehicle is new to Coedy James who recently bought the 2001 Firebird, along with a car warranty to go with it from Millennium Auto Sales in Chandler.
"It covers everything front to back, motor, transmission drive, all covered," he says.
But the warranty would be voided if there was anything added on to the car.
Well, the car already had two after market add-ons before he bought it. They involved the exhaust system and shifting.
So before he bought a warranty, he says asked the dealer if it would be good with the add-ons.
"No problems, as long as you don't add anything when you leave here with it," James says he was told.
He didn't add anything to the car.
And then came the first warranty test -- a transmission problem.
"It was popping out of reverse as you back up it would pop out and grind," he described.
So James called the warranty company.
"They came and looked at it and said no, we're not going to cover it and canceled my policy on it."
Yep, the warranty company said the add-ons put on before he bought the car voided the warranty.
With a useless warranty, he wanted money back from the dealer, but he says he called two and three times a week but got nothing.
James is no stranger to battles, of a different kind.
He spent years in Iraq and was injured in a roadside bombing. "Took shrapnel to my back and knee, spinal fracture and traumatic brain injury," James told me.
He even got a Purple Heart when he got back.
But he wasn't getting anywhere with the dealer. So he let me know.
I talked with the owner of Millennium Auto Sales in Chandler and he said he'd take care of it.
It took a couple of other calls. The dealer blamed the warranty company for not coming through with the refund.
Eventually, he says the company came up with its share, Millennium came up with the rest.
Bottom line, James had his problem solved and $3,000 was taken right off his loan.
