car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Chevrolet Aveo

The car was a 2006 Chevrolet Aveo. I have contacted you before. First, some months after I purchased car when I turned off car ignition would not turn completely off. Went on for two + years used wd forty finally got it to work most of the time. Had to go back to car hours after driving until it would release key and turn all the way off. The dash light stayed on and drained the battery. I noticed, (not all the time) that the gas pedal under my foot felt really hot; thought it was because it was a warm day etc, but it happened in cool weather also. Replaced head gasket seal twice still have oil leak. About three years ago + or -, had to have ball something in front wheel replaced. It broke again had it done again. When I accelerate left front wheel rattles. I drive slow in it and only go to school to get grand kids and to store primarily. Went to a big city and car( dragged, would not accelerate )on up ramps, went to orlando once to visit family, same thing. Two weeks after purchase car acted dead, would not start,took off battery cables, replaced them and car started. I called the ph # in owners manual at onset of problems, they said I would have to pay for diagnostics. I had repairs done by mechanics not assc'd w/ dealership, because of cost. I spent a lot on repairs from early on after purchase. I bought a car for reliability, to transport my gkids and get to go visit my family members I FL and tenn, but I only went to visit orlando once because I was afraid of driving in the mountains. This problem occurred on 10/23/08.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Chrysler Town & Country

The vehicle was a 2004 Chrysler town and country. Every time when fill up the gas tank the engine will stalled (but you can start up ) will run rough for 4 to 5 miles after that engine will back to normal condition, I have known a lot people have a same problem with there types of vehicles, this does sound like a design flaw. About 75,000 miles it started to stall right after filling up. It is a dangerous situation especially if it stalls in the middle of an intersection or on railroad tracks. Chrysler should recall there types of vehicle. The failure date was Friday, January 1, 2010.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Chrysler 300

The car is a 2006 Chrysler 300. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 2C3KK63H86_. From what I've learned there's a defect in Chrysler automobiles with the hemi engine. Any time the gas tank is filled, if a sharp left turn is taken the car stalls out. This is exactly what has happened to me periodically over the last two years. I brought the car to two local mechanics and the Chrysler dealership, nobody could figure it out, it doesn't show up on the car's computer. Finally, a third mechanic googled it and came up with an article in the l. A. Times that perfectly described my situation (duh, I should've thought of that). It wasn't until the car stalled in the middle of a busy road, on a Friday afternoon, with my two-year-old daughter in the car, that I really had an issue. I was able to roll into the parking lot of a shopping plaza, so it ended alright, but if there was nowhere to go that could've spelled disaster! as a guy I can handle a situation like this, but when children are involved a defect of this type is unacceptable. I'm the original owner of the car, so it's not related to user error by any means. In the end the third mechanic quoted me $1800 for a new gas tank + lines + labor, or I could not fill my tank to the top when I get gas. Thanks Chrysler! plus, the shifter for the automatic transmission on the 300c will lock up, not letting the driver shift from park to drive. Thanks again Chrysler for stranding my pregnant wife! (I still have the shifter in my garage hoping that will be a recall). It was Sep. 11, 2013 when this adaptive equipment issue happened.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Dodge Nitro

The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Dodge Nitro 4x4. I am original owner of this vehicle. It is garaged , well maintained, and serviced by dealership. There is no history of abuse, or auto accidents associated with this vehicle. The interior drivers door handle snapped off in my hands yesterday, while attempting to exit the parked vehicle. This is a considerable safety concern. Only exit is through an electric window, due to large console between seats. I have contacted doge, and due to mileage (79k) and age (2007), they offer no assistance in fixing, so I will have to pay at dealership. I have seen enough complaints in various forums of this same issue, to warrant contacting you. This is not cosmetic, but of vital concern to driver safety. Please consider further action with a view to recall , so that manufacturer will proceed rectify this dangerous flaw. Thank you for your consideration. This problem occurred on Tuesday, May. 13, 2014.

Noticeably worse as more load is applied. Vehicle is rate with payload of 1500 lbs and it only takes 200-300 lbs in the bed to feel it and when you have 700-800 lbs it literally bucks. Had at dealer multiple times and been in contact with Ford tech line who all say that no damage or safety issue exists and to live with it. I paid $42k for this vehicle and now I can't even put anything into the bed to to unsafe starts that are going to leave me stranded. To make matters worse the computer tries to compensate for the vibrations and starts to lower power causing it to not go which is dangerous in left hand turn situations. The tech said there was nothing they could do as Ford states these are known issues. This adaptive equipment issue occurred Saturday, May 17, 2014.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Acura MDX

The vehicle is a 2014 Acura Mdx. VIN of the vehicle was 5FRYD3H88E_. Traveling 65 mph on a freeway with adaptive cruise control (acc) engaged, vehicle suddenly brakes hard on its own for no apparent reason; dropping 10 mph in a heartbeat. The vehicle did not produce a collision warning message on the dash. The cars in front on me were well beyond the longest 4 bar range of the acc so it was not detecting and locked onto a car in front of me. There were no cars on either side, no car crossing in front of me and the road was flat with no obstacles. Fortunately, the car behind me was not tailgating as the sudden deceleration could have caused a rear end collision. Sudden deceleration has happened twice during the six weeks I've owned this vehicle. I've also noticed that the acc is inconsistent, often sluggish, in responding to the speed of traffic when it is detecting a car in front of me; creating additional hazard concerns for the driver. This adaptive equipment issue occurred May. 12, 2014.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Acura MDX

Our vehicle is an Acura Mdx 2014 with the advance package. One feature of the package is adaptive cruise control which aims to keep the vehicle moving at a steady rate and at a set distance from any vehicle in front of it. On several occasions, when vehicles in front of ours slows down or a vehicle merges from another lane in front of us (even transiently), instead of gradually braking and speeding up, the Acura performs sudden deceleration with hard braking even if the vehicle in front is doing the same speed or going only slightly slower. After the hard braking starts, if the vehicle in front speeds up, our vehicle does not recover and start to accelerate again. I have a pregnant wife who is the main driver of the car and I am concerned that this problem will cause her to be rear-ended. This issue happened on Sun., Mar. 16, 2014.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Honda Civic

The car was a 2008 Honda Civic. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 2HGFA15888_. The air conditioner is no longer blowing any cold air. Went to the dealership and was told that the air compressor needs to be replaced, along with the coils, and a/c clutch engagement for the air compressor. Vehicle is only 5 years old and there is no extended warranty to cover the cost of replacing the air compressor. Discussed with several mechanics in my area and have seen forum discussions posted that have similar issues and have listed it as a "known issue" but Honda has not formally acknowledged. Previously I have owned a 1997 Honda Civic with all original parts and it did not have such an issue. I have also submitted a direct complaint to Honda regarding my defective air compressor. This adaptive equipment issue occurred 04/07/14.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Honda Civic

I leased a new Honda Civic and I can not drive it without excruciating pain in my neck. The headrests shove my head forward and I can not find a comfortable position. I am heartbroken, angry and in pain. After my first 30 minute drive in this car, I researched online this issue and there are thousands of americans with the same problem due to the new head restraint regulations. I certainly would not have signed a 3 year lease agreement if I had known that I was agreeing to pay thousands of dollars for three years of pain. I've tried adjusting the seat height, adjusting the tilt of the seat and the headrest height in every combination I can think of and all I can achieve is a barely tolerable driving position where I can barely see over the dashboard and the headrest is raised high enough that it doesn't touch my head - nor protect it as designed. I understand that this is mainly an issue with passive headrests and that the active headrests are a better design that stay out of the driver's space. My only option will be to reverse the headrest for the next three years and hope my car isn't rear ended. Although having my new car totaled would be a blessing because I would have a chance to find a vehicle to drive that doesn't hurt me physically. I see that these forward tilting headrest complaints online go all the way back to 2008 when the new regulations came out that forced car manufacturers to produce vehicles that torture a significant number of americans every year. I would have gladly paid $200 or $300 more for an active restraint system that stayed out of my way. The NHTSA should be ashamed for their disgusting callous disregard for the thousands of people who suffer every day due to these government-required headrests forcing their necks and spines into unnatural and painful positions. The failure date was April 11, 2014.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Hyundai Sonata

The car was a 2013 Hyundai Sonata. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5NPEC4AC3D_. On Mar 18, 2014, at approximately 11:25pm my wife and I heard a very loud noise, ie; explosion, that we knew came from the top of our car. We pulled over and noticed that our sunroof had exploded; over half the glass was gone and strewn all over the roof and trunk area of our car. We had just pulled away from a stop light after it turned green and were accelerating up to speed. We were traveling somewhere between 30 - 40mph when the sunroof blew for no apparent reason. We took the car to the Hyundai dealership for repair the next day. The dealership couldn't determine what caused the sunroof to rupture like it did. The dealership thought we were hit by a rock, but both the wife and I refuted that idea. We stand by our claim that it blew for no apparent reason. Even if a rock did hit us, the sunroof glass should not have exploded/ruptured like it did. We feel there's a very serious defect with the glass and that this incident needs to be addressed more closely. I have pictures if you would like them. The failure date was 03/18/2014.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Infiniti QX4

The vehicle involved was a 2001 Infiniti Qx4. The built-on running boards (these are not an add-on feature to the vehicle, but came standard on all qx-4s) have brackets and a tubular steel support beams that support the weight of any passenger stepping on them to enter the vehicle. The support beam and support brackets have entirely rusted away; there is little to no other rust on other areas of the vehicle. A local body shop identified and notified the owner of the danger associated with non-supported running boards. A consumer could easily be injured if stepping on the running boards to enter the vehicle and having them collapse. The injury certainly could be more acute for elderly, disabled, or children in the event of a collapse. The tubular steel support beams and brackets have no rust inhibitor on them while the other metal sections of the running boards were coated with rust inhibitor and show no rust. There was a design flaw either associated with the type of metal used or a lack of rust inhibitor on the parts that have disintegrated. The cost to replace is quite exorbitant and the replacements may have the same design flaw. The short term solution has been to entirely remove the running boards off of the vehicle to eliminate the danger. This makes for a tall vertical step-in, but is less risky then the faulty running boards. This adaptive equipment issue occurred Nov. 1, 2013.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Jeep Liberty

The car involved is a 2002 Jeep Liberty. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1J4GL48K82_. In December 2013, I received a recall notice on the above-noted vehicle. Soon after, I phoned the dealer, moore Chrysler Jeep, peoria, arizona, to schedule installation of the oem trailer hitch, but I was told they did not have the part. In March 2014, moore Chrysler Jeep sent me a reminder notice that my Jeep needed some maintenance, and that as of December 12, 2013, the vehicle had an incomplete recall. I phoned the service department and made an appointment for the scheduled maintenance, as well as for the hitch to be installed. However, I was told, once again, that the dealer didn't have the part. It has been almost six months since I received the recall notice, but, so far, the problem has not been remedied. I am frustrated and furious! this is an important safety issue, and I want to know why I'm getting the runaround. I don'¿t know where to place the blame, ¿Chrysler or the dealer, ¿but either way, nobody is taking responsibility for this most recent recall with important safety concerns. Why is it taking so long to manufacture and supply the part? does anyone care? please do not suggest that I purchase and install a hitch from some other location and wait for reimbursement. I want to hear from either Chrysler or national highway traffic safety administration or both very soon. It was Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013 when this adaptive equipment issue occurred.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Lexus LS460

The vehicle involved is a 2012 Lexus Ls460. Vehicle identification number (VIN): JTHGL5EF4C_. The 1st incident occurred in novato, CA making a right turn from the ignacio blvd bridge over 101n to nave dr. After a rain the previous day. When the front of the car slid slightly, the skid control turned the wheels sharply to the left forcing the car into the lane to my left. Fortunately, there was no car in that lane or there would have been an accident. I was able to regain control but Lexus refuses to investigate this issue insisting it must be reproduced by a dealer for them to act. This is impossible as no dealer has facilities to do this. The 2nd incident occurred on a hill at the intersection of willard & parnassus in san francisco on 3/14/14. I had made a u-turn to enter a parking space on willard and was facing downhill. When I put the car in reverse it rapidly rolled forward which is not expected in an automatic. I submitted video evidence of this to Lexus and this problem was reproduced by freeman Lexus in santa rosa which, however, has no way to fix the problem, and Lexus refuses to do so though this, too, could be a safety hazard. This 3rd incident occurred on 4/14/14 when, at woodland market in ross, I put my car in reverse and the rear view camera did not come on. I put it back in park and then back into reverse and the camera still did not come on. I made a video of this and sent it to Lexus and went to Lexus of marin to show them the problem. They would have to take the car but I could not give it to them and explained this would not occur again if the car was turned off and started again - which I showed them to be true. This also could be a hazard but freeman Lexus cannot reproduce this and Lexus absolves itself of any responsibility. Lexus, in fact, tells me if the car works "as designed" based on what the dealer can find they will not fix or investigate the issue even if safety is involved. This violates the Toyota doj agreement. This issue happened on May. 6, 2013.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Mazda MAZDA3

The vehicle involved was a 2010 Mazda Mazda3. In the Mazda 3, the tpms sensor is connected to the air valve. The tpms sensors break easily, causing the tire to deflate. If the outside part of the tpms sensor breaks from corrosion or being hit against a curb, the tire will deflate. I have had 3 tpms sensors break since I had the car, which has only been 4 years (approx 39,000 miles), and is expensive to replace. My tires are less than 3 years old. The part of the tpms exposed on the outside will corrode, and if the outside part breaks off, your tires deflate. This is a common problem for Mazda owners. These things break and then cause a flat, leaving the driver in a possible emergency situation. The reason for the tpms sensor is so drivers don't have blow outs, but the emergency light is very nonspecific, so the only way you know what the problem is is when the flat has already occurred, which is unnecessarily caused by the tpms sensor. This latest incident involved me stranded in the country, yet another tpms sensor replacement ($200 approx), a new tire, and an alignment - almost $500 total. If the tpms sensor hadn't broken, the flat would not have occurred at all. This issue happened on 05/18/14.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of SAAB 9-3

The vehicle involved is a 2007 SAAB 9-3. After reading about the recent Toyota floormat recall I have decided to report a similar problem with my 2007 SAAB 9-3. My driver side floormat does not stay in place and has repeatedly gotten caught as I push the clutch in. The result is that the clutch will not let out with out me manually removing the floormat by hand. I can push the clutch in, but it won't let out. This would be a simple fix if they would create a better floor mat anchor, but the dealer said they can't do anything. It was Sep. 28, 2009 when this adaptive equipment issue occurred.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2013 Subaru Outback. With the eyesight system, Outback may start braking when you are coming up on another car or trying to pass it, even though you are moving away from the vehicle to pass it and are not endanger of an accident. Very annoying at times and forces you to disable it but might be worthwhile if it didn't go off just from coming near vehicles. I suppose they don't want it to go off too late. The seat/headrest is the bigger problem. The failure date was Wednesday, March 6, 2013.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Toyota RAV4

The car involved was a 2013 Toyota Rav4. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 2T3DFREV4D_. I purchased the 2013 Rav4 limited with navigation and a blind spot monitor, however I do not believe the monitor works correctly, it does not give any indication that something (another vehicle) is approaching until the vehicle is at the side door of my vehicle, way too late to make an adjustment to your changing lanes. I have had it back to my Toyota dealers two times, on the first visit the car was in for a 6 month check up and I said something about it at the time, but nothing shows on my visit that it was checked so I assumed that it was corrected. After that visit I realized that the blind spot monitor was still not working, so on my one year inspection and check up I specifically asked for the blind spot monitor to be checked again. This time when I got my bill for the pennsylvania emissions test I noted the blind sport monitor was not part of my repair bill, so I questioned the service rep, who explained there was no adjustment for this part. I went to the sales manager about it and she said she would have Toyota contact me. When I was not contacted by Toyota I sent a email to Toyota owners web site and made a compliant, they responded that I should take it back to the Toyota dealer and tell them I need an adjustment on the blind spot monitor, which I did, when I returned to pick up my Rav4 I was told they could not find any problem and there was nothing could be done. My compliant is if it is not adjustable then it is a safety issue that should be looked into. Thank you. This problem occurred on May. 8, 2014.

As a consumer and driver I feel a formal safety investigation must take place because a part such as this snapping off endangers my life and the life of the general public.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Volkswagen Passat

The vehicle having this issue was a 2013 Volkswagen Passat. VIN of the vehicle was 1VWCN7A3XD_. Backup camera is slow to start. May take from 5 to 20 seconds to become operational after start up. This is hazard with respect to reliance on backup cameras by drivers to see obstructions behind the car. Failure of camera to start up quickly results in reduced safety because drivers will back up without camera operational. I can start my car and back out of driveway and reach the corner of my block before the camera starts up and shows me the road disappearing behind me. A camera does not replace driver obligations to make sure that obstructions are not behind their car, but the camera is also there to be a safety feature and it is not reliable as a safety feature do to its extremely slow start up. Individuals do not like to wait 30 seconds at a stop light much less 20 just to back out of their driveway. This is a design or manufacturing issue that should be corrected to ensure that the backup camera is a reliable safety feature as it was intended. This issue happened on 07/31/12.

car   Adaptive Equipment problem of Volvo XC60

The vehicle involved is a 2014 Volvo Xc60. The volume level of the lane change warning signal is extremely soft and largely undetectable with background road noises. This presents a safety issue as the driver is not alerted to inadvertent lane changes as he/she should be. I came pretty close to having an accident since I had expected the alert and it did not occur at a volume level that I could hear. (I had a 2010 Volvo Xc60 with this same feature but the volume level of the lane change warning was much louder). The Volvo dealer confirms that the volume level of the lane change warning is not user nor dealer adjustable; it will require a software upgrade by Volvo. I have informed Volvo customer service of this issue. They say they are aware, but could not provide any date for the software upgrade to fix this important issue. Some urgency needs to be provided in fixing this as it is a significant safety issue. This adaptive equipment problem happened on August 27, 2013.

The approximate failure mileage was 63,000 and the approximate current mileage was 47,829 with in 9days of repair drivers side door would not open. . Called gm and dealer but it seems no one thinks it has anything to do with repair. Work\ed fine until repair an auto has little mileage. They blamed it on living near the beach, I don't. Owner of dealershiip call stated he would take care of paying us back but it has been well within a time to mail a check. Gm keeps calling to see if dealer paid. It is funny a door works great prior then can not open 9 days after return. Had similar problem with tires, auto serviced every 3,000 miles by dealer we purchased auto and tires worn down within less then 28,ooo and they stated tires are not covered by warrenty. You protects the disabled and seniors? nobody because they think we can afford theses cost. We can't. The failure date was Monday, August 20, 2012.
