car   Electrical Jack problem of Chrysler Pacifica

The car involved is a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica. I was jacking up the car to replace the brakes and the jack stand went right through the body sill! I looked closer and the entire undercarriage and subframe of the car underneath is completely rusted. Do not place your jack or jack stand near the body sill without checking it very closely. If your working on your Pacifica and it falls off the jack stands you could be killed! on my 2004 Pacifica, there is not one good place to put a jackstand. Everything is completely rusted. It is impossible to work on the car if you have to jack it up. This issue happened on Thursday, May. 1, 2014.

Repair is quite expensive because Chrysler has changed the styling of the part and it has to be replaced with the new part. The new part I was told would be being put in the place where it should have been put in the first place to be safer from the types of damages I got. Should be a recall covered repair. The car could overheat and cause other problems. This problem occurred on March 10, 2014.

Dodge ram laramie1500 4x4 crew cab built in June 2012 has factory 20x9 aluminum chrome clad wheels with goodyear wrangler hp p275/60r20 tires. Problem with this is the spare tire & the factory jack. Had a rear passenger side tire blow out and had to jack the truck to fix the flat. First, the spare tire size is p235/85r17, my wheels are 20" rims and 1-1/4 higher over all. This truck has the electronic stability control (esc) which states to have the proper size rims & tires as this system may not function properly if they are different sizes. Secondly, the jack Dodge provides can't hold the weight of these trucks. This jack collapsed soon after raising the flat truck tire 1-2" off the ground, the worm gear looks like a u-bolt. Called both the dealer I purchased the truck from in December 2012 and Dodge. Neither is willing to help remedy these problems. Dodge did have a recall 12v192000 Jan 5th 6th 2012 for the spare tire not being sized correctly. Is this not the same case?. It was Sun., Jan. 19, 2014 when this electrical jack issue occurred.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Ford Escape

The vehicle was a 2014 Ford Escape. Friday evening I noticed something hanging down from the front of my car. The hard plastic and what I will describe as fire resistant insulator was 1/2 off. The pink plastic bolt in the frame was broken and further back where it appears to have been attached with a metal bolt; the hole around it on the plastic was too large. Now there are various electronic parts, belts, etc exposed. I was told by Ford that something hit the car or perhaps had been backed into by another vehicle not leaving visible damage, but causing pressure underneath, or the harsh minnesota winter caused this as they are seeing many things break. There are no signs of any damage and they refused to put it up on the jack to inspect. I do not feel that Ford is willing to even investigate their defective parts, in fact. I was told this was not a warranty problem but rather an insurance issue. Since I do not feel safe driving with all of this exposed I have tied it up to my grill with twine. The failure date was 04/04/14.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Ford Edge

My 14 month old, 2012 Ford Edge, has had numerous issues, some very serious! from the beginning, I have had issues with the sync system, the navigation system, and controlling the temperature. They have had to "update" my sync system more than once. I frequently get a "no key detected" message when driving. (push start system) the first time that happened I pulled off the road thinking it would stop running, and did $1400. 00 in damage to the car. (coverage was denied by the wheel and tire protection plan. ) later was told the car would not have stopped even if it didn't recognize that the key fob was in it. (a car-jackers dream!) I had a hole in my brake booster causing me to not have the benefit of power brakes. Found this out when I stepped on my breaks and wasn't stopping. I had the really push on them to prevent hitting a car. The battery died in 14 months. The latest is that the vacuum seal in the capless fuel system had a bad o-ring causing fuel to leak and vapors to escape. I truly believe that this car is poorly made. I'm just waiting for the next issue to surface. The failure date was Jul. 20, 2012.

car   Electrical Jack problem of GMC Envoy

Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1GKDT13S92_. On June 26,2010, I had a flat tire. I own a 2002 GMC Envoy. Luckily I was at home when I noticed I had a flat tire on the passenger side rear. I've changed flats before so I figured ok, I might as well get started. To my horror I discovered the hoist on the underside of the vehicle would not lower the spare tire. I could not believe this was happening. After trying for several hours underneath the vehicle I gave up. So my wife said call roadside assistance to help. I called them and they came to my home to assist. I had the vehicle jacked up and supported so the driver of the towtruck would take a look. Unfortunately, there was nothing he could do either. This is now total frustration. After several hours of deliberation, I decided to go on the internet to find a fix for this problem. Luckily, I found a forum of owners who had the same type of vehicle and who had experienced the same problems I had. Their suggestion worked for me, however, the real problem still exists with hoist on the vehicle. In my opinion, this is a very severe problem whick requires a recall. Gm made a huge gaffe with this one. This issue happened on Jun. 26, 2010.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Honda Civic

The car is a 2013 Honda Civic. On 22nd March 2014, I was driving my one year old Civic on interstate 55 from jackson towards baton rouge. After travelling about 50 miles with an average speed of 65 to 70 miles per hour, I suddenly faced problem with acceleration. The acceleration went crazy spiking the tachometer between 4000 and 6000 rpm and the car was slowing down though I gave the acceleration. When I gave the acceleration, it was making roaring sound and rpm on tachometer is spiking between 4000 and 6000 rpm. Car was coming to stall slowly from 65 mph, before it could come down to standstill I turned on emergency lights and pulled the vehicle on to the shoulder. Fortunately two vehicles behind me past my car merging to left lane seeing my emergency lights on. After pulling the car on to the shoulder, I have put the car on to parking gear for few minutes and then again shifted back to drive. From thereon I did not face any acceleration problem again for the rest of my 2. 5 hours journey. For safety, I just stayed on right lane and drove with constant speed of about 65 mph through out my journey. It was really frightening experience when I was driving at 65 mph and suddenly accelerator not working and going berserk and car slowing down on interstate. I would like to know what could be the problem with my car and if there are any solutions for this. Please let me know, I am really worried now to drive my car on highways and to go on long drives. It was Sat., Mar. 22, 2014 when this electrical jack issue happened.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Hyundai Tucson

The car is a 2012 Hyundai Tucson. The VIN of the problem Tucson is KM8JUCAC9C_. Today, my 2012 Tucson needed a tire put back on, after using a spare. On asphalt, level ground, I used the jack that came with my vehicle aligned as directed, and slowly lifted the car, driver front. The spare tire came off easily, without problems. As I aligned the tire to put on, the jack failed, twisting outwards and collapsing, twisting my right wrist badly. I had a jack stand under the car, or I could have been seriously hurt. However, the jack stand had been aligned for the car when the jack was lifting it. Because the jack failed it no longer aligned with the lift point, and pushed into the soft floor plate next to it. The failure of this jack is completely Hyundai's fault. I also worry that other people could be hurt by these faulty jacks. I have seen other reports made about this same issue, now that I have done research. It was Thursday, Apr. 3, 2014 when this electrical jack issue happened.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Hyundai Elantra

The vehicle involved is a 2011 Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 5NPDH4AE1B_. Car dealers are allowed to sell new cars with no spare tire or jack. I assume this is to increase the potential gas milage for advertising. Their policy is to only include a can of air which may or may not work when needed. They are also not keeping replacement tires in stock. This can of air is a hazard to keep in a car in arizona when the tempertures in the summer reach 115 degrees. And with the dealership not stocking the tires, my car was not driveable and strands the motorist. The failure date was May. 1, 2011.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Jeep Wrangler

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1J4GA59198_. 2008 Jeep Wrangler jk, equipment. The provided floor jack to change tires is insufficient. When placed in the recommended position to raise the vehicle (location in the owner's manual) the jack at full extension is not long enough to raise the vehicle. At full extension (also not recommended in the owner's manual) causes an unstable jack which increases the risk of the vehicle falling. The provided jack is too short making it unusable. To use the jack, you'd have to put makeshift blocks under it to raise it (not recommended), or buy an aftermarket jack. Hopefully, no one's been hurt yet. This electrical jack issue occurred Tuesday, June 1, 2010.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Mazda Tribute

The vehicle is a 2010 Mazda Tribute. For the past 6 months my car will periodically loose power, I would be in the middle of a busy street, in stop and go traffic, or anywhere, and suddenly have no acceleration at all. It would then jerk very violently until I just shut it off. After 2 or 3 episodes, my car would be fine for several weeks, before happening again. Early on there were no dash lights that came on and the dealership could not identify any problem. After about 4 months there was finally an engine light and a code that indicated an issue with the electronic throttle body. But the dealership says they are still not sure what is wrong with my car, because they could not duplicate the problem. Now my car is out of warranty, and I am still having the same issue, however it is occurring more frequently, to the point it is not safe to drive my car anymore. When my husband looked up the part 2 weeks ago the price was $176. 00 ¿ yesterday he called to get a price and they are now $350. 00 or more at dealerships,(grapevine Ford) that have them in stock, or dealerships that haven't jacked up the price (hiley Mazda), they are out of stock and on back order. It was Wed., Mar. 6, 2013 when this electrical jack issue happened.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Mercedes Benz S550

The car involved was a 2008 Mercedes Benz S550. I got a blow out in the rear left side tire. I was doing about 40 mph and did not go over anything that I was aware of. I went to change the tire using the supplied tire and jack. The jack was very flimsy and after I raised the vehicle the jack flipped over causing damage to my car, however I narrowly avoided personal injury. There is a plate under the vehicle at the jack contact point which also broke off the vehicle when the jack rolled over. The following are the defects I believe exist. 1. The jack is extremely flimsy and is difficult to set properly on the ground. 2. The jack plate on the car apparently is also not very stable. 3. The handle on the jack is very short and requires an extreme amount of strength to lift car. (no leverage) 4. The lug wrench is also very short and requires a lot of strength to loosen bolts, there is absolutely no leverage. I estimate the damage to my vehicle, which I blame on the defective jack to be about $750. 00. This problem occurred on 07/01/2009.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Mercury Montego

The car involved was a 2007 Mercury Montego. The factory-supplied vehicle service jack failed during a spare tire change. The jack is a standard mechanical screw jack with a 16-inch long, 3/8-inch diameter horizontal bolt screwed into a threaded support member in the jack. The threads in the threaded support member became stripped while the jack was lifting the vehicle, causing the jack to fully collapse and the vehicle to fall to the ground. The threaded nut in the support member no longer holds the 16-inch bolt in place, and metal shavings are seen on the horizontal bolt. There is no sign of thread wear on the bolt itself, so the failure is purely due to the threaded nut inside the support member of the jack. At the time of the collapse, the bolt was being turned using the factory-supplied jack handle. The jack was raised approximately 10 vertical inches from the bottom of the base to the top of the car contact point at the time of the failure. The jack had not yet lifted the vehicle enough off the ground to change the tire. This issue happened on 11/11/2012.

It has FL legal window tinting. The dash's chrome trim causes a glare issue on a sunny day, causing bright glare due to the amount of dashboard trim that is silver/chrome. It is a safety issue when there is so much glare coming from the dash area. What is Toyota's recommendation is to rectify the issue? on 05/21/13, lee bay, service director, Toyota avenues, responded: mr. Carey, I forwarded your pictures to our tech dept as well as submitted a product quality case.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Volvo S60

The vehicle is a 2003 Volvo S60. The oem jack that came with my Volvo failed miserably when I had a flat tire. The jack was never used before this incident. While the jack was placed on a level surface and was completely vertical, the force necessary to spin the jack handle caused the jack to very slowly slide sideways in an increasingly precarious position. I stopped and started over several times only to render the same result. After several attempts, I was able raise the car high enough to attempt removal of the flat tire. The jack however was very unstable. While attempting to remove the tire, the jack failed and the car fell to the ground. Luckily, the flat tire was still on the car. Since I was in my paved driveway, I was able to use another jack. Since it wasn't a Volvo jack, I was able to use wooden blocks to crib or secure the car by stacking wood under the car as the jack raised the car so it wouldn't fall off the jack. The Volvo jack is bent and unsafe to use again, even though it wasn't safe to use the first time. I am reporting it as I have found many other Volvo owners on the web who had the same experience with their Volvos. This problem occurred on 08/14/2008.

I have researched forums for 1999-2004 BMW 5 Series cars and have located 14 more people that have suffered the same fate (is has happened in 528, 540, and m5 models from 1999-2004). The repair is costing me approximately $4000. 00. If this break had occurred at highway speed the drive shaft and differential would have separated and would been free to fly around and cause severe damage to the car and anyone in it. This electrical jack problem happened on May 11, 2013.

car   Electrical Jack problem of BMW 528

VIN of the vehicle was WBADM633XX_. I recently used the jack in my 1999 BMW 528i for the first time ever a few days ago. The jack is not compatible with the car. It is labeled for 1997 and 1998 cars - not the 1999 I own. While jacking to remove a tire the jack popped of of place with force and the car fell. Luckily I had not removed the tire. I contacted BMW customer relations and they refused to provide the correct jack. BMW policy if to not address any issue after the 4year/50,000mile warranty is expired. . . . Even if it is a safety issue. Hopefully the NHTSA can address this safety issue with BMW USA. This electrical jack problem happened on Tue., May. 10, 2011.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Cadillac Escalade

The VIN of this vehicle was 3GYEK62N95_. I have a 2005 Cadillac Escalade ext, I was in las vegas and parked my vehicle in the first parking spot , which was the handicap parking in front of store . I was in there for no more than 20 minutes and my vehicle was stolen , I the called the police which gave me the number to onstar, then onstar told me they sent a signal to the truck, and the time frame was no more than 10 minutes of 8:50 . The outcome was that onstar did not locate the vehicle it was located by the police 6 days later. When I went to go to look at the truck at the tow yard I discovered that the onstar antenna was behind the rear view mirror , so the person who is stealing your vehicle just has to pull a plug out of rear view mirror and that disables the antenna. The truck will never be pick up because it will only take them two seconds from jumping in the vehicle to disable it . And the unit is behind the glove compartment which they just pull down the box and rip off the wires that connect the power and etc. . So my complaint is that onstar is not a good system to have for stolen location, I was tod to put lojack and the police told me this, so Cadillac knows this and they said that is not a good reasons for me to have Cadillac look into this or help me with asst of buying a new vehicle and trading the old one in. This problem occurred on Monday, November 27, 2006.

car   Electrical Jack problem of Cadillac DTS

The car is a 2006 Cadillac Dts. Subject 2006 Dts VIN no [xxx] I had my first flat tire in about 15 yrs. I decided to save time and change the tire myself. Once I jacked the car up far enough to let weight off the rim the jack buckled which could have been very unsafe. Thankfully I was only left stranded. Are the quality of all gm jacks made so poorly? I contaced a family member who provided an adequate jack. I am glad I nor anyone else was hurt due to this jack failure. I intend to purchase a new trolley jack to carry with me as a replacement for the less than acceptable jack which came with the car. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This issue happened on Thu., Nov. 25, 2010.
