While traveling 35 mph the abs lights, and brake lights illuminated, followed by a chime noise that sounded through out the vehicle. Then a ticking noise prior to the vehicle loosing all electrical power, this happens everyday! this a very dangerous situation and when this happens I have to sit and wait for awhile, once for more than 30 min then car cuts back on and works fine until the abs lights, come on and the engine light followed by the chimes and the ticking the car cuts off again. Can not get a mechanic to fix it they have told me that there is no way to fix it that Chrysler knows about the recall and refuses to do anything about it. I have had the battery replaced. Problem #2 is the mounts that hold the motor are corroded and rusted. I was told that this is another defect and there have been instances where the motor just falls out. Two mounts have been replaced but I still hear the knocking and a pulling sensation sometimes. First incident was in January the past two months it happens everyday at least once a day where the car just cuts off. It was 01/03/2014 when this electronic stability control issue happened.

Also contacted local dealer ferrario's(in towanda PA) about this recall they said they can't get the parts to fix it. Their response was drive straight and don't hit bumps. Told Chrysler hotline the comments all I get from them is "it's not covered under the recall & we suggest to get it fixed and hold on to all receipts to see if it will be covered at a future date. Isn't this like the gm recall that has killed people?. The failure date was Mon., May. 5, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Dodge Charger

The vehicle involved is a 2012 Dodge Charger. We were driving and the abs and skid lights illuminated on the dash, all the function lights illuminated the steering column locked and the car just halted and stalled. Everything was dead, unable to start and the wipers were going. The wipers were never turned on but kept running despite the car being "dead" wipers in off position . Towed home and then to dealership (dealership has no off hour gate access) told (2) days later the battery was dead on a 2 yr old vehicle, then I received a second call stating the alternator was the culprit. The alternator needs replacement, and no one can explain the rhyme or reason why it needs to be replaced on a 2yr old vehicle. The vehicle also has automatic push start and will not work sometimes unless the remoteless key is pressed to start the vehicle on the start-button (instead of pressing with finger, use the remote less entry- I was told this resets the reading- having to do this once/twice a month). This electronic stability control problem happened on Wednesday, May. 14, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Dodge Nitro

The vehicle is a 2007 Dodge Nitro. Back break lights go out continuously. I have had them replaced several times while under warranty. Lights are still going out but now my extended warranty is over. Dealership said they would have to run a diagnostic test before they could find out what is wrong. This is very concerning because it is a documented problem since the first year I purchased the car in 2007 and the problem still exists. My rear windows stopped working, had to have them replaced which I found odd because I hardly used the back windows. Driver's side handle has snapped in half. This makes for a safety issue because I cannot get out of the car without rolling down the window and then unlocking myself then roll up the window before turning off my car. Also, the power window control has snapped off as well for controlling the front passenger window. I'm concerned I will be trapped in my vehicle if I continue to lose power functions to the car. Heating unit works sporadically. Took it to local mechanic he fixed it. It worked temporarily and then stopped. Called dealership and once again was told that they would have to perform a diagnostic test; which is understandable if this was the only problem, but unfortunately this is not. This issue happened on Thu., Jul. 3, 2008.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Ford Windstar

The vehicle involved was a 2002 Ford Windstar. All of the following happened at the same time: abs and brake lights went on and stay on. O/d light flashing. Odometer and speedometer stop working. The electronic compass, remaining fuel info. , automatic electronic diagnostic and electronic temp. Showing errors. Electronic sliding door would not open unless engine is not running. Power windows stopped working 6 months ago, not sure if it is related. I had a mechanic replaced the alternator and checked the brakes. It did not fix the problems and there was nothing wrong with the brakes. I took it to Ford dealer and I was told that the abs module could be the problem because they replaced a lot of them. The abs module supposedly messing up the whole electronic system. It has less than 65,000 miles and I'm scared to drive it because the electronic system might suddenly cause other problems and cause an accident. The electronic sliding doors already would not open unless the engine is not running. In case of an emergency or a crash, someone might not be able to get out and be trapped inside because the doors and windows would not open. I was told by a Ford customer service that there is no recall to fix the problem or look into it even though they admitted they've been having similar problems to a lot of Ford vehicles. This problem occurred on May. 9, 2014.

A tractor trailer was in the process of cutting my off when I honked and he proceed back into his lane. I had braked quickly and with both hands on the wheel when the car lost control and I was swerving within the lane for around 2 minutes before I could regain control of the car. I almost clipped another car as well as the median, but barley missed both. I had both hands on the wheel, I did not stomp on the brakes, and yet I still lost control of the car. It also constantly sways to one side as well as the brakes lose grip if you run over any bump at all.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Hyundai Elantra

The car involved is a 2013 Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5NPDH4AE0D_. The first incident occurred as I was on an on ramp about to merge on to a highway. The car lost power and acted like it was about to stall - though there was gas (it was about 1/4 full); its an automatic so as far as I could tell it was not in the wrong gear. It revved up but did not gain any speed. Somehow it recovered and I was able to continue without further incident. I am not sure where this falls - but even though we balance and rotate the tires every 5000 miles the car has been pulling to the right. When it is windy or if the road is bumpy you have to grip the steering wheel very tightly to keep it in the lane. This electronic stability control issue occurred Sat., May. 3, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Jeep Grand Cherokee

The vehicle was a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The check engine light came on as I was leaving work. So I took it to auto zone and they did a diagnostic on it and they came back with a few possible oxygen sensor, exhaust leak, engine malfunction indicator. So I made an appointment with a Chrysler dealership. The check engine light stayed on a couple of days then when I left work the afternoon I was to take it in to dealership the check engine light didn't come on. When I got to dealership I told them the light didn't come on. They said they might still try to figure out problem doing a diagnostic. Anyway a couple hours later they came back and said it was the (tcm) which is the transfer control module. It's in the computer part and it causes hesitation in the transmission and could cause other problems if not fixed. Now mind you it's a $900 fix which is expensive. My particular vehicle has a nag on it, it's part of the mcgeorge Mercedes Benz Jeep Grand Cherokee. I'm surprised there's been no recall on this. This issue happened on 05/04/14.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Kia Motor Rondo

The car is a 2007 Kia Motor Rondo. Vehicle had the stop lamp switch replaced under NHTSA campaign 09v130000 (kia recall sc077) in June 2009. On 4/6/14 the replacement stop lamp switch failed causing the esc malfunction light to illuminate, the brake lights to fail to illuminate, and brake-transmission interlock to prevent the transmission from being either shifted from n to r or from p to r without using the shift lock release tab. I had just backed out of a parking space at one store with no problems, crossed the street, and attempted to park at another store when the transmission would not shift out of drive. Had to use shift lock release to get vehicle home and to dealer on 4/7/14. Dealer confirmed failure of the replacement switch, charged me $69. 02 in parts and labor to replace it. Since kia expanded the recall in April 2013 to cover all remaining Rondo's, I feel that kia should have replaced the switch under warranty as this indicates a lingering problem with the switches across various model years and other kia and Hyundai models. I also feel that NHTSA should investigate failure rates of the switches replaced under NHTSA campaign 09v130000 (kia recall sc077) because kia apparently has not made satisfactory progress in resolving this safety issue given the failure of the unit placed in my vehicle. It was 04/06/14 when this electronic stability control issue occurred.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Land Rover LR3

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Land Rover Lr3. Landrover lr 3 have a known problem of having water collect in the sunroof area due to blockage in some drainage tube from debris. Cleaning of these tubes is not a regular part of maintenance if you take your vehicle to the dealership for scheduled maintenance or service. The water collect and leaks into the cabin directly over the radio and middle console. It also leaks over the dashboard near the passenger heat register and in the driver's side dashboard area over the heat register. Water seeps into the electric system (the main bcm) that controls many important functions of the vehicle operation. So far I have a short in the radio. Many of the landrover forums online have several customers and owners of landrover Lr3 that have experienced this problem. This defect in the drainage system for the sunroof could cause serious damage / shorting out of the bcm that controls the entire vehicle. The failure date was Friday, January 3, 2014.. Read more...

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Land Rover Freelander

The car is a 2002 Land Rover Freelander. The VIN of this Freelander is SALNY22232_. The brake lights sometimes work and sometimes do not work (cited in 2 incidents by the police). All parts are fine (by check-up of a repair workshop), and no repair can be possibly done. Probably, the height of the brake lights above the ground is too low, so that it is sometimes too damp or wet (after snow or rain) for the brake lights to work properly. When they dry up, they work again. Next, the 2 brake lights are on the 2 corners of the bumper, and the central brake light is high on the tailgate. Theoretically, the 3 brake lights give warning enough when the car stops. However, there are 2 tail lights are high on the fenders (the 2 sides of the car's tailgate), relatively far away from the 2 brake lights on the bumper. The 2 tail lights give a wrong impression to any drivers behind this car, and let those drivers misunderstand the tail lights to be the brake lights (even the 2 police officers misunderstood in the 2 incidents). This will cause collision in reality. This electronic stability control problem happened on Thursday, January 16, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Lexus LS460

The vehicle involved is a 2007 Lexus Ls460l. The vehicle dashboard comes up with several warnings. 1) check vsc system. 2) check pcs system. 3)check abs. 4) brake malfunction. 5) check brake system. It says to pull over and to not drive the vehicle. Lexus diagnosed my vehicle as needing to have the brake actuator replaced at a cost of nearly $3500! the dealer said that they had already replaced several of these on this model vehicle in just the past few months. After looking online, I found that there are a lot of Lexus owners with the exact same problem that occurred in my vehicle, with some owners already having the part replaced twice! this is obviously an ongoing problem. Lexus have since made a newer, improved version of the part. There was also a tsib (technical service information bulletin) issued on December 2, 2009 for "brake actuator knock noise" l-sb-0178-09 Lexus are now covering this part for 48 months or 50,000 miles. I believe strongly that there should be more done as this is a very serious problem that is a known defect. A safety recall is necessary before someone gets seriously injured or killed as a result of this know defect. This is a huge safety concern for me as this is our family vehicle that we drive on trips and it is used as a daily driver for my wife and child. This electronic stability control problem happened on Monday, May 5, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Lexus LS460

The car involved was a 2012 Lexus Ls460. The VIN of the problem Ls460 is 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. The failure date was Monday, May 6, 2013.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Mazda MAZDA3

The vehicle is a 2012 Mazda Mazda3. I was driving along a city street on the way to a mall when I noticed the traction control warning light come on. My car then started to decelerate. I pressed on the gas and noticed that the needle on my tachometer was running high indicating high rate of rpm. I could not drive faster than 35 mph for fear of redlining and possibly damaging the engine. I went back home and parked my car. Later when I started my car the traction control warning light had turned off and I was able to drive the car normally again. This is a very serious matter that could result in serious accident if it had happened on a freeway or on a mountain road. I no longer feel safe driving this car, not knowing when this might occur again. I will be having the car inspected at the dealership since it is still under warranty. This electronic stability control problem happened on May. 10, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Mazda MPV

Every time this Mazda Mpv gets a little wet it will not go over 40 mph. I have contacted the dealership with no return phone call or email. The coils allow moisture to get in which will cause the vehicle to think it is overheating and will not go no matter what you do. I was on the highway when this happened in jacksonville during rush hour and being stuck in the middle of no where because of a faulty coil that the dealership does not want to take responsibility for, is beyond frustrating. I have kids that have been in the vehicle other times when this has happened and we had to sit in the van or go to gas stations and wait until it was somewhat derivable again. I have read forum after forum and there seems to be a lot of people having this issue with their Mpv, ranging from 1993-2006 models. Something needs to be done with this before someone gets hurt. This issue happened on Thursday, May. 1, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Mercedes Benz ML320

The vehicle is a 2002 Mercedes Benz Ml320. While driving on the highway at 60mph the vehicle started shaking violently. The brakes started engaging on their own pulling the car to the left and right and nearly bringing the car to a sudden stop. It took a lot of effort to keep the vehicle from pulling into the other lanes and causing an accident. The bas/esp light came on the dash and has stayed on now. This all lasted for about 10 seconds. I was in the 3rd lane of a 4 lane highway during moderate traffic. I was almost rear ended by two different vehicles. I have been researching this issue and found many other drivers with the same thing. This is a dangerous defect and needs to be addressed. It doesn't take much for a sudden change in direction and speed to cause a severe accident when driving on the highway, and knowing that this vehicle is capable and know for doing this makes it very dangerous. It makes me wonder how many fatal accidents have occurred due to this problem, but no one knew because it was just assumed the to be driver error. This problem occurred on May 12, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Mercedes Benz E320

The vehicle involved was a 2004 Mercedes Benz E320. The VIN of the car is WDBUF65J34_. I left my home in cincinnati, OH at 8:25, with a 1/2 tank of gas, drove ~ 3 miles to hwy126 and merged to 75s. I moved from the right to the middle to the left lane. After being at 50 mph ~ 2 minutes on the left lane, the car suddenly stopped. The dashboard was all lit up with warning signs, check engine, brakes and oil. I put my hazzard light on, put the car in park, turned the key off, and then back on. The same warning signs came on and the car did not start. I called mercedes assitance who advised to call 911 and that a tow truck will arrive in 1 hour. I called 911 and surprisingly got a voice message that all operators are busy! a minute later an operator came on the line, she asked where I was and I told her that I was on the left (high speed lane). She asked me if I was in a black mercedes. She indicated that a dispatcher is on the way. At 8:51 I called aaa to get a towtruck earlier. They said they will come in 45 min. A car assistance van came and eventually the police car. They stopped behind my car, and tried to turn the car on and were unable to, they asked me to put it in neutral but the gear would not move. The policeman stopped the traffic on the highway, asked me to step out of the car while he managed to put the gear on neutral and asked me to sit back in the car and steer. They manualy pushed the car to the right shoulder but I was not able to steer as the power steering was not working. At 9:18 the aaa truck came and towed the car to the mercedes dealership. They diagnosed the problem as a sudden failure of the crankshaft position sensor and replaced it for a charge of $463. 46. I found on the web that several mercedes models have had this problem occur but there has never been a recall. The sudden complete failure of a car in the midst of rush hour traffic creating a major hazard to me and other drivers needs the attention of the NHTSA. This electronic stability control issue occurred Friday, April 25, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Mitsubishi Lancer

The car involved was a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer evolution. Acd (active center differential) pump has failed and without this pump providing pressure to the all wheel drive system, the vehicle gets stuck on driveways at a stop where the tire and wheel packages are on different elevated surfaces. The reason the pump has failed is due to placement of the pump on the vehicle. Mitsubishi has designed the vehicle to have the pump to be located directly behind the rear passenger wheel. Due to this, while driving on severe weather roads (particularly snow salted roads), the dirt, water and salt gets kicked up to the position of the pump which corrodes the fittings and the pump itself. This then causes the pump to fail over time. It could have been easily remedied by relocating the pump or anti-corrosion protection and better sealing. Being located in southern California, I would have thought that this would have never happened to me, but even driving only twice through snow roads in the past 3 years has corroded the pump to failure. Mitsubishi has denied that this is part of the power train warranty, which means it will be a $2000+ dollar fix. This problem occurred on May. 2, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Nissan Altima

The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1N4AL3AP2D_. My 2013 Nissan Altima wanders lt and rt on the interstate at speeds from 65-75 mph. It is even more noticeable with winds 10+ mph. You have to grip the steering wheel tight with both hands if you don't want to wander into other lanes or off the road. This problem is even multiplied when it is raining, if feels like the car is hydro-planing. It is scary and dangerous. After researching this on google I found multiple sites where 2013 Nissan Altima owners are experiencing the same thing. I only have 9,000 miles on this car and feel like it is dangerous to drive on the interstate. The dealership says they are looking into it, we all know they are not going to admit to anything.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Toyota Prius

The vehicle having this issue was a 2010 Toyota Prius. Ever since acquiring this vehicle earlier this year, I have been experiencing loss of breaking for a second every time I hit a pothole and bumpy spot. It happens every other time. Upon goggling this problem, I learned that the problem was first reported to NHTSA way back in 2009. But I do not see any recalls related to this problem. Your website says you have received about 33 complains. Unless I missed something, is there any status report from Toyota or the recall that specifically addresses this problem? also, I live in the east coast, specifically in NJ. We had a brutal winter this year. In one incident, I was driving up a slightly elevated road (barely 2--5% incline) in a 25mph residential road with slightly slippery road (not really black ice per se). I loss control and traction control lite up and started beeping. While trying to bring the car in control, my car ended up on the other side (thankfully there were no vehicles parked on the other side or any oncoming vehicles) and then shifted to the right but finally managed to bring it back in control. Other misc information: I learned about a recall earlier this year related to ecu board programming update from the news media (since I was a new owner, Toyota probably didn't have my information so never got recall notice) and I went to the dealer for update. I was hoping software update might also address pothole/loss of break problem but it has not helped. This issue happened on Jan. 6, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Toyota Camry Hybrid

The car is a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. The brake light illuminated on my dash as I was sitting in stop and go traffic. About 10 minutes later, I was traveling about 55 mph and attempted to push my brakes to stop for a stop light. The brakes did not respond normally and it took about 4 times as long to get the car to stop compared to normal responsiveness. Simultaneously, my entire dash board lit up with warning lights. I proceeded to pull over to a safe place, going maybe 10mph, I went to park and rolled into the curb in front of my car because I could not get the brakes to stop the car. I placed the car in park. All indicator lights cleared and brakes started working again. I had the car towed to a Toyota certified mechanic, who told me that nothing had registered in the computer. The car was then driven a bit to try to recreate the problem and towed to a Toyota dealer. Eventually the c1345 and c1468 codes appeared. Toyota was contacted and recommended the accumulator assembly be replaced, brake system bleed, reset memory and calibrated linear valve. Expensive repair was completed and the car is now driving again. The failure date was Monday, Apr. 14, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Volkswagen Passat

I purchased a 2014 Volkswagen Passat tdi sel on 03-31-2014. I was driving it home when I went through a freeway interchange at highway speeds. The road was dry and other vehicles were going through the interchange at a speed faster than me. The electronic stability control (esc) applied the brakes in such a way that it tried to straight my vehicle out int the turn, causing me to nearly hit the guard rail. I took my car in to the vw dealer the next morning and told them about the esc issue and the fact the car pulled to the right (alignment issue). They checked it and found nothing and even said the alignment was fine. They said the esc sounded normal to them. I've been driving the same roads for 20 years and I knew this wasn't normal. I made videos of the esc car slowing me down below highway speeds around sweeping corners. I was taking my daughter home one day and a Ford explorer nearly rear ended me. I've taken the car back two additional times, during which they corrected the alignment and fixed a trim panel that was falling down. The esc they maintain is working perfectly. The funny thing is I also have a 2014 vw jetta tdi that never engages the esc, though is equipped with the same system. I drove a 2014 vw cc as a loaner and the esc never engaged. This system is going to kill someone if vw is allowed to tell consumers there isn't a problem with their programming or hardware. The failure date was Mar. 21, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The vehicle involved was a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta. The vehicle had a crash. Car was only under my possession for one year and seven months. . . It was leased brand new . 3/25/14-when got into the car to go to work, car would not start. Discovered it had no battery power. Horn stopped working. Previous to this, week before thermostat light was going on and off. Car was at 14,030 miles. Volkswagen roadside assistance came and brought vehicle to nearest service center which is actually where I bought the car. Service center confirmed dead battery. The dealership including the person who sold me the vehicle attempted to charge me $240 for it and considered it "wear and tear like the tires," until I called Volkswagen customer service number right on the location who confirmed that my battery was covered at 24,000 miles or 2 years whatever came first. Volkswagen service center confirmed that horn was in fact inoperable due to blown fuse and replaced it. I was informed by the service agent that the thermostat light was due to low anti-freeze and it was topped off. In addition I requested I multi-point inspection which they conducted. Shortly after receiving the car back on 3/26/14, I noticed by voltage adapter was not working. I assumed it to be a defective phone charger so I purchased a new one. 4/8/14- I tried to use the new charger for my phone in each of the the front and back adapter slots. That is when I realized these was something wrong with my adapters possibly after the replacement of the new battery on 3/25/14. My plan was to contact the service center and schedule a check up and have the adapters checked but unfortunately I never was able to do so. That day I was involved in a car accident where I was unable to turn the steering wheel into the exit and ended up crashing into metal guardrail. Car had shut off and. Airbag deployed. Car was ruled as a total loss. The failure date was March 25, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Volvo V70

I just purchased about 2 months ago a 1998 Volvo V70 used on 4/3/2014 for 3000. 00 . The vehicle drove just fine up until two weeks ago where the transmission seems to be slipping. While I was riding on i695 and was going about sixty miles per hour when the car jerked and cut off, meaning blinking in and out of the electrical system along with the engine as I was pulling over on the shoulder, which is terribly unsafe. I assumed and thought Volvo's were great on miles and transmission so I didn't expect it to be having these type of issues. I am a first time Volvo purchaser and highly disappointed and it's to expensive for all the hassles. All of the minor issues were expected because of the vehicle being a used car. Also, I cannot even check the transmission fluid levels in order to see if all I need is some transmission fluid, the dipstick that leads to the transmission is stuck, as in I have tried pulling, twisting and turning but to no avail. After purchasing a 300 dollar key pad from the dealer I expect more from the manual and at least to be able to check all fluids on the vehicle. If these minor issues didn't evolve into major issues with my Volvo vehicle I would not have an issue. Yet the problem is that these minor issues are indeed causing major repairs which is simply unacceptable and causing unsafe driving hazardous situations that could indeed affect the life of myself and other drivers. Thank you very much for listen and hopefully directly addressing my concerns.

The car involved was a 2008 BMW 328i. I was driving my 328i in the morning on the way to work, in a residential neighborhood, traveling about 10 mph (in a school zone), when the windshield wipers suddenly came on without me turning them on. At the same time, my entire dash board control system panel and the area between the speedometer and tachometer lit up with several system error messages: 1) check control messages: control systems! drive moderately. Restraint system malfunction! transmission malfunction! cruise control malfunction! 2) pass. Restraint system: fault in passenger-restraint system affecting airbag, belt tensioner or belt-force limiter. Continue to wear the safety belt.

When you turn the car off, the wipers do not stop until the key is removed! the car had to be towed to the local dealership where I purchased it brand new. They say they are not aware of this problem. I also emailed BMW USA north America. My request is that you investigate these issues with BMW USA north America. Surely, they have more intelligence about the nature and scope of these types of problem and need to be transparent in advising consumers accordingly before the underlying cause of the defect leads to accidents and injuries. This problem occurred on Fri., May. 2, 2014.

car   Electronic Stability Control problem of Jaguar XK

The vehicle was a 2014 Jaguar Xk. I bought a new Xk in August. I have to question the rationale for equipping it with high performance tires (virtual racing slicks) in minnesota. On a warm summer day with only a little rain, the tires lose traction frequently. In winter they are downright dangerous. Even with only an inch of snow, the front wheels lose traction in going around a corner at only five miles an hour. The real wheels have so little traction that even with the traction control and stability control systems turned on, the rear end fishtails when turning. Our street is flat and yet, with only a little snow on the road, the car can not move over 2 -3 mph without losing traction so it inches along, if it moves at all. It seems to be the height of stupidity to assume that most drivers would drive over 120 miles and hour more often than they drive in rain or snow. What are the Jaguar marketing people (and NHTSA) thinking? people who can afford to pay $90,000 for a car want something that is safe and they don't drive over 120 mph so don't need or want high performance racing tires that are suitable only for dry pavement. What good does it do to require cars to come equipped with reaction control and stability control when they are allowed to equip a car with tires that totally defeat those systems? you require air bags, center tail lights, etc, in the interest of safety, but allow cars to be sold with dangerous tires unsuitable for the climate they are to be driven in. Shouldn't NHTSA require cars to be equipped with safe tires when they are sold? if someone wants to buy unsafe tires after that, ok; but I should be able to expect a car to be safe under typical driving conditions when I buy it. Rain and snow are typical driving conditions. This problem occurred on Dec. 18, 2013.
