The vehicle was a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt. I was driving my chevy Cobalt when I arrived at the gas station I could not turn off the car. The key was stuck in the driving position and would not release. I then proceeded to go to my father's house to try and have him help me remove the key and shut off the car. He was not able to as well. I then called a Chevrolet dealer located on sw 152 st in miami, FL where I was told that this was a recall problem and that I shoul;d bring in the vehicle but that it would take about a week to fix. On the way there, my car began to overheat. I then pulled over and tried again to attempt to shut off the car and remove the key. The car reached 300 degrees farenheit and soon after shut off, leaving me stranded with my two small children. I had the car towed to a mechanic in hialeah, FL where I was told that the engine was blown due to the car overheating. I then called gm and explained this to them, I then was advised to call the service manager at miami lakes Chevrolet. The car has since been towed there as I was told the car would need to be diagnosed. However, miami lakes Chevrolet is now hassling me that they can not touch my vehicle because it is a rebuilt title vehicle, although I have repeatedly explained that had my car been able to be cut off then it would not have overheated to it's maximum and I would still have a vehicle. I am very upset as I was unaware of the key ignition recall and I am now left carless which is my livihood for my kids and family as well as I am still making payments on a vehicle which is not functioning due to a recall I had not clue about!. It was Mar. 29, 2014 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The car involved is a 2006 Ford F-350 sd. This year along with other years have a problem with the egr valve and turbo. I understand that there was a deal where Ford had to repair emergency vehicles with this same problem but not a normal everyday consumer. There are many complaints regarding this engine blowing head gaskets and egr valve issues which makes the truck suddenly have lose of power when driving along with other issues as smoking and engine lights going on. As you can read on line everyone that has had this problem is really frustrated and Ford will not stand behind this engine. The diesel truck should not have this problem at 79000 miles. This is why we have purchased this vehicle. I would think a decision had been made to put this engine in trucks knowing that there was an issue would stand behind it. I guess not enough people have been killed yet or seriously hurt. Just because Ford will not be reimbursed for the repairs they will not stand behind this problem after the warranty runs out. Which it has with us. I feel that something should be done. We have pulled a 15,000 lbs boat behind this truck and it could suddenly lost power and could have killed someone. Has my husband was driving it on a busy highway it suddenly lost power and starting smoking. Someone could have been seriously hurt but I guess because no one was and no one has been killed because of this problem no one will pay to repair. It is sad that our tax dollars help dig this car makers out of debt but they won't stand behind their workmanship. Why doesn't the safety board make Ford repair this issue. Many people are really frustrated and would like Ford to repair. It is not the consumers fault there was a bad engine. 2006 is not the only year. This is a large safety issue when you are driving and suddenly lose power on your vehicle at least I would think so. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred 02/04/2014.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Ford Five Hundred. From the day I bought the car the a/c has not worked properly. It only cools at highway speeds or when temperature outside is less than 70 degrees, the engine has never idled smoothly and water collects in the doors. The main issue I've been having is that it surges at stop lights and totally shuts down going down the road. Motor, gauges everything shuts down sometimes for 8-10 seconds. This is sporadic and more common when the a/c is in use. I have had the throttle body cleaned and reprogramed several times with no change what so ever. I just had a new one installed and it shut down on me within 1 mile of dealership. It has been very frustrating to say the least. I've been saying it is something with the a/c since day one but all they wanted to do is replace the throttle body. I am at my wits end and just want it fixed!. It was 04/05/10 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The car was a 2010 GMC Terrain. The VIN of the car is 2CTALDEWXA_. Cam shaft position actuator & cylinoid & balance shaft chain malfunctioning four times between 65,000 & 97,111. Two dealerships stated that they weren't aware that this was a recurring problem, even though all dealerships have access to the gm global site that lists all repairs and this new model had excessive powertrain repair issues due to the 2. 4 liter engine. Gm customer care utilized stall tactics by insisting that an "oil consumption" test be done that caused wasted miles and time and stalled correction of the problem by pushing the statute of limitations past the 4 year limit because they knew the car should have been repaired with a new engine or new car. Neither dealership had the integrity to assist me as the consumer with this issue, in fact I had to seek assistance from external agencies to even learn that there was a complaint process higher than the dealership and customer care when there are repeated repairs for the same the issue. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred 11/04/2011.

The car involved is a 2004 GMC Envoy xuv. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1GKES12SX4_. My car overheated on a normal day, about 80 degrees outside. I checked and replaced a defective thermostat, and started the engine only to find it misfiring badly for the first time. I gained advise from a local auto store and changed my spark plugs. When I pulled out the old ones, I found three of the six covered in oil. Upon further research, I was instructed to remove the manifold and replace the tube seals but the plastic manifold cover would not come off as indicated in a gm mechanics manual. This is the last of several problems I've had with the 2004 GMC Envoy xuv 2wd inline 6. I see many complaints on the oily spark plug issue and cracked manifold but no tsbs. Last year, I had my a/c compressor go out and replaced, my gas tank leak and replaced under a 'special warranty', a diagnosis that my heater core is bad, all three motor mounts go out and replaced, and a number of various small electronic components go out. I need GMC to correct these issues outstanding with my vehicle and expect appropriate action from them. I spent well over $40000 for this vehicle and its not even 10 years old yet. Gm has been well known for long life of their engines and body frames, and have said so on their behalf. They need to live up to the reputation I have so loyally painted for them. It was Sunday, Sep. 1, 2013 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The car involved is a 2003 Acura Mdx. VIN of the vehicle was 2HNYD18623_. I warmed vehicle up and when I went to drive out of the drive it wouldn't go forward or backwards,but slowly it kicked in. I started down the road and it would go away then just stop right where I was. I would shut it off,then restart and it would go then stop dead in the road. Then it wouldn't go at all. I was on a sharp curve on a small hill and was almost hit twice by an 18 wheeler. I had to back down this hill on this curve and almost went over the embankment. I called my mechanic who came,and he tried to drive it doing the same as it did to me. Unfortunately he had to back ,it down a bigger hill into someone's driveway,and then it had to be towed. Prior to this I had not had one problem,but not a good day for this to happen it -9 degrees. I am trying to find out from Honda if others have had any problems like this. I was out in frigid temps for over 2 hours,and not only am I 65,but I am a severe diabetic. I live way out in the country and now have no transportation for emergencies,and I certainly can't have the car fixed,they are saying $3000-3500. Can you please give me any info,this can't be a first. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred Friday, Jan. 3, 2014.

The car involved was a 2005 Acura Tsx. In June of 2012, I was traveling at approximately 60mph on a state highway when a loud grinding noise began coming from the engine. After a few moments the sound stopped and hot air began coming through my vents. I turned off my ac and pulled off the highway. This happened on a weekend and I took my car into the Acura dealership on Monday. I was told that my ac compressor had disintegrated on the inside and sent metal shavings and shrapnel through the entire hvac system. I had the compressor replaced with an aftermarket compressor to save money, the dealer flushed and dried all lines and components to remove any traces of metal and debris. The entire ordeal cost nearly $1,700. In August of 2013 my compressor once again disintegrated sending debris throughout my hvac system. According to the dealer, this occurred one month outside of the warranty on the aftermarket part. The same process had to be repeated and I was told it would cost an additional $1,800 in repairs and labor. I do not understand why the 2005 Tsx was not included in the class action settlement when it uses the same compressor as it's predecessor the 2004 Tsx which was included in the settlement. I have heard of many instances of this failure happening in the 2005's. It was June 30, 2012 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The VIN of the problem Accord is 1HGCP36879_. A federal class action lawsuit claims that 2008-2010 Honda Accords have “a systematic design defect that enables oil to enter into the engine’s combustion chamber. ” the defect causes excessive oil consumption, premature spark plug degradation and engine malfunction. In my 2009 Honda Accord, this has caused cylinder misfires on the following three dates, including spark plug failure, multiple spark plug replacements and engine trouble: - June 21, 2012 - April 18, 2013 - September 17, 2013 Honda has settled this lawsuit but details are still unavailable. This problem occurred on Thu., Jun. 21, 2012.. Read more...

The car involved was a 2011 Hyundai Tucson. The car would not start when I went to start it up. It was parked outside overnight in 20 degree weather and just clicked when I went to start it. I had to call Hyundai roadside assistance to come and jump the car. They did and it took them a couple of tries and they had to use their vehicle, not the portable starter. They said that the battery was drained. There was no reason for that because there were no lights left on. I took it in for service and they checked the battery and said it was it happened again on February 3, 2013 and I had to do the same thing. I had the dealership check the battery and it was fine. On March 15, 2013, the dealership checked the battery and it registered a strong charge. The dealership wanted me to leave the car there overnight to duplicate the conditions of the car not starting up, but were not willing to let me use a free loaner. As the temperature warmed up, it was not an issue. However, today I went to start my car and leave for work, the vehicle did not start up. It just clicked, the radio worked, lights worked, but the engine would not turn over. I am taking the vehicle to the dealership later today and they will let me use a loaner for free. I hope that they are able to diagnose and fix the problem as I need my vehicle for transportation. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred Dec. 26, 2012.

The vehicle was a 2003 Hyundai Xg350. My vehicle has been having a hesitation problem for some time now. I have taken it to several mechanics and have not found the problem after spending several thousand dollars. I took it to the local dealer (brown Hyundai) in laredo TX and they point to the catalytic converters (3) and the oxygen sensors. I have had a mechanic remove the catalytic converts and tell me there is nothing wrong with the converters. The vehicle exhaust system reaches over 500 degrees. I have measured it with a heat gun. While I do not know what the proper temperature should be I know over 500 degrees is way to high. While I went to pick up my Hyundai at the dealer he told me they had just had 2 other vehicles Xg350's with the exact problem. If you go on line and read some of the codes they refer too "band 1 and bank 2 system too lean", this is a very common problem without an exact solution. I believe the code is p0174 and p0171. Both the mechanics I have hired and the dealer have checked the list of possible problems which include: intake air leaks oxygen sensors ignition misfiring fuel injectors fuel pressure mass air flow sensor. It was 06/05/13 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The car involved is a 2003 Infiniti G35. First defect:
when I would start my car the lights would go out and the radio, heating and cooling buttons. The fan would come onto high and switch to airconditioning. I could not turn it down or turn it off or turn on my defroster when it was 30 degrees in the morning which made my visibility very poor. The only way to get this to stop was to pull the fuses. We check the recall history and found that it was only a courtesy recall and wouldn't be covered even after reading that hundreds of G35 owners were all having the same problem. We had to have the radio electronics removed from the car and sent out to be fixed. I think this issue would be consisted a safety issue when you don't have heat or a defroster. Second defect:
the problem started while the car was idling and it would stall. Then 3 days later while driving at 50mph the car tried to stall and it lost all power and then the dash lights came on indicating service needed. The car seem to lack power. Did a recall check and found that all the conditions pointed to the cam shaft position censor failing. We checked the VIN# and of course my car isn't one that is on their recall list for the same problem they have on other G35 models. This could be a serious safety issue causing an accident when you stall and have no control of your vehicle going down the highway. Every issue I have had with my car has been on the companies recall list but not my VIN # for some reason. This issue to need to reviewed and corrected. Third defect:
we have had to have the motor replaced twice in the drivers door that operates the electric window. Now the right door window is not working. If it does open it will get stuck and we have trouble getting it to come up. We have to keep it locked to avoid it being opened. It was 05/01/2011 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The car involved is a 2008 Jeep Wrangler 4-dr 4x4. I am having a problem with my integrated power module (ipm). It is causing my safety bag lght to come on (not knowing if it would deploy) but that is not the only problem with the module. It's also causing my front lights to come on when the car is off and I am getting electrical shocks every time I touch my door. The most important issue is it sometimes turns off or I can't turn it on because my electronics goes completely off. I know this because when it happens I go into the box remove and replace the cable or plugs and it starts working. I would hate this to happen when I'm driving, which would cause my power steering and shifting to lockup leaving me with no options and maybe with no safety bag. I know this to be true because the vehicle has turned off on me when I was leave my parking space at work. I could not turn or shift the vehicle because all the electronic turned off. I have already replace my battery terminal cable (battery to the ipm) due to corrosion. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred Thu., Oct. 20, 2011.

The car is a 2009 Kia Motor Optima. The VIN of this vehicle was KNAGE22849_. The vehicle had three expensive problems in rapid succession. The first was the transmission which started a severely hard downshift on braking from about 25 mph. The whole car shuddered and felt as if we slammed on the brakes for a second. After troubleshooting, kia told us we needed a new transmission for $2700 with no help from kia. After this repair, not even two weeks later, the air bag light came on. Diagnosis from kia, defective sensor in the passenger seat, not covered by warranty and a $1500 replacement estimate. We decided not to fix this item because we were going to trade the car in on another make and cut our losses. The third problem which occurred one week later was a failure to start after parking the car for an hour at a doctor's office, stranding my wife in 95 degree heat. The car was towed to a non-kia repair shop as I no longer want anything to do with kia who will deny any claim against their so-called quality products and will be disposing of the car as soon as it is running again since kia does not stand behind its defective products. After three major failures in a short period of time we feel this is an unsafe vehicle. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) problem happened on Tuesday, Apr. 2, 2013.

The car involved was a 1998 Kia Motor Sportage. This is a repeat of confirmation no. 10514519, but with "was there an injury or fatality? marked "yes" above. Driver and passenger scalded with boiling radiator fluid with foot on pedal, had to keep foot on petal to get off road. On may 30, 2013, at approx. 4:30pm edt, I was driving my 1998 kia Sportage on the garden state parkway north, just after entering the highway at exit 98 in wall, NJ. The air conditioner had not been working well. The local temperature was in the high 90s, near 100 degrees. I had a passenger in the front passenger seat. Suddenly, anti-freeze smoke came out of the dashboard vents, then, hot scalding anti-freeze began falling on my right foot as it was on the accelerator pedal. At the same time, the front-seat passenger was also getting scalded. In my case, I sustained a 1st to 2nd degree burn on my right small (pinky) toe, which was blistered. It was fortunate that I was able to get off at the monmouth service area at milepost 100 of the garden state parkway in wall, NJ. My view is that this is a serious safety issue caused by design oversight, not merely a maintenance issue on a old car. For example, if a heater core breaks and does not heat, that is a maintenance problem. However, if it breaks and an unexpected driver gets hurt, and compounded, loses control of the vehicle, and moreover, has to put his foot back onto the accelerator pedal to control the car in a hot-liquid stream, this is an unacceptable safety condition due to failure to safely contain hot liquids. It was May. 30, 2013 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The car involved is a 2004 Land Rover Range Rover. The VIN of this vehicle was SALME11444_. Bought this vehicle for wife brand new for $80,000. First 38,000 miles best car ever owned. Then the landslide began. First bad vibration front end we pay $1,300 for wheel bearings. The transmission cooler rusted out. Our fault salty roads $1,100. 00 next the radiator goes $1,800 on us. By now 72,000 miles on it. Keep in mind my wife only uses to goto grocery store and pick kids up from school. God forbid we ever took it off road or thru the plains of africa. Now the biggy starts engine surging for no reason, vibration in steering wheel. Yes tires are new and balanced. Then the notorious transmission failsafe. Limpmode. Safety mode. How about sucker mode. Take it to dealer and they say need new transmission. I freak and second mechanic there looks at it and said its the transfer case motor $3,100. Oh yea that would be on us as well. So I say I'll tell you what put it in writing, that for sure this is the problem and if fixed all my transmission problems go away and if they don't its on you guys until its fixed. Yes you know what they said. I mean what happened to honesty and integrity. Love your neighbor as yourself. Stand by your work. Look I knew going into this car it was high maintenance but it does not even have 100,000 miles on it. Never fixed. Somedays it acts up all day other times once or twice it limps very sporadic. Pretty much a weatherby car. Whether or not it will act up or not. Ashamed to sell it and give someone else the problems. Tried telling people about problems and they said they would give me $7,000 carmax would not touch it actually refused to appraises it even though it was the cleanest they have seen. Issue the auction had a lemon flag on all the rangerovers with 70,000 miles or more. Nice!. This issue happened on 04/12/2010.

The vehicle involved is a 2003 Land Rover Freelander. 1) driving on the highway at 60mph, my engine suddenly shut off and I lost all power except brakes. I was able to pull over to and allow my car to rest, and later drove my car to the Land Rover dealership where I was told something along the lines of "the coolant gasket was cracked/broke" and had caused the engine to overheat. 2) I was having my car fixed for random failure of window motor and sunroof, I was told that the the carrier bearings/support bearings that the driveshaft goes through are bad, yet this repair is covered. The problem is that the place where the shaft comes apart is rusted and corroded which is a $3200 dollar repair. The warrantied part (driveshaft) is $429, and the corroded piece + labor was $3160. 3) while getting a smog check in California, I had error codes indicating "engine misfire" and "fuel injection error" and my car did not pass, even though there was no service/check engine light, the car drove "fine" with fine meaning a grinding noise of my drivetrain and knock when going from 2nd to 3rd gear. Land rover said that inside the upper intake manifold chamber, the actuator flap is stuck -a defect known to Land Rover but not covered since my car was out of warranty. This repair was $2000
4) while driving on the highway, suddenly check engine light came on at 65k miles, and all gauges shut down. Rpm, fuel, mph, and temperature all fell to read 0, empty, 130+, and 0 degrees respectfully. I emergently pulled to side of the highway fearing the engine had overheated but everything was "fine. " I then turned the car back on after 30 minutes and saw all gauges again functional except speed. Please look at the internet, this has happened to hundreds of people and this car is unsafe. It needs to be recalled! I was lucky that no one died or was injured in any of these 4 incidents. I never feel safe driving on highways anymore. It was Sunday, July 1, 2007 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The car is a 2007 Lexus Ls460l. The VIN of the problem Ls460 is JTHGL46F27_. This model hesitates in changing (hunting) gears on hard accelerations. Three times I have been in near accidents on merging into freeways, changing lanes from a straight path or from corner turns. The car responds very slow on hard acceleration. The web is full of similar incidents with this model car. I suspect it has something to do with Lexus' eight speed transmission and how their software is integrated with the powertrain. Lexus had a "fix" for this problem but did not quite fix it completely and they insist the car is working as designed. The failure date was Nov. 8, 2007.. Read more...

The vehicle was a 2008 Mazda Cx-7. As I was driving my Mazda ( with a turbo engine) along the highway it began to decelerate on its own and making a loud knocking/grinding noise. It stopped on the road going up a hill with no turnouts. So it appears that the turbo blew up. It will start, but I cannot go anywhere. I have also had to replace gaskets on my oil filter housing unit, as the stock gaskets were faulty and causing a severe oil leak. Also, my emissions regulation ( egr) valve is bad and therefore will not pass smog. Each of these issues I am seeing more and more complaints about from other owners of the same vehicle. Mazda has made a horribly defective car and refuses to do anything about it except to claim owner negligence. I bought my car with 40k miles on it and it has been falling apart from the start. There is absolutely no excuse and this is not owner negligence, it is Mazda negligence and refusal to make anything right on their completely defective vehicles. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) problem happened on 05/07/14.

The car involved was a 2007 Mazda Mazda3. I was notified by the Mazda dealership that an integral hydraulic engine mount was cracking and needed replacement. I was just past my car's warranty so I drove on it since they said it was safe. On November 8th 2013 during a service I was told the integral mount was about to break and needed immediate replacement. They said if the mount had broken while driving it could cause an accident, not to mention destroy the motor. I had them replace it but had to pay out of pocket since it was past warranty and not a recall. I researched online and found numerous complaints from other owners of the same series car and within adjacent years of the same motor mount cracking and needing replacement under 50,000 miles. Some complained about having to replace the replacement later after putting some more mileage on it. This is an obviously inherently defective part that should be recalled. Please look into this and force Mazda to recall this defect as it is a danger to public safety if one were to break while driving. Thank you so much for your time and service. It was April 19, 2012 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The car is a 2006 Mercedes Benz C230. Zero issues with this car until now. This week, June 2013, the car has 78,000 miles on it. I pulled up to a stoplight off the freeway, and the car started sputtering like never before. The check engine light came on - for the first time ever. The car stalled and engine died. It restarted, but when I pressed the gas there was no power, traffic was coming up the off ramp fast, I had to flash my brakes to get them to notice something was wrong but it was a close call. The car sputtered into the middle of a busy freeway overpass intersection with my family on board and eager traffic behind me. It was a very scary moment because the car went from completely reliable and trustworthy to complete loss of power and instability. I sputtered back home, creating the same dangerous conditions at every intersection. I took the car to a Mercedes Benz shop the next morning. After a lot of testing it was determined that the intake manifold needed to be pulled to look deeper into the engine. Hours later they found that the problem was caused by a defective plastic bushing of the intake manifold which broke and was sucked into cylinder #4 and #3. This caused the valves to bend and compromised the integrity of the cylinders and valves, according to the mercedes qualified technician. There is extensive damage to the valves, and they don¿t know what all they¿re going to find once they pull the headers off. The cost to repair the car is $4,400, but it may even be higher. The cylinders have to be sent to a machine shop to see if they have any other issues as a result. Who knows what they'll find. The mechanics stated that Mercedes Benz is aware of this problem, that those moving plastic parts in the intake manifold are known to crack and cause problems and should never have been made out of plastic, but I don¿t see recalls on this obvious engineering & manufacturing defect. It was Tuesday, June 18, 2013 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The car is a 1995 Mercedes Benz Sl500. The VIN of this vehicle was WDBFA67E7S_. This vehicle has a bio-degradable engine wiring harness. These harnesses are deteriorating. My vehicle suddenly lost all power, no power steering, no nothing on a freeway and I was lucky that I was not killed. Mercedes and the dealerships both know that vehicles with this type harness are death traps. I wonder how many people have already been killed, but wiring harness was never investigated as cause of accident. Why are you not taking action against mercedes? every vehicle still on the road should be recalled immediately if it has a bio-degradable wiring harness. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred May. 20, 2013.

The vehicle involved was a 2002 Mercury Cougar. The car gets a stalling sensation when at a red light, or a complete standstill. It feels like its stuttering and unable to keep power. Changed egr valve, 2 idle control changes, along with a transmission flush was done. Nothing seems to be fixing the issue. The car acts up and stalls in cold temperatures. Stalled at a red light twice. Has been taken to different car shops on numerous occasions. No engine light comes on. It was Tuesday, December 3, 2013 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The vehicle involved is a 2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid. The VIN of this Mariner Hybrid is 4M2CU29H68_. Stalling, total loss of power on freeway, or making a city turn, or accelerating from a stop sign or light, or going up even a slight incline, such as a driveway to a house. Only in the summer. Do not dare use air conditioning, which makes it occur quicker and much more often. 95 degrees outside, 113 degrees in car - cannot and do not use air conditioner, but still happens on trip over 15 minutes long. Totally unsafe. Like other contributors, I would like to know why there has been no recall. Just today, July 10, 2013, 18-wheeler behind me (close) on 45 mph city street, and I stalled. I stuck my left hand out of my window in a "please stop" gesture, and driver did stop, but I was terrified. Must come to full stop, put car in park to re-start it. But same thing will happen at next light or sign or change of speed, whether in 5 minutes or 30 seconds, city street or freeway. At this point, I would say this has happened approximately 250 times. Yes, that is not a typo. No question Ford knows about this. This issue happened on Tuesday, Jul. 21, 2009.

The car involved was a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer evo. The VIN of this vehicle was JA3AW86VX8_. Acd pump went out on my car. No real reason other than the lie of it being cold. . . . 20 degrees isn't to cold to me. Either way, without the acd pump the cars awd doesn't work to standard. What awd car isn't made for cold. Ridiculous. Happens to alot of evos. Needs recognized and recalled. Also my timing chain went at 36k. No timing chain should go out that early no matter what. They told me its because I didn't change the oil till they dropped the oil pan and saw that they were wrong. The chain isn't meant to handle the torque of the car. That's a manufacture mess up. Another one that should be a recall with the amount of people that have/had the issue. And one more, the p. O. S. Fuel relay that dies on you and could possibly blow your motor. The fuel pump and timing chain have both been updated yet not recalled. Why? doesn't make sense that they notice the problem, make a new part for the problem, but don't fix it under their mistake. This issue happened on 12/16/2013.

Crash was involved with the Mitsubishi Diamante. The reporting person owns a 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante. The contact stated that while driving at 75 mph, the contact attempted to brake but the brakes failed to respond without any warnings. The vehicle crashed into a passenger van. The vehicle was destroyed. The contact mentioned that two months prior to the failure the check engine light had illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnosis and was informed that the vehicle misfires, needed spark plugs, a fuel pump, a fuel injector, an egr valve, and the engine surged erratically. The failure and current mileage was 140,000. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) problem happened on Thu., Jul. 26, 2012.

The car involved was a 2005 Nissan Altima. The VIN of this vehicle was 1N4BL11E35_. This recall number, #03v084 describes my situation precisely. My vehicle currently has 97,000 miles on the odometer and I have been experiencing (over the last course of a year) severe oil consumption. Soon after I changed my oil in may of 2013, I began to notice unusual engine noise. I took my vehicle to a mechanic and he discovered that my motor was only running on a quart and a half of oil. The mechanic replenished my oil to its normal level and since then, the motor consumes oil at an abnormally rapid rate. According to the nhtsaâ??s recall #03v084, the catalytic converter disintegrates and the particles of the converter are drawn back into the motor, which causes scaring on the cylinder walls. This problem is the only logical explanation for my vehicle's rapid oil consumption. Itâ??s my intention to approach Nissan of north America about this issue. I would greatly appreciate your support. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred 12/10/12.

The car involved is a 2007 Nissan Xterra. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5N1AN08WX7_. Transmission downshifted on its own at 45 on a mild downgrade. Did it again later changing from one four lane highway to another, this time around 45-50 mph. Took the truck to local Nissan dealer for diagnosis as I took out an extended warranty with olympicare. The service adjuster was aware that '05-'09, even '10 models have a defect that allows radiator fluid to mix with transmission fluid, creating degradation of transmission and cooling system. After-market warranty is trying to dis-allow claim, citing Nissan's knowledge of this design flaw. This issue happened on Monday, July 1, 2013.

The car involved was a 2008 SAAB 9-3. VIN of the vehicle was YS3FB49Y98_. My car was exhibiting a hard start and misfires from 90,000 and up. It was more present in cold weather. It finally failed to turn over in -15 degree weather (-40 wind chill), had I been in a remote area there would have been a very real danger of hypothermia and frostbite. After some online investigation I found that numerous people are experiencing the same problem with any SAAB 9-3 2. 0t (b207 engine) over 75,000 miles. The problem is related to bad intake valves that become razor sharp and cannot hold compression especially in colder climates. This problem occurred on 01/07/14.

The car is a 2005 SAAB 9-2x. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is JF4GG22605_. This car, while a SAAB by name, is made by Subaru and is mechanically identical to a 2005 impreza wrx. Subaru recalled 2002- 2003 wrxs for a cold weather fuel leak. The recall number is 01-170-09. This car being two model years newer is not covered however it suffers from the exact same issue. During very cold temperatures like the ones we are experiencing now, (below 20 degrees f) raw fuel leaks from a hose in the engine compartment. This smell floods the cabin and is so bad, windows need to be rolled down. I have contacted Subaru for assistance but have yet to receive help. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred Monday, January 6, 2014.

The vehicle involved is a 2003 Saturn Ion. When I bought my car it wouldn't start, the dealer said it was because it sat for a long time. This problemhas been constantly been an issue since in extreme weather. I was told during one shop inspection it was electrical and they have seen a lot of this but don't know what causes it. With this case it has shut my radio on and off and a big issue that I have is when I am stopped with my foot on my brake the engine will revve up and jerk forward. This happens in the city when I'm driving at slower speeds. I've had to run off the road to avoid hitting people, the only thing that saves me from hitting anyone at lights or signs is my safety gap between me and a front car. I've been late for work, ruined vacations, been stranded with an infant in 100 degree weather, and wasted a lot of money trying to find the problems. I bought it new and have heard every excuse for the problems. . . You guys have finally stepped in on one of the problems we have been having now gm needs to answer the rest. I'm not the only one with these problems. If you do a search online you can pull up 100s of issues exactly the same. I have all my receipts when I took it onto Saturn dealers. Now I have doors that don't seal but I'm sure this is because it's old or other excuses. I had to buy another car because my kids aren't safe in it. I can't even have a clean conscious trading it in so I still am stuck with it. I have complained about this issue before but no one listens. It was October 18, 2003 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Saturn Ion. While traveling between 70-75mph on I-35 southbound between 2nd st. Merge and 15th street exit in edmond ok, we went to change lanes (middle lane to right lane) and there was a sudden boom, the car lost control, began to spin out of control (numerous slides and 2-360 deg turns and being flung in a backwards motion). As we attempted to get to the side of the road, our car began to spin out of control - we spun into a 360 degree turn, car caught fire as the oil was dumped from my car and sprayed all along the underneath of my car and tires, we slid sideways towards concrete barrier seperating n-s bound traffic, went into a second 360 degree turn, slid sideways - as we started heading once again forward towards oncoming traffic the vehicle suddenly started going backwards (even though car was in drive). . . We finally stopped facing oncoming traffic in sideways motion. Tow/mechanic inspected the car and found 3-4inch hole in the engin block - diagnosis - that push pin broke without warning and blew the hole. No warning was given of any kind of engine malfunction issue - no warning lights, nothing. We could of / should of been killed (per the eye witnesses who stopped to help us), our only saving grace was the oil which sprayed the road and our tires keeping us upright and not rolling. This needs to be investigated, recalled and fixed before someone is not as lucky as us. This issue happened on Feb. 15, 2014.

The vehicle involved was a 2002 Subaru wrx. Working night shifts, started my car to let warm up, temperature was 43 degrees fahrenheit at the time. After start up I could smell raw fuel out side the car as well as inside the car through the vents. Also gas milage has gone down by drastically, normally get 300-330 miles a tank and currently getting barley 200. Noticed car starting to smoke a little as well from under the hood, no fire but not going to keep driving the car. It was Sunday, April 6, 2014 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred.

The car is a 2004 Subaru Forester. The VIN of this vehicle was JF1SG69604_. In cold weather (below 20 degrees or so) the fuel lines in the engine compartment come loose and leak raw gasoline onto the hot engine. Obviously there is a good chance of an engine fire with possible loss of life. This has been reported in several forums, there is a TSB out on this for the wrx (same engine, same part numbers), and most dealers (in cold states) know of this problem. The failure date was January 7, 2014.

The vehicle involved is a 2008 Suzuki Xl7. The contact stated that while driving or if the engine was idle the vehicle would shake and make a loud ticking noise. The failure caused the check oil light and the check engine light to illuminate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times for the repairs and the vehicle continued o have the same problem. The dealer continued to repair different parts of the vehicle but not the correct part to stop the failure. The manufacturer was contacted and stated that the oil filter that was being used to change the oil disintegrated, broke up in big pieces and became stuck in the engine. The repair cost will be $1600 in order to take the vehicle apart to determine the correct way to repair the vehicle. There were no recalls or warranties related to the failure. The failure mileage was 47,000. It was Tue., Mar. 22, 2011 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The car involved was a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. The VIN of this Jetta is 3VWRL71K99_. Fuel system was flushed and replaced. After that the top of the engine was leaking oil. I took it back to vw in clarksville TN. They said they fixed it. It is still leaking oil just not as bad. Then the car was smoking and burning/leaking oil from the turbo. Vw did not want to fix this under warranty. Even though I had taken this car in several times before for a check engine light that kept bringing up the egr. The failure date was Nov. 13, 2013.

The car involved is a 2013 Volkswagen Passat. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1VWBN7A32D_. I bought a 2013 Passat se may 16, 2013, it currently has 28,000 miles on it and I take very good care of it. 2 weeks ago I just started my trip to work (75 miles one way / 95% highway) when the glow plug indicator came on and I immediately lost most power. It was about 7 degrees f, I was able to limp it to a dealer, who, after contacting vw technician support determined my turbo was shot and needed to be replaced. The support tech said that they have seen this only a couple of times and it was the first incident seen at my dealership, he said the replacement was a larger turbo, pump, pipe, filters and everything. It took a week and a half to do the job most of the time was waiting for parts. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) problem happened on 01/24/2014.

The car is a 2004 Volvo V70. I was driving alone in napa, CA at night on Tuesday, December 30th. I signaled to make a right hand turn from 30mph (so I was braking at the beginning of the turn and during the turn). About half way through the turn, I lost all power, power steering, brakes, etc. All of the dashboard lights went on - car was dead. I was trying to brake and steer to miss colliding with a parked car - to no avail. The car came to a stop about 1 foot from the a parked car in the opposite lane from where I was supposed to be. Fortunately, there was neither a waiting motorist nor a pedestrian walking at the intersection, as I most certainly would have hit them. While in the wrong lane, facing the wrong direction (by about 30 degrees) I managed to start the car immediately, but not without an oncoming motorist having to go around me. The same thing happened twice in October of this year - I brought it to my local Volvo dealer/service shop where they found "nothing" wrong with it. I did my own online research, finding similar issues and a recall citing problems with the fuel pressure sensor. My dealer replaced that part- and it has been running without incident until this Tuesday. Worth mentioning: in each incident, I was braking from no more than 30 mph. I had at least 3/4 tank of gas (the first time it occurred I was leaving a gas station!). The failure date was December 30, 2008.

The car involved was a 2004 Volvo V70. Approximately two months ago, my car began shuddering and bucking in a random fashion, and getting no power to the accelerator. I contacted my mechanic, and since it couldn't be duplicated and at that time there was no "check engine" light on, there was nothing that he could check. This continued with varying degrees of intensity until last evening(12/15/09) at approximately 6:00 pm. As I was merging onto the highway, the car began shuddering intensely. I down shifted and it continued. Without warning(and while having fully merged and reaching the highway speed of 65 mph), the car died. I was able to pull to the shoulder without incident. The check engine light came on and remained on when I restarted the engine. It again died within a few feet. After a third attempt, I was able to restart the car and exit the highway and return home. In researching the possible cause, I came across the description of the following NHTSA recall on certain '03-'04 models(07v226000). My dealership informed me on the following day that the issue with the car was indeed the fuel pressure sensor, and that my car was not part of the recall. I know from other V70r owners that they too have had the same issue, and that Volvo USA is aware of the problem. I would like for an investigation into the recall be expanded to more of the vins that were produced in '03-'04. Had I not been able to pull over to the shoulder immediately(I was in the right hand lane), I could have been in a serious accident. The highway in question is a 3 lane highway that was quite busy and it was fully dark at the time that the engine failed. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred Dec. 15, 2009.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2010 Audi A4. I bought car used from an Audi dealer, and months later the car rattled and the whole car was shaking when I turned it on in the morning. I turned it off and on again, this stopped the problem. I thought it was probably the weather of around 53 degrees f. Months later it did it again two more times but this time the weather was not cold and I drove an hour earlier. In January of this year, I drove 40 miles and when pulling into my driveway the car turned off on its own. I could not possibly turned it off due to both of my hands were on the steering wheel as I was turning into my driveway. Thanks god I was driving slow because my kids were outside. I checked the key and it was still pushed down. My husband that was also outside noticed what happened, he told me to take the car to the dealer. I had already taken this vehicle for making noise when turning. I took the car to the dealer for the car turning off. Once the dealer was done troubleshooting they say that there's nothing wrong with the car. They could not duplicate the problem. I still have this problem of the engine sometimes shaking the whole car when turning on. And as for my steering I still have the problem, I paid for new tires, alignment, and for tire balance. I really don't have time to keep taking the car to the dealer for them to say that they could not duplicate the problem. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred Monday, July 22, 2013.

The car is a 2010 Audi Q5. The VIN of this Q5 is WA1LKAFP0A_. Vehicle was sitting overnight in sub freezing temperatures (approx 30 degrees f). Started the vehicle and drove the vehicle for approximately 15 minutes when all of a sudden the blower motor was no longer blowing hot air into the interior of the car, and soon the low coolant light flashed. I pulled over quickly, opened the hood and saw that there was coolant spread through out the engine bay due to the water pump failing. I was no longer able to drive the vehicle. This seems to be a common issue with this particular engine in this vehicle. Audi seems to be aware of the issue, and is replacing some water pump's prior to them failing, and not replacing others. I contacted 2 separate Audi service centers in an attempt to have my water pump replaced as I was about to travel to canada with the car for a vacation and did not want to be stranded. Both times I was told there was no issue. Obviously there is. Such a high rate of failure for such an important engine component cannot be tolerated, especially when failures are occurring on engines with such low mileage. A recall should be issued to correct this issue. Fortunately the failure occurred in a large city where I had access to an Audi service center. If it occurred while I was in transit to my destination I may have been in a remote location where I could not easily receive help in a timely manner, putting my life in risk, especially during the winter season. This issue happened on Sun., Nov. 14, 2010.. Read more...

The vehicle involved was a 2010 BMW 335. The VIN of the problem 335 is WBAPN7C50A_. Due to premature build up of excessive soot and carbon in the egr, intake manifold, and intake valves of diesel engines, it was cause engine vibrations and check engine light to illuminate. Without costly repairs requiring egr cleaning/replacing, intake manifold cleaning/replacing, and cylinder head cleaning/ replacing, the car will not pass mandatory emissions testing. BMW needs to extend their warranty to address this issue. The failure date was 12/20/2013.

The vehicle is a 2006 BMW 5 Series. I bought a used BMW from long island auto find. Before picking it up I told nick certain things needed to be done there was a drafty sound coming from the moon roof the center rims were corroded, bolts were missing from the valve cover. I was called three days in a row by nick who claimed everything was done and the car was ready to be picked up. When I got the re not only was the battery dead, nothing on my list was done! I have since had the car 5 month and I has been in the shop 5 weeks so far. Passenger side air bag malfunctioned and needed to be replaced. There was an oil leak that caused my eyes to water and leaves a funny taste in my mouth. This took three different attempts to fix. The car moves from side to side at 65 mph. The car just died while taking my wife to work. I brought it to the shop it did it on the mechanic but he could not determine the cause. He said it was safe to take to florida which is the reason I bought it. It stalled in florida while entering an intersection then again in delaware at 3:30 in the morning and 13 degrees! and again on the bqe as three lanes of traffic merged into one. I have 2 friends with the same car they were charged $1300 to fix the "air bag malfunction"everyone should be reimbursed. I am told the gaskets become brittle and leak. All of these issue's should be part of a recall. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) problem happened on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.

The vehicle was a 2001 Buick Park Avenue. The VIN of this vehicle was 1G4CW54K81_. While attempting to start the car after the ingnition was cranked for less than one second there was an explosion from under the hood resulting in fire. The fire was put out within a minute due to access of a nearby fire extinguisher. Upon examination of the engine compartment the entire intake manifold had exploded off of the engine and there was fire damage to wiring and hoses.

Vehicle is a 2006 Buick Lucerne cx with 40,000 miles. About 2 months ago it started to go dead without any warning. The first occurrence was Jan 15, 2014 with my wife driving. The next shutdown on Mar 4, 2014, occurred in rush hour traffic. There was an audible signal accompanied by a “service traction control” warning, followed immediately by a throttle control warning and complete engine shutdown. I was able to coast across 2 traffic lanes into a parking area with great difficulty while steering and braking without power assist. Tried to restart the engine but got “throttle disabled” message. After 2-4 minutes was able to restart with no warning light illuminated. The last shutdown was on March 10, 2014, on the interstate at 70 mph. I had disabled traction control earlier in hopes of avoiding another unexpected shutdown. After coasting off the interstate, I was able to restart normally after a few minutes. No warning lights appeared after the restart. Two gm dealers checked the car on Mar 11, 2014. The first was a Chevrolet dealer, and after some diagnostic work they sent me to a Buick dealer down the street. Both dealers said there were no error messages and they could not repair. They said when it happens again to bring it back in immediately for diagnosis. The 3 shutdowns have been on cold mornings, temps less than 40 degrees. I believe in all three cases the warning “watch for icy conditions” has appeared prior to failure. This is an extremely dangerous failure mode that leaves no tracks if there is an accident! my wife now refuses to drive the car, and I am very apprehensive about it. It was Wednesday, January 15, 2014 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2003 Cadillac Cts. TSB 05-06-01-007a this has happened to my cadi on at least three occasions. First time, Cadillac dealer charged to replace thermostat. Didn't work. Next time, repair shop replaced oil gasket. Didn't work. This time I found the below description on line and will ask my repair shop to fix. If this is recurring to Cts owners, there really should be a recall. It is also a fire hazard. Irritating. My research found the below and it is right on target. . . . . It rarely happens because it is rarely below 10 degrees in my neck of the woods. . . . The car involved was a 2003 Cadillac Cts. Started vehicle in approximately 7 degree weather. After starting vehicle and running for approximately 15 minutes notice severe power loss. Within next couple of minutes black smoke with extreme burning smell flooded vehicle interior compartment also smoke starts to come from under hood of vehicle. Pulled into safe location found huge oil leak on left side of engine around valve cover. Could have possibly started a fire due to highly combustible oil being blown on engine but luckily did not catch on fire. Check on-line found TSB 05-06-01-007a stating gm knows this is a problem. "when operating in extremely cold weatherconditions, some 2003-2004 vehicles with 3. 2l v6 engine may leak engine oil from the cam/valve seals, especially from the left side just below the oil fill hole in the cam/valve cover. " this is quite a bit more than a leak since approximately a quart of oil was blown on the engine in only a couple minutes. If the engine would have been hotter there could easily have been a fire. Since this is a know issue with a known cause shouldn't this be taken care of by gm or at least the safety of the drivers and passengers should be considered. It could have been much worse if the vehicle would have caught fire. This gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue occurred Jan. 23, 2014.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2012 Cadillac Srx. The Srx 3. 6 liter detonates continuously when 87 or 89 octane is used and the outside air temp. Is 70 degrees or above. The current program in the 2012, 2013 and current Srx crossovers can not retard the timing enough when the knock sensors sense the pinging. Gm has replaced engines to resolve this issue but has found that it is a software issue and is working on writing a new program for all Srx crossovers, they claim a software update in a year. Driving a continuously detonating engine will permanently damage the engine and can cause an unsafe vehicle to the consumer. It was Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.

The car involved was a 2011 Jaguar Xj sedan. 2011 Xj is exhibiting problems similar to those contained in NHTSA campaign id number: 10v332000 for the xk and xf. Specifically, vehicle engine will stutter as if about to stall, which is most noticeable within the first 30 minutes after start up, but persists in varying degrees at all times, especially when idling. Problem is progressively worsening. Problem reported to dealer who had indicated a software update in the future should resolve the issue, but no indication given on when that will happen. Problem sounds similar to NHTSA campaign id number: 10v332000, which notes a crash could occur. Accordingly, this should be investigated to confirm if the 2011 Xj should be included in this recall. It was 08/15/2010 when this gas recirculation valve (egr valve) issue happened.
