car   Radiator Hose problem of Chrysler Pacifica

The VIN of this vehicle is 2C8GF68404_. The engine and transmission mounts on all Chrysler Pacifica models are putting the public at risk. . . The failure rate for these vehicle components is astronomical and repetitive after repairs. The failure of the engine and transmission mounts can cause additional failures that also put the public at risk. . . This includes: --ground wire fatigue and failure causing a multitude of unexpected electrical problems and vehicle shut down --damage to vehicle wiring harness to the powertrain control module, again causing a myriad of unexpected electrical problems and vehicle shut down --cooling system failure. . . Engine movement causes upper radiator hose to disconnect compromising the cooling system and contributing to environmental contamination when the engine coolant is released. I know that this has been reported previously and it is appalling to realize that no action has been effected by this oversight arm. Chrysler needs to be held accountable for their poor design and quality standards and find an effective solution to this issue that has affected every Pacifica manufactured. I look forward to your response. . . It was 05/01/2009 when this radiator hose issue occurred.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Chrysler Town & Country

The vehicle is a 2009 Chrysler town and country. My 2009 Chrysler town and country 4 liter engine stopped dead 3/4 mile after leaving home in the morning. I was doing 15 mph at the time. Everything stopped working, I. E. , the power steering was unmovable and the power brakes were non-responsive. Because it happened in a curve, I ended up in the oncoming lane on a single lane road. Luckily there was no car in that lane. In addition, the heating and cooling system and the radio also stopped. The dashboard went dark. There was total silence. After about 45 seconds I restarted the car with no problems. I drove the car to the nearest Chrysler dealer whose service advisor asked whether or not a check engine light came on after the event so that he could get the failure code. The light did not come on. The dealer's service advisor said that he could not fix the problem without the failure code. I have driven the minivan for the last 10 days with no problems. Now I am uncertain if and when this event will happen again and am concerned about my safety in the future. The failure date was Saturday, Jan. 7, 2012.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Dodge Durango

The car was a 2013 Dodge Durango. Had horrible smell coming from cooling system. Took in numerous times to dealership to try and fix. Finally stumped the dealership asked star at Chrysler headquarters. They immediately knew the issue and gave mechanics steps to fix. Turns out the new "green friendly" engine coolant they are using on the new Durangos was never tested. The coolant was interacting with anything rubber it came into contact with and was breaking down the rubber. Star told them to replace every piece of rubber the coolant comes into contact with. It is now middle of August and the smell is still present and to date Chrysler has not issued a service bulletin or recall on the coolant or hoses. We have submitted paper work for the lemon law. It was Apr. 1, 2013 when this radiator hose issue happened.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Ford Freestyle

The car is a 2004 Ford Freestyle. Problems with engine since 2005 with jerking, sputtering, engine lockup. Transmission locks and jerks, aircondioner stopped cooling and won't hold freon. Electrical issues also. . . . . . Has a mind of its own! several trip to the Ford dealership, was told "could not diagnose, bring it back if it does it again, we can't find anything wrong with it". The issues are sporadic. Drives fine one minute, next thing you know you are stalled on busy hwy. Not enough space to list "expensive" problems. Extended warranty? that's a joke, waste of $. Scariest issue is when it locked up while driving. Lost complete control of steering, acceleration, etc. Was stranded in middle of road. Have disability, very scary & frustrating especially since my husband bought it only a year old so kids and I would have a "safe" vehicle. Did not take back to dealership since they'd probably say " can't diagnose". Purchased a rebuilt engine had small town mechanic put it in. Problems still going on. Since there are still so many problems with engine, transmission, electrical, and no air conditioning, I'm afraid to drive it more than 5 miles. It is a very expensive lawn ornament. Fyi, my husband had just had to replace the engine in his Ford vehicle a month before mine went out, had to sell his vacation time for 2 years in a row just to keep those Fords running for our family. . . He's a public safety officer. Ford sold be ashamed. (dates are approximate, paperwork packed up from a move. . . . Sorry:-) ). It was Monday, Jan. 3, 2005 when this radiator hose issue happened.

(year 2011 to 2013 all this happened lemon) the wheel bearings went on the vehicle. . . Had to have all three replaced. . . Both front . . . One drivers side back. It wasn't the tires because they were brand new. ( $2. 100 including labor) the mechanic stated that never should have happened. This seems to be an on going problem with sport tracs . . . I am to have the right rear passenger side done soon . . . No one has over $700. . . To put towards a vehicle in this day and age with the economy the way it is. This sport trac has been with so many issues to do with wheels, transmission (one month in the repair shop, reverse and drive gone on the tranny( $6897. 65), radiator (replaced 3x due to rupture of the, cooling and heating system $1017. ), hoses breaking ($200). . . No wonder they quit making them total pain in the keester and very hard on the pocket book. It is paid for and is mine that is the only reason I keep it. I cannot afford to get another vehicle. . . But I will never buy another Ford again. Their service says it all. . . It is horrible. Since purchasing this vehicle I have spent $10,903. 65 in repairs. The truck is very hard on tires. . . I don't squeel my tires but I travel 70 to and from daily for work. . Every year baby needs new rubber boots. $689. Not fair in all essence the vehicle is only 6 yrs old. I have had better and it certainly wasn't a Ford. You can share this with them if you like because they need to see that their service department did nothing for me and I took it to acute auto care for my transmission etc. It was Friday, March 18, 2011 when this radiator hose issue happened.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Honda Pilot

The vehicle was a 2005 Honda Pilot. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Honda Pilot is 5FNYF18415_. I was on a circular on-ramp to a highway. My vehicle started losing power upon acceleration so the engine revved but car slowed down. I made it off the ramp to the highway and was able to pull off to the shoulder. The car has an automatic transmission so I thought maybe it wasn't clicking into place properly but it was. I noticed a puddle of fluid. I had it towed to a mechanic who said that the transmission cooling line blew out & the radiator will have to be replaced along with the adapter because there are no threads left on the radiator to grab the connector. He said it was something that's not supposed to happen. It was a mechanical failure. I have read several posts on line on a number of web sites from owners with this same problem. Most people have also replaced their transmissions because the radiator and transmission fluids ruin both when mixed together. My car is still at the mechanics, so I don't know about the transmission yet, but the posts indicate that the car is never the same. I was lucky that I had enough juice to pull over to safety. Apparently there are no recalls from Honda in spite of the numerous complaints that I've seen. Repairs are expensive & this problem seems to occur mostly within the 100,000 mile range, give or take. If I get rid of the car before or after fixing it, it would only be a problem for the next consumer & that's not really fair. I feel that Honda should reimburse current owners for transmissions and radiator replacements on those cars that have had the problem and recall/repair the parts on the ones that haven't. I feel that this is an important issue because my car could have come to a complete stop on the highway and caused a serious & potentially fatal accident. Honda needs to take responsibility for this defect before someone gets hurt or killed. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter. This radiator hose problem happened on 10/20/2013.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Honda Civic

We bought the Honda Civic in Feb 2012. Drove about 1000 miles. One day I feel little hesitation in third gear. I open the hood to just check, and found the water all over the engine compartment and hood liner was wet and soggy. I was surprize and worryed thought cooling system busted or loose hose clamp. But after tharough checkup found that rain water seep thru between front hood lip and grill. I told my wife not to drive the car, it's not safe, because water can damage the electric component and may cause fire. So I dry the engine area as much as I could. Setup the appointment with Honda dealer. First of all the service suppervisor did not belive, and then she check couple of other cars same model and year,and found that all the cars are the same design nothing missing. She suggest to call the Honda manufacture. I asked for the work order, she said there is no problem so no work order need to fillup. I talk to sale person about all this; he said the same. I was very disappointed. I ask for the service manager; and show him the car and problem; he said the same to call manufacture. But atleast he agreed to write the work order. That consumer complaint this, and we could not find any problem. As per consumer the rain water get in to engine compartment and wet the hood liner and other electric equipment and plugs.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Land Rover Freelander

The Land Rover Freelander is not a safe car. I feel this car is very dangerous to the consumer with all the problems people are having with this car. I am having the same problems that I am seeing on the internet that my fellow Freelander owners are having sunroof problems, brakes, oil leaks, transmission problems at low mileage, heater core leak that cause windows to mist at 30,000-40,000 miles that is very dangerous for consumers and I feel the NHTSA needs to check into these many defects and have Land Rover pay these consumers there money back and save lives. I have had my sunroof fixed twice with less than 40,000 miles, I have had a oil leak with less than 40,000 miles, presently I am dealing with a heater core leak at 50. 400 just when my warranty is up and this is going to cost me 1,000 dollars and all Land Rover had to say was I am sorry. I expect a car like Land Rover to be more dependable than that, with low mileage and all of these problems. I feel this is to many problems for a car that Land Rover claims to be rugged, tough and dependable. I truly hope that NHTSA can help myself and my fellow consumers with the defects we are having with this car and provide consumer safety that we all need during these tough times. Thank you. This problem occurred on Friday, November 3, 2006.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Lexus RX350

The car is a 2007 Lexus Rx350. Driving home from work late at night my car started to make sounds it smelled like rubber burning. My display panel showed no trouble lights were on. I knew I had just had the oil changed the oil light was not on. I am a 61 year old woman on a dark back road with no lights or cars around me I was not stopping. After driving 10 miles finally I was a block from home now the oil light comes on. My husband checked the oil and saw that the oil stick was dry. I called where I had my oil changed and explained and they said to have the car towed to them. Once they checked it out he called and said my oil cooler hose blew apart he said they see this alot in 2007 Lexus RX 350 and I should call my dealer. I called the Lexus service dealer the service guy said it was under warranty. I asked if my motor was ruined will Lexus fix it he said yes Toyota would have to eat the cost. I had the car towed to Lexus I got a call from the Lexus service dept he said it was not under warranty. He said I would have to pay almost 600. 00 to have a new hose installed. I went off on him. My car has 75000. 00 miles I have owned cars with 115+ miles and never had a oil hose go bad. The scary thing is there is no warning when this hose blows. The dash board panel lights should indicate there is a problem service is needed something! for the hose to blow apart in just a second like it did the hose has a default. Toyota has known about this problem and refuses to do a recall at this time. We need to have a class action law suit. This is so dangerous why is Toyota not taking care of this problem they wait until deaths occur. This radiator hose problem happened on Saturday, Jun. 16, 2012.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Mitsubishi Galant

The car was a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. My car had an overheating problem last December 12/2007. Therefore I took it to a mechanic to get it fixed. They said they replaced the radiator, fan control, and upper and lower radiator hoses- (I have the receipt for that). A week later when I was driving, the car started to catch fire. The fire was coming from the front. The whole car up to the back seats were all damaged because of the fire, only the luggage was ok. So my insurance company conducted an investigation to see the cause of the fire and their report was that it was the mechanics fault. (I have the investigation report with me). However, the mechanic shop wanted to conduct their own investigation as well. So their conclusion was that this mitubishi Galant 2001 model license plate numbewas recalled for this particular problem. But I never got any letter from Mitsubishi up till today about this. So please let me know if this car was recalled for this particular problem or whether this was the mechanics fault. If you need any additional information please call me or email me. Make: Mitsubishi model: Galant year: 2001. This radiator hose issue occurred Dec. 3, 2007.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Mitsubishi Eclipse

The car is a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse spyder. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 4A3AE45G91_. When I first purchased this vehicle from the dealer 6/2001 I had to take it back 2 times due to the defect of the hose hooked to the radiator, they repaired it under warrany, and now it has occurred again which all Mitsubishi dealers tell me because it is not under warranty and not on the recall list there is nothing they can do. I just got done putting brand new sway bar links on the car, and paid 350. 00 to do this in which they told me should never occurred on this new of a car. I feel since I reported the problems with the noise from the first week I got the car all the way until recent when I fixed it, they overlooked it and ignored the problem which could have cost me and my son our lives. I feel Mitsubishi should cover these things since there is proof I took it in over 13 times for the same complaint noise under the car (sway bar links) and radiator fluid leaking all over the engine and burning. Please note this has been occuring since 7/2001 the month and year I have marked below are for the defective hoses on my radiator causing fluid to leak all over the engine and burn and this was verified on this date below by a professional shop. This has not caught fire yet but smoke comes from under the hood of the car all the time after it has been running. This radiator hose issue occurred 03/07/2005.

car   Radiator Hose problem of SAAB 95

The vehicle was a 2001 SAAB 9-5. My car has only 50,000 miles. No warning, no escalation, just sudden. Sid l. C. D. Display is missing dots and lines causing unreadable display. Checked several "SAAB" discussion forums and apperantly this is a very common problem which damages the value of a $40,000+ car. I am afraid to find out how much this is going to cost to repair after seeing how many 9-5 owners have posted "home remedy" repair methods for this. Upper radiator hose- third one in fifty thousand miles from myself and the previous owner whom I knew. They all burst in the same place. Pressure relief cap tested ok. There is no aftermarket manufacturer of this hose that I know of to fall back on for a possibly more reliable product. And also, I again after searching through discussion forums discovered I am not the only one with this problem. Hood badge. Enamel cracked and flacked off of the hood badge on this garage kept car. Luckily I hear (because I'm not the only one) that these are cheap. My car has lost value to no fault of mine and I am going to have to have these things repaired (although they should not need to be) to regain that lost value. It was 05/28/05 when this radiator hose issue happened.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Subaru Outback

The vehicle was a 2001 Subaru Outback. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 4S3BH67501_. I have gone through one head gasket on Jan 2003. The head gasket went out in Dec of 2003 and the whole engine had to be replaced. In January of 2004 I had the overhead camgaskets go out on the car as well as the the oxygen sensor. I have had more issues but it would be a small book. Subaru has been relativly unresponsive even after many phone calls and letters to my concerns. Every part was replaced however there seems to be a poroblem with my new engine since there is now an investigation within Subaru. They refuse to pay the dealership for the new engine replacement which raises the question of was this a new engine or what is wrong with the new engine. It was Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2004 when this radiator hose issue occurred.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Subaru Outback

The vehicle involved is a 1998 Subaru Outback. Driving a 1998 Subaru awd legacy Outback. On June 6, 2006 while on a short trip in vehicle, returned home to see smoke (not steam) coming from engine block. The vehicle had overheated, and had been suffering occasional loss of power while driving prior to this time (approx 1 week). Drove approx . 5 mi to dealer next day to get checked out along with 90,000 mile service (mileage on vehicle was 91,058). Dealer called to inform that he had found leaking head gaskets with leaks at the valve covers and hydrocarbons in the cooling system. Informed that head gasket would need to be replaced and the head resurfaced (potential replacement of block but this was not needed nor was a valve job) and that we should also replace water pump, timing belt, and engine shield as long as the engine is out. My research on the web indicates that this problem is epidemic, local mechanics I've spoken with say that this is a very common issue and that Subaru America will not step up to the plate. I called Subaru, with my complaint and while admitting no responsibility offered $500 credit toward repairs which eventually came to more than $3000. Replaced parts include head gasket, head resurfacing, seals, water pump, hoses, thermostat, timing belt and tensioner, separator plate. When I called again to ask them to step up on this issue they failed to offer additional help. As I understand it a blown head gasket can lead to a cracked engine block which could indeed lead to a very serious problem. A simple web search on this issue found dozens of similar complaints of this very serious and expensive problem. This problem occurred on Tuesday, June 6, 2006.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Volkswagen Passat

The car is a 2004 Volkswagen Passat. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was WVWPD63B74_. On 12/28/2007 the oil cooler on my 2004 Passat failed and allowed large quantities of oil to leak into the coolant. The oil cooler repair was covered under vw's powertrain warranty. Per the Passat owner's manual and per verbal confirmation from vw, when a part covered under warranty fails and causes damage to other parts, those other parts are covered under warranty as well. In this case the dealer, flow Volkswagen of greensboro, nc, replaced not only the oil cooler but also the coolant reservoir, and flushed the cooling system 3 times. During the service they telephoned me at work and gave me a quote of nearly $300 to replace the thermostat because they felt it could have been damaged by the fouled coolant. At that time I was not aware that the thermostat was covered under warranty, nor did I know that the dealer already had the thermostat completely out of the vehicle. The dealers service technician noted that the coolant was the consistency of mud. The $300 quote that the flow Volkswagen dealer gave me involved a double charge on the labor as well as violated vw's warranty policy that the thermostat should have been covered. The dealer was already going to charge vw for the removal of the thermostat and other cooling system components, yet they were calling to ask me to pay for the labor as well as for the warranty covered part itself (the thermostat) that was damaged by the oil cooler's leak. During the phone call when I was given the quote the flow Volkswagen service personnel told me that the thermostat might be okay since they were cleaning it. In August of 2008, the Passat's check engine light came on. According to flow Volkswagen this time, the thermostat needed to be replaced and the total charge would be $478. This radiator hose problem happened on Friday, December 28, 2007.

car   Radiator Hose problem of Volkswagen Passat

I purchased a 2003 Volkswagen Passat from flow motors of greensboro, nc. The vehicle was certified by Volkswagen with a two year 24,000 warrant. The engine blew when is was 260 miles over or outside the warranty. The cause of the engine blowing was due to oil pressure and the lack of oil pressure in the engine. My wife and three year old were driving back from washington, d. C. To greensboro and broke down in lynchburg, v. A. The service manager at terry's Volkswagen in lynchburg towed the vehicle in to their shop and looked at the engine. They reported that a cam bolt snapped in the engine which caused the oil pressure to cease and in return caused the engine to blow. They told me that a cam bolt should never snap and this was a product failure. Flow motors retrieved the vehicle and denied any responsibility for the product failure and recommended I put a new engine in the vehicle at the cost of 6,500. I replaced the engine and a couple of months later had to replace a cooling flange at 300. 00 and after that a vacuum hose at 300. 00. Before replacing the vacuum hose there was a leak in my back floorboard and had the vehicle in at flow motors on two occasion but they could not locate the leak but still charged me 50. 00 to look for the leak. I've had to cut the carpet out of the back floorboard because of mold. Volkswagen broke my hood support bar and also refused to cover the expenses to pay for that. When the vehicle's engine blew my wife called me immediately to tell me the engine light was on. I told her to pull over immediately and she did. When she came to a stop the engine cut off and would not start back up. The engine had just over 91,000 and can't accept having to replace the engine when all the maintenance was kept up. Terry Volkswagen says the cam bolt snapped and stated that should never happen on a vehicle with only 91,000. I have complained to Volkswagen, the bbb, and currently am speaking with an attorney. It was 06/12/2009 when this radiator hose issue happened.
