car   Speedometer/odometer Failure problem of Chevrolet Trailblazer

The car was a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The VIN of the problem Trailblazer is NOT WORTH _. This is an intermittent problem with this vehicle. I am 3rd owner. 2nd owner had same problem. The speedometer fails to register correct speed. I am currently using a automotive scan tool to verify actual speed. The most interesting thing about this is it does not occur all of the time. Just when I am getting 19. 5 mph or better with a lot of traffic. 1 week ago I had 20 vehicles in back of me. Turns out my speedometer was 20 miles an hour off. I was going 35 in a 55 mph zone. Good thing I had my scan tool with me. This is a problem gm has recalled other vehicles for. My question is why the NHTSA is allowing this. These are the same clusters that were recalled for the silverado. Why even have an agency as important as this one if it does not do anything about all of these complaints. There are many speedometer complaints. Gm says replace the cluster . It still works some of the time so what is the real issue. It should have completely failed by now if it were electrical or mechanical. The owner should not have to pay for this. Why discriminate against tailblazer owners. Not even an investigation. This speedometer/odometer failure issue occurred Wed., Mar. 19, 2014.

On 4/4/2004 my vehicle speedometer sensor failed causing my vehicle to be place in a safety mode of no more than 25 miles an hour. . (felt like the transmission dropped). Then a year later around the same time, my power steering pump failed and almost causing me an accident. I have also repaired the cradle bushing 3 times since owning this vehicle and now I have to replace them again. I also just recently (Dec. Of 2011) had all the struts complete assembly replaced with both lower control arms with ball joints. Replaced both upper outer tie rods, both lateral links. I am constantly replacing my tires before there warranty time and replacing front-end brake pads. Also my seat belts are defective and not working properly. The rear defroster/antenna module started smoking and melted causing my defroster not to work anymore. I have been having nothing but problem with this vehicle since day one, with no help or concern from Chrysler. The bumper to bumper warranty I had purchased for the vehicle did not cover any of these failed parts. I also tried getting the recall parts replaced and was told by several dealerships that my car was not part of the recall because I have a sunroof Lhs. I am constantly having to replace front-end suspension parts that keep failing on this vehicle. This vehicle only had 1 owner before me. I have receipts for all updated maintenance and repairs for this vehicle. Chrysler has denied me of any failed parts, warranty parts and recalls for the vehicle. This is just the beginning of the issues with this vehicle, there are other issues as well but will not be able to fit it on this form. This issue happened on Monday, Apr. 4, 2005.

car   Speedometer/odometer Failure problem of Ford F-150

The car involved is a 2011 Ford F-150. The subject pick up truck was southbound on i405 between orange Ave and cherry Ave in long beach California. The vehicle was in the fast lane or the lane adjacent to the fast lane. Speed at the time of the incident was approximately 65 mph and the cruise control was engaged. Traffic was moderate with all lanes moving at freeway speed. Without warning, and simultaneously with the sound of a skidding tire, the vehicle pulled violently and abruptly to the right, out of control, and crossed all traffic lanes of the freeway and the shoulder of the freeway. Just prior to departing the roadway, enough control was regained to avoid hitting a freeway directional sign in the landscape median. The truck entered the landscape median and came to rest facing south, parallel to the freeway. Approximately 10 minutes passed before the California highway patrol responded to the accident site. The officer said he was responding to an accident that was reported. The vehicle was towed to a local Ford dealer for investigation. Five to ten minutes prior to the loss of control, the driver noticed a fluctuation in the speedometer from approximately 65 mph to 50 mph with no change in vehicle speed, engine rpm or performance. Several weeks prior to the accident, the driver experienced an event at moderate speed which was described as feeling though the vehicle was hit from behind at slow speed although there was no one behind the truck. Simultaneously, the speedometer and tachometer both failed to 0 and the dashboard display went blank. Shortly thereafter, a "wrench" icon appeared momentarily on the display. The driver continued driving to a gas station and refueled. When the engine was started after refueling, all instruments appeared normal with no icons present. No icons re-appeared at any time up to and including the date of the accident. The failure date was 03/25/2014.
