car   Windshield problem of Chrysler Pt Cruiser

The car involved is a 2009 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 3A8FY48989_. The windshield on this vehicle cracked for no apparent reason. The crack started at the bottom, just left of center. The crack ran up the windshield for about 3 inches, then turned 90 degrees to the right. Over the course of the next few weeks, the crack ran all the way to the right a-pillar. It bears mentioning that the crack started while the vehicle was in my driveway. The car hadn't even been started yet. I've seen many mentions on-line of Pt Cruiser's with problems identical to mine, and my neighbor's pt also has this same crack. When I took it to the Chrysler dealer, they denied any knowledge of an issue with pt windshields, and denied my repair request under warranty, even though the vehicle was still covered by Chrysler's 36/36 bumper-to-bumper warranty. When I called Chrysler customer care, they agreed, after a great deal of wrangling, to fix my windshield if I paid a $100. 00 deductable. I did, reluctantly, because here in texas, a vehicle will not pass a safety inspection with a cracked windshield. It's obvious that Chrysler has an ongoing safety issue with the Pt Cruiser windshields. It also seems obvious that Chrysler has their head buried in the sand. Chrysler needs to be forced to deal with the Pt Cruiser windshield issue in a proper manner, before it causes injury or worse. This windshield issue occurred Feb. 22, 2011.

car   Windshield problem of Ford Escape

The car is a 2010 Ford Escape. Right after the warranty went out the vehicle starting slamming from 1st into 2nd upon acceleration. The idle is very rough and quite loud, the engine makes a funny noise and I take extremely good care of my vehicle, getting all of the scheduled oil changes on time, replacing the air filter, etc. I also explained to them that the vehicle wasn't idling properly and that the engine used to be quiet. The windshield is extremely thin as well, a small pebble hit my windshield causing a 8 inch crack in a matter of minutes to where it was beyond getting it fixed. Then liftgate started giving me problems. When you press the button, it would make the sound, but sometimes open, then on may 17, 2013 it just quit working all together. On may 18, 2013, I took it to reynolds Ford for a scheduled oil change right before a trip to mexico and upon telling them about it, they wanted $250 just to look at it before parts and labor. Now, the rear blinker doesn't work and you can't replace it due to the fact that you can't get the liftgate to open in order to remove the rear taillight assembly. So, when you are trying to make a left turn, vehicles behind you don't know you are turning and almost hit you (safety hazard). You also can't change a flat tire since you can get to the jack, which is in the rear compartment accessed through the liftgate. This is a serious problem as there is no manual release for the hatch to get it open period, once the latch doesn't work, it just doesn't work. This issue happened on Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012.

car   Windshield problem of Ford Edge

The vehicle was a 2008 Ford Edge. On Saturday, November 16th. Between the hours of 5pm and 7pm, while driving, we were heard a "popping" noise from the front of the car. We also noticed the windshield cracking and thought the noise was from the window cracking. When we arrived home, the car was in the garage sitting and we heard the car "pop" again. The same thing happened Sunday while going to church and home. Monday morning on the 19th, my wife parked in the school parking lot to attend a school meeting and when she came out, the hood was up and the front was popped up. We took it to the local Ford dealer and they indicated that the strut tower failed. The mechanic indicated I would not be able to drive it because it was a safety risk. They were surprised that my wife was able to drive and glad that it did not totally fail. It was indicated that the metal on the frame of the strut tower fatigued and it caused the strut tower to pop up. I have pictures if anyone would like it. The vehicle mileage at the time of incident is an estimate. It may be a little less. This windshield issue occurred 11/16/2013.

car   Windshield problem of Acura TL

The vehicle involved is a 2004 Acura Tl. Parked the car at night in the garage as it has always been since I bought the car new. Car has always been pampered and has never spent time outside of a garage except for rare occasions visiting family out of town for the weekend. Even with that, the car maybe spends a total of 30 some odd days a year in time sitting in the sun. Went to take the car out to the store the next morning and noticed a large crack going from the windshield towards the passenger seat across the air bag. The next day 2 more cracks appeared, and the next day an additional 2 cracks. For a car that had been beyond well kept and pampered, not to mention a 'luxury' car, should not be in this state. I have friends with Acuras and hondas much older than mine that have spent their entire lives sitting outside in the texas heat and have not a single crack on the dashboard, yet mine which has lived a "sheltered" life has over 6 now. After much research on the web, I noticed I am not the only owner with this issue. What makes this more annoying is looking at pictures posted from other owners, the places where the cracks form and grow are almost nearly identical. This is completely unacceptable for this brand of vehicle and the fact that a recall or an offer form Acura to replace this dashboards has not been made. One or two people having the issue can be over looked. Hundreds of people having the same issue in the same locations is a defect. Acura should be held responsible for this. I bought this car because of their reputation. Now their reputation has no meaning to me. If I hadn't paid so much for the car to start with and the fact that replacing it would be ridiculous for a car that for the most part is still like new would be insane. This windshield issue occurred Tuesday, September 17, 2013.

car   Windshield problem of Honda FIT

The car is a 2011 Honda Fit. Passenger windshield exploded internally while driving down the interstate at 75mph the first time. Called Honda and they said there was no issue with it. I had the insurance company replace it at that time. Now, again this morning, the same window shattered again internally on the vehicle while it was sitting in our driveway--all windows are rolled up and --kaboom--it exploded. Something is seriously wrong with this. Any passenger could have been seriously injured- I am shocked that Honda has not recalled this for this model given they are supposed to be big on safety. The first time it was replaced was 11/21/2012 and again today 12 months and two weeks later--it happened again. This windshield issue occurred Mon., Jan. 6, 2014.

car   Windshield problem of Hyundai Sonata

The vehicle having this issue was a 2012 Hyundai Sonata. Driving on hwy I-385 - looking out the right side of the front windshield I thought I saw a dog run into the path of my car. It was not a dog. It was a distortion in my windshield that created wavy lines of the guardrails that I was driving by. I took my car to greer Hyundai, SC, to see what could be done with the windshield. The service manager saw the distortion in my windshield and then went to check some other 2012 Sonata's. He said that the same distortion was in those also and that no one else had complained. He said that he could order a windshield replacement but that it would undoubtly be the same as what I already had. He gave me the Hyundai customer service phone number. I called them and was assigned the case #4861688. And was told to take the car to another car dealer to see what they had to say. I took the care to greenville Hyundai, sd, and that sales manager also saw the distortion but said that it was in all the 2011 and 2012 Sonata's. I was told to call customer service. Just for good measure I then took the car to capitol Hyundai in columbia, SC. That service manager also saw the distortion but gave me the same advice - to call customer service. So I called customer service 800-633-5151. That person told me that the case had been closed when I was told to take the car to another Hyundai dealer and see what they said. She then gave me the email address to make this complaint. She said that if enough people complained then you would issue a recall to replace the windshield. The distortion through the windshield is only seen from the drivers seat - so only at an angle. It's a safety hazard. Please help me solve this problem. The failure date was Tue., Apr. 10, 2012.

car   Windshield problem of Infiniti G35

The vehicle involved was a 2003 Infiniti G35 coupe. Im currently having trouble with my center console losing power to my ac and radio. The problems range from center console display shortages, ac blasting at full strength and being unable to change the setting, to the radio intermittently putting out sound. This problem has led to safety issues with the car in that the inability to control the ac results in fogged over windshields leading to poor visibility. I've read online that this problem affects many owners of the same car. It was such a problem that Infiniti recalled the '03 G35 sedan for the exact same problems. It is embarrassing that inifiniti does not stand by their product across the board. If they acknowledged that it was a problem in the sedan why are they not responsible for fixing the same problem in the two door model. Would like to know how this problem may be remedied. This issue happened on Saturday, July 2, 2011.

car   Windshield problem of Jeep Patriot

The vehicle involved is a 2014 Jeep Patriot.

Did some searching on the internet and found other people having the same problem. This was not caused by a rock or foreign object - it happened right in front of my eyes.

I have contacted Jeep manufacture and filed complaints so it will be on file. It was recommended to go back to dealership and have them look at it and will do in near future but I wanted to file a complaint/concern with your agency too. I do not have much faith in the dealership as to making a resolve with this issue. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This windshield problem happened on Thu., Nov. 1, 2012.

car   Windshield problem of Mercedes Benz SLK230

The vehicle having this issue was a 1999 Mercedes Benz Slk230. This is a report about unusual fogging up of all vehicle windows if the a/c is switched off while driving. This makes the car undriveable without a/c being on all the time or having to open windows due to lack of visibility through the windshield. If, for some reason, the a/c malfunctions while driving, this could pose a dangerous situation if people don't realize what happened quickly. This is very similar to what happens if one drives with the climate control on recycle instead of allowing fresh air in cold climate. But in this case, it is fogging up regardless of the temperature/humidity outside and even when the climate control is not on recycle mode. The car has a fresh/recirc flap inside the dashboard automatically controlled by a flap actuator. If this part fails, as I suspect it has happened, then the flap can get stuck in recirc mode which no fresh air will ever enter the car when windows are closed. Even if a/c is on to prevent fogging, driving with no fresh air coming in can be dangerous as carbon dioxide builds up inside from breathing leading to sleepiness in the driver (which is why driving for long with recirc air is not recommended). The problem is that this is a silent malfunction, and other than the fogging problem, there is no other indication. I have taken this to the dealer and they say they cannot reproduce the problem. But I can reliably reproduce this within 3 minutes of driving with a/c off. There is no recourse left for me to get this problem fixed and driving this way if there is no fresh air coming is dangerous to me and to others on the road. This issue happened on September 10, 2009.

car   Windshield problem of Mitsubishi Lancer

The vehicle involved is a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer.

car   Windshield problem of Nissan Murano

The car involved is a 2005 Nissan Murano. When driving over a bump or driving on a bumpy road the driver's side sun visor falls or drops down unexpectedly. It appears that the visor is not tightly held by the bracket that it sits on. When this occurs, there is complete loss of vision through the front windshield. When driving at higher speeds (or any speed for that matter), this loss of vision might cause an accident if the visor is not raised up quickly enough. I have researched this problem online and I have found that there are many, many other Nissan Murano owners with the same complaint, especially for owners with model years 2005, 2006 and 2007. This is definitely something that should be investigated before there are any serious accidents or loss of life as a result of this defect. This is something that should be recalled and replaced with a new sun visor. The passenger's side sun visor does not exhibit this behavior. This situation has happened to me numerous times. It was Mon., Feb. 22, 2010 when this windshield issue occurred.

car   Windshield problem of Subaru Tribeca

The vehicle involved is a 2006 Subaru b9 Tribeca. While driving 65mph on the NJ turnpike southbound by exit 2, the hood on our 2006 b9 Tribeca flew open, shattered my windshield, dented my roof and blocked my vision. It was amazing that I was able to keep the car straight and move from the left lane to the right shoulder without crashing. My wife helped navigate us off the road. We were over 2 hrs into our trip. This is clearly a failure of the hood latch mechanism. I closed the hood the best I could and drove 11 miles to nearest Subaru dealer. Because we were on a family vacation my kids were shaken up. We had to rent a car to continue trip. Waiting to hear back from Subaru and from insurance company. Latch was ripped from chassis, hinges were ripped from chassis, windshield was shattered, roof dented, hood dented, interior damage - mirror, lights. This windshield issue occurred Feb. 18, 2012.

car   Windshield problem of Volvo V70

The car is a 2009 Volvo V70. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is YV1BW98209_. I have a windshield problem: the seal that secures the windshield to the roof of the car has failed along the entire length of the top of the windshield. This was found during troubleshooting a leak problem -- water was entering the car when it rained, leaking from the rear-view mirror and the light above it (note - my V70 wagon does * have a sunroof). Upon inspection by an auto glass technician, the windshield easily lifted away from the car when it was pushed from inside the cabin. The technician told me that this is a major safety problem. Without a proper seal on the windshield, the entire structural design safety of the car is compromised. If the car was in an accident, especially a front-end collision, the windshield would not absorb any of the impact as it was designed to, resulting in greater damage to the vehicle and making it unsafe. I was advised not to operate the vehicle until it was repaired. I looked at some online Volvo forums and noted that other Volvo owners have had this problem. The technician also stated that he has noticed this problem on other Volvo vehicles, and was replacing about 2 or 3 a month. He believes it is a manufacturing defect and that Volvo should issue a recall to correct this problem. This problem occurred on Dec. 24, 2013.

car   Windshield problem of Volvo XC70

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Volvo Xc70. Here is the description of the problem that I posted on swedespeed forums > v70 & v70xc & Xc70 (2001-current) regarding sun glare in our new Xc70 Volvo that is so distracting that I feel it is a hazard: post title: Xc70 light interior reflection on driver's window posted gretamax at 2:28 pm 7-31-2006 we just bought a 2006 Xc70 with a taupe interior. When driving on a sunny day the reflection of the dash on the driver's window is strong enough to be a distraction. Wearing good sunglasses helps a lot. Volvo customer service says it's the design and is suggesting putting a dark cloth over the dash. Anybody else have this problem? any constructive suggestions? here are a few of the responses I received from other Volvo owners who are experiencing the same problem: post title: Xc70 light interior reflection on driver's window (dugums) posted kasumi at 8:00 am 8-1-2006 I thought my wife was crazy when she complained about the reflection in our 2004 v70. Then I tried to drive - very distracting. Its not awful, but on a really bright day, it can definitely affect your view. Post title: Xc70 light interior reflection on driver's window (madeinjapan) posted freeworld at 12:26 pm 8-12-2006 ditto, ditto, and ditto! you are not making this up. My s60 has the black over the cowl and that reduces reflection in that area. My wifes Xc70 is all light and the glare is huge. My polarized sunglasses help a lot, but I now have to buy her a pair since the Xc70 was my idea. This windshield issue occurred Monday, July 31, 2006.

car   Windshield problem of BMW 328

The vehicle involved was a 2009 BMW 328i. After only 16,000 miles of use, the windshield first appeared to be completely "sandblasted" with tiny indentations. When driving into the sun the glare becomes so intense that you can no longer see the road. You effectively become blinded and certainly would not be able to react to an emergency situation. The same situation occurs at night when driving towards oncoming headlights. This particular vehicle is rarely driven on highways and is always garaged. BMW does not consider this to be a safety issue, will not replace the windshield under warranty and cannot guarantee that a replacement windshield will not perform in the same manner. It was Jul. 4, 2011 when this windshield issue happened.

car   Windshield problem of Buick Lesabre

The vehicle involved is a 2002 Buick Lesabre. I was driving on the highway a few days before December 3, 2011, and I heard a loud "pop" sound from the back seat of my car. On the 3rd, I was driving along and started hearing the sound of an open window in the back seat. I tried to close the back-right window with the power window control on the driver's door, but it didn't move the window (I heard the motor running, though). I then parked the car and got out to try to pull/push the window shut, but it would not stay all the way up. It had started with just an inch or so being open, but eventually it slid down so it was only about halfway up. This issue happened on Saturday, December 3, 2011.. Read more...
