29 May 2015 2009 Nissan Versa I was turning onto a side street and heard a thump under my hood on the right side of the car. there was no difficulty driving although i kept hearing thumps for days after. i went in to a garage to get my snow tires put on and the garage saw that the spring above my right front tire was sheered in half and had damaged my tire. i had it towed to the nearest nissan and they fixed it while i went and bought new tires. about 3 months later, it happened on the left side. then about a year after that, the spring above the right front tire broke again, so i replaced it a third time to a cost of $1200 per spring. i contacted nissan and was told no recall was in place for this. the mechanic at the garage told me this was a common problem for this car. in addition, at the same time, i noticed the engine losing power at different times, especially when stopped at a light or upon acceleration from a low speed to a high speed. no check engine light, no engine trouble noted, just loss of power. shutting the car off and turning it back on seems to reset it but it's an ongoing issue.

29 May 2015 2007 Chevrolet Malibu The electric power steering has failed several times almost causing my son to crash into another vehicle. my wife almost ran into a building and other vehicles because of the failure and now refuses to drive it. this has occurred weekly for the last two years sometimes with the failure lasting several minutes to several days. gm has recalled other years and needs to include all 2007 malibu before there are more fatalities.
28 May 2015 2011 Toyota Camry Both sun visors broke within one week apart. the hinge of the sun visor stopped working causing visor to hang in the field of vision. there was no warning leading up to the incident.
28 May 2015 2011 Ford Edge The driver door ajar alert would not go off and neither would the interior lights even though the door was shut. the lights would stay on while driving and the doors would not lock once i started driving either since it was saying the driver door was open. i'm waiting for the batter to just die since my interior lights stay on for a long time after i shut and lock my doors because the driver door ajar alert never goes off. i've called multiple dealerships and they won't cover it because there is no recall on it. there needs to be a recall on this issue because i don't know if my door is every really shut, my interior lights will only go off after i've been driving for a few minutes and the doors won't even lock right!
28 May 2015 2005 Saab 9-7X There's a recall on low beam headlamps shutting off while driving at night. i called saab dealership because i was pulled over by state trooper bc lights shut off while i was driving and issued a warning. dealership said there was a recall but no part available yet. i asked when there might be a part available and they said they've been waiting sense last june of 2014 and still no part available. this is a serious issue bc i drive home every night and no warning when lights will randomly shut off.
28 May 2015 2009 Pontiac G6 I purchased car new in 2009 and have had problem after problem starting with exhaust system just weeks after i got it. it has had 3 recalls but i more are due. the headlights started going one after another and at one time all front lights were out at the same time. i had them repaired with new connector. currently, the left headlight is out again and a new headlamp and another connector was installed and still will not stay on. other owners i have spoken with have the same problems that i am having. but what can we do? i've been experiencing power steering going out occasionally for no apparent reason what so ever. there is a recall but my car is not covered under the recall although there were 2009 models that were. i was told my vin number wasn't included in the recall. the air bag alert stays on. i had it diagnosed along with the seat belt alert and both need to be replaced. the seat belt sensor module needs to be replaced in the passenger seat. my rear door locks don't work and that's electrical problem. i feel the car manufacturer knew these problems existed and should be held accountable for selling these death traps. with all these serious problems, i can't grasp why gm don't take responsibility for all this and get them off the rode. i and other motorists are not safe while i'm still driving this car. do the right thing gm and recall all 2009 pontiac g6 and make them safe.
