31 October 2014 2000 Ford Mustang I have purchased a used 2000 ford mustang and to make a long story short the transmission will not go into gear unless i rev the rpms up very high and i am interested in keeping this vehicle so i looked on line and found this is a very common problem with this car, i have went from site to site, i don't mind paying for the repair if need be, but this is dangerous, i don't want to injury myself or anyone else. i have found there is a problem with the design and needs to be corrected. i would like to know what is the solution and cause of this problem. i want to thank you so much for your time
31 October 2014 2006 Kia Rio I have only had this problem with my car after the airbag was repaired after the recall in 2012. the passenger airbag light stays on even when someone is sitting in the seat. my boyfriend and i are the only ones that ever sit on the passenger side and both weigh more then the necessary weight. the car was taken in twice because the first time i took the car in they could not replicate the problem. the next day the airbags malfunctioned again. i took the car back in the following week and this time they kept it for the week and were able to get the light to stay on. they now claim that they need to replace the bottom half of the seat and it will cost almost $800. i feel that another recall is needed.
31 October 2014 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport lost control of vehicle and proceeded to drive onto shoulder. after checking i noticed the frame had ripped ,broken off. the passenger side frame was completely rotted for 3-4 feet. from the front door to the rear wheel . after inspection of the entire frame the driver side is unaffected which leads me to believe it is poor metal/frame from the factory,no anty corrosion was apply to the metal frame from mitsubishi factory. g.v.
31 October 2014 2005 Nissan Xterra The transmission shakes violently on acceleration. so i drove the vehicle to the dealership for a diagnosis. i have learned that the radiator cracking and leaking into the transmission is a common problem for the 2005 nissan xterra, and that nissan settled a lawsuit in october of 2012. i do not remember getting any information that this might be a problem and i have to pay $3000 to get the transmission and radiator replaced! after 100,000 miles i am stuck to pay the complete cost of the repairs. is there any kind of recourse for this problem that i am unaware of?
31 October 2014 2012 Toyota Camry While driving at approximately 65 mph the sunroof of my toyota camry exploded. it was a loud explosion-type sound. there were no overpasses in sight and very little traffic on the highway.the sunroof visor was closed, therefore no glass debris affected passengers. the dealership seems to insist that something hit the sunroof. the explosion of the sunroof came out of nowhere without warning. my 2-year-old daughter was sitting in the back middle seat and could have been seriously injured with glass shards, had the visor been open.
31 October 2014 2001 Chevrolet Malibu Turning the car on and the engine revs with high rpm. car continues to accelerate on own. this can also happen randomly without any warning when driving, you can take your foot off the accelerstor and the speed will increase from 20 mph up to 55 or 60 mph riding the brakes and getting to a place where you can turn the car off helps, sometimes. this is frightening and dangerous.
30 October 2014 2010 Mercury Milan While driving on a 4 lane highway, my car jerked and the wrench warning light can on and no acceleration while i pressed the gas pedal. i was able to get the car to coast to safety and when i stopped the car is was jerking back. i turned the car off for a few minutes and turned it back on, it started up and ran fine. this incident happened again today while driving in town, not once but twice while i was driving 15 mph and the 2nd incident today about 30 mph. both of these times i was able to get off the road safely, and got the car to restart and make it home 45 miles away. i am afraid to drive my car, that in heavy traffic, this could cause a serious accident.
30 October 2014 2012 Ford Focus I own a 2012 ford focus sel that has had multiple transmission issues along with an electrical problem relating to the steering wheel and a battery failure. the vehicle has had issues accelerating through 1st gear which was evident by extreme shuddering and shaking of the vehicle. this had put me into dangerous situations numerous times when trying to merge onto freeways as the vehicle hesitated to get up to speed in time. my transmission was replaced at 9,562 miles in sept. 2013. the shuttering and acceleration problems reoccurred at 21,904 miles in sept. 2014 and ford ran a system update to 'fix' the problem. they also replaced the steering wheel for electrical problems at this time. the acceleration issues continued for the next month and the clutch was finally replaced in oct. 2014. a couple weeks later the battery was dead 3 sundays in a row and was also replaced. ford has not been able to reassure me that these transmission issues will not be on-going. i continuously read others accounts online stating they are having the same issues i am having, and in many cases their dealerships are ignoring the issues and making excuses. please look into this matter.
30 October 2014 2012 Ford Fiesta Rear passenger door, driver's side. i opened the door to get something out, never coming close to the latch, and when i went to close it, the latch didn't latch. it could not be corrected with manually moving it. have to take to shop now! only 37,000!
30 October 2014 2007 BMW 750i I purchased my 2007 750i bmw in 11/2013. shortly after i purchased it, i started having brake booster issues. the brake pad becomes hard to press and i have actually rolled in the middle of intersections because the car would not stop. i took my car in to bmw of dallas and was told that my brake booster was contaminated but my vehicles brake booster was "checked out" (not repaired) in 2011 and didn't have a problem "then" so bmw is not going to repair the recall now. i was told if i wanted the brake booster repaired i would have to pay for it and bmw is not responsible because in 2011 when it was "checked out" it was fine. i feel that bmw knows this is an issue and before i have an accident or kill myself they should honor the recall and “repair” my vehicles brake booster free of charge. gm is honoring recalls after issues caused deaths…..is bmw waiting for deaths to honor their recall??? that’s not good, not good at all!
