27 August 2014 2008 Nissan Versa The car had been making a noise on the front driver side, i thought it was the brakes, when i left for work the car made a loud bang. i got it back home to find the front coil spring snapped.
27 August 2014 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Tried to come to a stop approaching an intersection, abs pulsated at brake pedal. brakes almost let my coast into the car ahead of me. symptoms continue to this day after many repairs. pulled abs fuse to disable abs to keep it from interfering with braking action.
27 August 2014 2007 BMW 328i Air bag and seat belt warning lights on dash remain lit at all times. additionally, the "passenger airbag disabled" indicator remains lit at all times. there is a recall campaign for the passenger seat sensor mat issue which caused these problems, yet apparently not for my vin. the disabled passenger seat airbag is a major safety issue, and clearly my vin should be part of the recall.
27 August 2014 2008 Ford Fusion Air bag readiness light on the instrument panel started coming on and going off. after a week it started staying on after starting up the car and it does not go off. next the seat belt light stays on after you have locked in your seatbelt on the drivers side and no one is in the passenger seat.
27 August 2014 1997 Volvo 850 The tire dealer recommended michelin primacy mxv4 as a replacement tire for my 1997 volvo 850 (normally aspirated) sedan. the michelin website described this tire as an "acceptable substitute" for the tires specified by volvo because michelin no longer offers high performance tires in my size. stopping power is much worse with these new michelin tires. they squeal easily, even at volvo's highest recommended air pressure (36psi). i had difficulty stopping from 50mph in an emergency, for the first time in my 17 year ownership of this vehicle. i blame these new "comfort oriented" tires.
27 August 2014 2008 Toyota Camry The dashboard of my camry se began to crystalize and became sticky to the touch. it is now so sticky that the least touch and nick pulls the vinyl right off. it is so shiny that it gives off a reflection while driving. it is very distracting when driving as it seems that something is in your eyes. the glare makes for a dangerous situation because your judgment is affected. this is a safety hazard and should be recalled by the dealer. i have several others with camrys having the same problem.
27 August 2014 2011 Volkswagen Jetta My three year old, bought brand new from the dealership jetta, and after parking overnight i got in my car to drive to work and my handsfree bluetooth, satellite, radio unit would not turn on. this is a major concern and driving hazard concidering i am on call 24 hours a day and recieve calls in my vehicle which is the reason why i bought this vehicle with the integrated bluetooth. after checking all the fuses i did some online research and found that this is a reoccurring problem with this vehicle and there was a class action lawsuit already started due to the inordinate amount of claims being filed. i then brought the vehicle to the dealership where they told me that there was a short in the unit and it would have to be replaced. i then contacted volkswagen of america where they acknowledged they there was a know short in those units but due to the miles on my vehicle nothing could be done. the unit is 3 years old and with the known electrical defects, potential fire hazards the vehicle needs to be investigated.
27 August 2014 2009 Kia Borrego I have a 2009 kia borrego it has cost me $900.00 to replace the sway bars on both sides my car has almost 100,000 miles on it and now i have the flashing check engine light on my suv i have had it looked about and it is going to cost me $1,300 more because it is the catalytic converter i have had this car for 5 years now i got it used and it is becoming a money pit i have been experiencing some lagging on the accelerator and some shifting noises when in park to reverse it will sound like the transmission falling out and now my truck sounds like a diesel for some unknown reason kia needs to do a recall on all the 2009 kia borrego and give people a choice to take an replace the suv.. now my family love kia but this has been the worst experience ever with this car now we're thinking about changing to ford...
27 August 2014 2008 Lincoln MKX About every few weeks, upon driving from a stopped position, it seems like the car is stuck in first gear or in low gear- it accelerates upon stepping on pedal, however the car is just crawling along and not picking up speed at all. consequently, i have to stop the car and put it in park and then back in drive, once i do this it works normal again. on other occasions i feel a hard kick when i put the car out of drive and back into drive. this is very dangerous if i happen to be pulling into a busy intersection and i would have to come to a complete stop to get this car going again.
26 August 2014 2007 Toyota Camry Dash gets stickey in the hot weather, when it is out in the sun or in the garage.
