25 October 2014 2003 Pontiac Aztek I had a flat tire, rear driver side tire. i was unaware of the actual mileage that was on my car at that time. pulled over and changed flat tire with spare doughnut tire (which is a joke). i proceeded to drive off and the the abs light immediately came on and said it was disabled. i continued driving to les schwab tire center in hood river, or.. they said the flat was not repairable and they were unable to sell me 1 tire since my vehicle is awd. i limped back home to portland on the 35 mph spare tire. i was able to get cheaper tires through another dealer but when my new tires were put on my abs never reactivated and to this day the light stays on saying it is disabled. it is the difference between driving a 1973 monte carlo vs a 2003 pontiac aztek. i have had several places check it out and they have said it is in the wheel sensors??? all 4? i had them replaced and it still says the abs is disabled. what is the problem? and this went out over having a flat tire?? i do not have the money to take it to dealer. please tell me what to do to get this fixed. it is annoying at best. thank you.
25 October 2014 2002 Honda Accord This vehicle, like many other hondas of this era, has the 1-2 gear shifting issue. it shifts very hard from first to second and even downshifting seems to be getting harder. the issue has been going on for a very long time, and at 200,000 miles, the car is to the point that i try to drive it only in second until the lower two gears are no longer needed. we've already replaced a mainshaft ($380), which could be related to the incident (slamming into gear over and over again). there is a 3-4 second lag changing directly into second gear. there is also a lag during normal operation. it's almost as if there's a gap in between 1 and 2 where the car almost appears to be in neutral for a moment of time. if triggered just right, applying extra throttle after the transmission has already started trying to shift (which isn't noticeable as the process initiates), the engine speed will rise as if in neutral and then will slam into gear. i actually had wheel spin at one point. this erratic behavior could cause an accident, as the vehicle will take off on me. if accelerating and the car is in 2nd, the car will not have much power, so then i will gradually give it more gas, only to have it downshift and then take off (wheels chirp and everything). if i let go of the gas it will slam into second and lurch a second time, which when braking is very annoying and severely affects the braking distance. i actually almost hit somebody this past week because of a very similar incident. this incident could cause an accident by losing control of the vehicle, especially in an environment with low traction (i live in chicago, we only have a few months of optimal driving conditions). besides that fact, honda knows about the issue, and should have recalled this transmission years ago. hondas used to be great, but this is really hurting their reputation with us.
25 October 2014 2012 Chrysler 300 I was entering the freeway and at about 45 mph the car just stalled dropping speed to about 15 mph so i released the gas pedal and started to gain speed when i was going to merge onto the first lane at about 50 mph the car stalled again stopping the traffic behind me. i almost drove off the freeway to avoid the cars behind me. thats the scariest but like a month ago it did the same thing at a stop light it just wouldn't respond when i tried to take off so i had to turn it off and start it again.
25 October 2014 2010 Chevrolet Malibu My seat belt warning pings when i am buckled up and goes off as frequently as it would if i was not buckled up. my "service air bag" light randomly pops up my car revs when im driving at the same pace on a flat road. which is scary because it speeds up too. my driving wheel sticks sometimes. i feel like its not a safe car i bought this car in feb thinking it was a good investment and i regret it 100%
25 October 2014 2009 Honda Civic The driver-side door handle on my 2009 honda civic lx broke. i am the original owner, the car has been well-maintained and there is no reason for the door handle to break at such an early stage.
25 October 2014 2010 Toyota Prius I continue having this issue when braking over a bump or braking while turning. the car speeds up instead of slowing down when pressing the brakes. this is very dangerous issue and an cause an accident. i talked to toyota who advice me to take it to the dealer. dealer finds no trouble. i have reported this many times to my dealer and toyota with nothing really done.
25 October 2014 2007 Toyota Camry My dashboard is sticking. i bought my 2007 toyota camry new and have found many complaints about the same issue from other 2007 owners.
25 October 2014 2011 Chrysler Town & Country 2011 chrysler town & country would randomly not start. we took the car to the chrysler dealer and they could not reproduce the issue and did nothing. the issue seemed to get worse. the car continued to give my wife and i intermittent starting issues, but now it would randomly stall while driving (with kids in the car). brought it back to the dealer and they replaced the torque converter and trans pump (covered under warranty). the issue was not resolved. brought the car back to the dealer the third time. they replaced the tipm and charged us $850. better, but now my minivan engine is loud and it sounds like i'm driving a vw bug.
24 October 2014 2006 Chevrolet Impala I purchased my 2006 impala ss brand new in 2006. i've been a loyal gm customer my whole life. at 99,000 started experiencing transmission issues, slipping,and hard shifting... at 101,000 miles i was driving down the highway and my transmission stopped working. i refinanced my car to rebuild the transmission for $2,200 . after the rebuild transmission was working ok. then at 122,000 miles it stopped working again... it was snowing and i was stranded in the turn lane of a road with a speed limit of 55mph... i turned off my car let the engine cool down and back on at least 20 times... my car moved about 200 feet each time... an hour later i got back to my house that was 5miles from the failure. i cant afford to fix it now and i am still paying for the car. its been sitting in my yard for 10 months. this issue is very dangerous and needs to be resolved. i also received a recall for my power steering hose, got it fixed and the brackets came loose from my frame causing my steering to get very hard. i pulled over and checked my power steering fluid at walmart and it was empty. i filled it and everything was working. the next morning i had no power steering again... my hose had rubbed on my frame making a hole. i went to the store and bought more power steering fluid but after i put it in my steering was making a loud sound and didn't turn well. i think it was damaged due to the leak. i too have a loud clicking sound coming from my dashboard when i turn on my car. i was told by the dealership it was the vent flap motor ... $750 dollars to repair... part is only $65 the rest is labor... also when i first bought my car i had to get all 4door windows replaced (under warranty) due to improper window guide adjustment. and my automatic trunk release works off and on, my keyless entry only works 5 feet from my car with new batteries,and all tire pressure sens. went bad$100 each help
