24 July 2014 2005 Buick Rendezvous When i would start my car in the morning, i would get a overwhelming gas smell in my to point of me thinking gas was leaking underneath my and i would get out and check and nothing. i took it to a mechanic and asked him if the car was leaking gas and he said no. i'm constantly adding power steering fluid to my vehicle at least twice a month . and recently my speedometer needle has started sticking and sometimes not working at all. ironically my gas needle is always fluctuating throughout my car trips. i'm so nervous when i drive because i think i'm about to run out of gas even though i may have recently added gas to the car. this may sound simple but the gas fumes are making me sick and my two kids especially since all of us suffer from asthma. please provide a resolution or fix for these unhealthy incidents.
24 July 2014 2007 Kia Spectra Front passenger seat air bag sensor is defective. weight sensor on dash will not work and the air bag symbol is turned on the dash.
24 July 2014 2008 Chevrolet Impala After driving my car to the store i pulled up to park my car. after i came back to get into it the shifter would not disengage at all. i was stranded. i was told it was a common and well known issue with chevrolet impala models. after contacting gm they told me they were sorry and there is nothing they can do about it. i'm still waiting to see what tricks this car does next. i now believe it is poorly made and i will never own another one.. gm cant even make a cup holder round like a cup. sorry i didn't see that before i bought it or might have an engineering clue. also both my door locks on the drivers side consecutively stopped working and its not the fuses. there's 200 bucks to fix that i don't have and i have to shift my car by using a screwdriver and pushing the silver button under the console which releases the shifter. thank god chevy had back up for that engineering mistake because i don't have the money to fix that one either. now i'm just guessing if my car should be on recall. gm told me on the phone i would just have to wait. lesson learned never by a car just because u you like the body style! thanks
24 July 2014 2009 Nissan Versa All of a sudden the trunk won't open.
24 July 2014 2011 Subaru Impreza 3 times this month had to take my subaru to dealer because my car was not accepting gas in the tank. it would squirt every gallon back at me each incident that this occurred. i had to suffer severe eye burns twice due too the gasoline hitting me directly in the face. thank god a fire did not start. now i have to take to the dealer again because problem still not solved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
24 July 2014 2006 Chevrolet HHR As i began to pull out from the parking lot after work one evening, i began to hear a chime like tone, at the same time a message appeared on the dashboard that read "power steering..." i turned off the engine, checked under the hood for a possible broken power steering belt, but could not find the power steering pump .re started the engine and the power steering worked fine for about a week. i later discovered the power system assist consist of an electric power steering motor and not a hydraulic. as time passed, the problem became more frequent. now, once the car begins to move, it takes only a couple of minutes, if not seconds, before i hear the chime, the message shows up, and here i go again, struggling to steer with one hand and shifting with the other, at times through very heavy traffic. my car is a standard shift. it has become very difficult to cross lanes wile steering with one hand at the same time you are attempting to shift gears during heavy and slow traffic. i am beginning to suffer shoulder and neck pain which compounds the problem. i called gm on this issue but the gm rep. said my vehicle was not included on the power steering recall, only recalled for ignition switch problem. i believe that if the ignition switch and power steering are recalls for other models, my 2006 hhr should also be recalled for ignition switch and the power steering issues.
24 July 2014 2009 Ford Fusion Just very concerned. the brake hub s get extremely hot and the brake pads were no good i have less than 20'000 miles on my 2009 ford fusion. the car is drove very little and is garage kept.i just don't understand the concept from ford motor to make a vehicle that the brake hubs get hot and wear out the pads. i had ford vehicles for years and never has been a problem. why do you allow a problem like this to go on.. this is a safety concern too. my older ford vehicles never did have brakes that you questioned whether or not you would be able to stop at a traffic light. now i worry that it may not stop. just a few months ago it almost didn't stop at a traffic light. when i applied the brakes it continued to roll and i rolled thru four car lengths before it finally stopped. i was so frightened !! i too noticed ford is recalling some of the newer for fusions for this problem. suggest that they recall all vechicles that have the brakes like what is on the fusion ....why does someone need to loose their lives to get a problem like this fixed?? the automobile industry is failing the consumers and lacking safety standards . usa automobile industry can do better than this
