29 July 2015 2011 Ford F150 1/2 Ton - Pickup At roughly 32000 miles, in october of 2014 i experienced a failure of the electric brake vacuum assist. the symptoms were that the pump constantly ran and could audibly be heard where it was not previously constantly running. as soon as i noticed a change i reported the issue to johnson ford in pittsfield ma.. the pump was replaced in october of 2014 under warranty. no recall or campaign has been implemented for this condition but numerous reports by ford owners have been made regarding the same condition. i believed the audible noise i was hearing was a steering component because i was simultaneously having an issue with "notchy" steering. while negotiating a long, gradual turn my steering would lock while turning left. the wheel would lock when the top of the steering wheel was in the area of the 10 o'clock position. no crash occurred but the condition was very unsafe. the vehicle had to be driven erratically to remedy the condition. a hard yank on the wheel was necessary to forcibly increase steering input. the steering components were also replaced in october of 2014 by johnson ford under warranty. no recall or campaign has been implemented for this condition but numerous reports have been made regarding the same condition. the electric vacuum assist replaced in october of 2014, nine months ago was the same part with no updates as the one that failed. i again hear the vacuum assist motor running almost constant as it was when replaced. the truck is no longer under warranty. i have only had this vacuum assist for nine months. i spoke with ford customer service. no warranty is available as i have driven the truck in excess of 12,000 miles (12,200 miles at the time i reported the problem). the customer service employee offered no service other than to bring it to ford at my expense for repairs, $130.00 diagnosis, $580 pump, $200.00 labor.
29 July 2015 2007 Dodge Nitro I have a 2007 dodge nitro with milage at 48,545. i have had a few incidents where i have been driving my car and while turning into a parking space my car has turned off on me out of no where also my stearing wheels locks up on me, thankfully this has not happened while i have been on freeway or on street driving at regular driving speeds otherwise you would have been hearing from my attorney. also we dont get much rain in california, however during the rainy season i dont know from where but there is water getting into my car on d, leaving puddles of water in my car. another issue is that my alarm goes off at all times of the day by itself. also i do regular oil changes as needed on my car,in between oil chnages i notice my oil goes down substantually bout 3 to 4 quarts, and there is no leak in my car. the bottom line here is that the vehcile i purchaed is a lemon.
28 July 2015 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee I was driving on the highway when my battery light came on and moments later my wipers started to go on themselves along with my blinkers blinking and gps screen flashing, and every other possible light flashing. then my truck suddenly shut off and i had no brakes or power steering and lost control of my vehicle and couldn't stop or direct it to where i wanted it to go. luckily i was on the right lane and my vehicle veered to the right towards the grass and luckily there was enough grass to slow me to a stop. god was on my side! if i was on the left or middle lane it would of been a horrific incident because it was during rush hour. i was so scared of my life i would of crashed and would of been in a horrible accident. and thank god my kids wasn't in the car with me. but i have a problem because there is a recall about the exact problem that i'm having with is nhtsa campaign is number 14v634000 and the dealer is stating that my vin and vehicle does not apply to it! but i'm having the exact problem and chrysler needs to re check other vins because i'm 100 percent sure that's the recall. so please respond to me as soon as possible because i need this issue resolved or i will be contacting my lawyer and will fight this hard and will not give up and will give it my all to resolve this the right way. thank you! alfred adzemovic. also the dealer is security dodge in amityville new york
28 July 2015 2011 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 1/2 Ton / 2011 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 3/4 Ton I bought a gm certified suburban and less than two weeks later the dashboard cracked behind the airbag. i called the dealer and gm and alerted them to the problem and told them i felt unsafe driving the vehicle with my children in the vehicle. i feel that if that airbag deploys it could send that sharp piece of broken plastic flying through my car. they will not fix the dashboard without me paying for it and said it is not a common complaint people are having. however, everyone i have talked to with a suburban, tahoe, or pick up truck between the years of 2007-2013 is experiencing the same crack in the same place near that airbag. gm needs to fix these before innocent people get hurt.
28 July 2015 2002 Jeep Liberty Recall 15v-046 it has been 7 months with no remedy in sight. this recall should be added to the nhtsa suit against fiat chrysler automotive. we are driving potential time bombs as the air bag could deploy at any given moment causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, not only harming the occupants but also other people nearby.the nhtsa has a duty to push this manufacturer to make these repairs a top priority or get these vehicles off the road.
28 July 2015 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Fuel leak on drivers side of car by exhaust heat shield while parked.
28 July 2015 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee My 2008 jeep grand cherokee stalled out on the freeway when i was stopping for traffic. since then it has stalled multiple times. pulling away from a stop sign; pulling into my driveway; driving on the freeway with or without cruise on. even while i was trailering my boat. i can re-start the jeep by quickly putting trans into neutral:turning the ignition off than engaging the starter. it won't re-start unless you turn the ignition off first. i don't believe it to be a key/ignition switch problem. i believe it to be a computer control problem. when my jeep stalls; the key is in its proper position every time.
28 July 2015 2006 Nissan Sentra I was driving to work on the freeway going about 60mph when all of a sudden my 2006 nissan sentra ( se 1.8) gave a small jerk and the rpms reduced drastically. i also began to lose my steering and no matter how hard i pressed the gas pedal the car wouldn't accelerate. i was able to make it to the shoulder, i turned off the car and after a few minutes it was fine. then later that night as i was sitting with the engine at an idle, the car suddenly died but it did started back up. i decided to take it to my mechanic and it died 2 or 3 times while i was driving it. the mechanic couldn't find anything wrong. my check engine light never came on and the car didn't throw a code. i brought the car home and parked it because i do not feeling safe driving it. tonight i sat in the car and turned it on to see if it would start. it did start but every second or so there was an loud click from the engine after which the car would give a sizeable shudder. also the rpms rev'd when i put the car in neutral or park. they would dip when the car was in drive or reverse. i see on the web there is a recall for the camshaft and crankshaft position sensor. i haven't called nissan yet but after reading other complaints on this website i have no hope they will honor the recall as my vin isn't included. i hope someone at the nhtsa forces an expanded recall. it isn't right that those of us having problems have to pay for a known problem. in addition, my car is now sitting because i'm scared of driving it just to have it die, causing me to lose steering and possibly brakes. i will let my mechanic know about the recall to see if in the end, my car is also one of those unlucky ones that have the same issue but don't fall under the recall.
