problem #1

DeVille 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,800 miles
Car stalled out while driving at 45 miles per hour. Difficult to control with no power steering and power brakes. Had I been driving around a corner, on the highway or going down a hill, this would have resulted in an accident. Auto had to be towed, would not start again. Dealer said problem was the fuel pump failure. Fuel pump also failed on 08/04/2003. In that instance, the auto was stopped and would not start. Appears fuel pump design is defective and very unsafe. I did notice other complaints on your web site for this model/year car that show the auto stalling out while being driven. These might also be related to the same problem.
