problem #2

Jul 102010


  • 13,421 miles
At any given time, during normal driving conditions the vehicle loses power and reduce speed without warrant, the RPM gauge will show at least 3 fluctuations of speed from 500 to about 3000 RPM when this occurs. Attempts to step on the gas pedal will not correct the situation. Second reaction from the driver would be to step on the brake pedal, and the vehicle will try to accelerate on its own. The vehicle will also stall if this occurs when being stopped at a traffic light and trying to accelerate. The dealer could not duplicate the failure in any of the three instances the vehicle was taken to them. Current mileage 13,421.
