problem #3

May 052006

S-10 Pickup 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
Battery leaked battery acid to the point that the post completely detached itself from the battery unit. When explained to dealership was told that they see this problem very frequently with these vehicles. This left me stranded with no power. If I would have been actually driving when the cable disconnected it could have caused serious problems.
