I know that this problem is under a previous recall, but I have taken this in to the dealership three times to have it fixed and it has only lasted maybe 6 months. I 'm concerned about my family's safety. I would like this brought to the manufactures attention. I had tried to trade this car in, but the dealership, which was not the manufacture was uneasy about this recall. I feel that this needs further investigation. Thank you.
