problem #1

Nov 272008


  • 78,000 miles
Car cold stalls, stalls when at traffic lights, engine shakes violently, brakes squeal an grind, when starting car floods itself and cannot be turned on for a few hours, had an accident at 44-50 mph and airbag did not deploy, gears stick and do not come out of gear at times:insurance was called at time of accident and said no reason could be identified as to why airbag did not deploy. Car has had new brakes every 3-4 months, brand new cooling system, tune-up, oil change every 2500-3000 miles, dealership updated software, cold start stalling problem could not be duplicated, check engine light keeps coming on and off and no problems found at auto shop. I contacted the dealership and they informed me that since the car was used they were not going to and could not do anything about it and refused to check anything out or even listen to my concerns. I have researched and there have been many complaints on this model of vehicle doing all of these things. Since the first initial time of problem problems have continued. Car is at 96,000 miles but has left me strandeded since and keep having to replace parts.
