EXTERIOR LIGHTING: HAZARD FLASHING WARNING LIGHTS

5/14/2012 - CONCORD, NH
I HAVE RECENTLY PURCHASED A 99 OLDSMOBILE ALERO. THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE TURN SIGNALS/HAZARD BUTTON WHICH STARTED OUT WITH A LOUD BUZZING WHILE THE TURN SIGNALS WERE ACTIVATED. I COULD SOMETIMES GET THE BUZZING TO STOP BY PUSHING THE HAZARD BUTTON AT THE SAME TIME AS THE TURN SIGNAL. NOW IT'S AT THE POINT WHERE MY SIGNALS DON'T EVEN WORK 95% OF THE TIME. I'LL START MY CAR AND THE FIRST TIME I USE THEM THEY MIGHT WORK, BUT AS SOON AS I TURN THE WHEEL THEY STOP WORKING AND DO NOT WORK FOR THE REST OF THE TRIP. THE HAZARDS HAVE STOPPED WORKING AS WELL. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT MY VIN NUMBER IS NOT COVERED. ONLINE RESEARCH HAS PULLED UP NHTSA ACTION NUMBER : RQ04005 WHICH STATES THAT GM WILL ISSUE A SPECIAL POLICY FOR 1999-2000 ALERO SINCE IT'S NOT COVERED UNDER RECALL 03V327. HOWEVER, FURTHER SEARCHES HAVE FOUND THAT RQ04005 EXPIRED IN FEBRUARY 2010. THE DEFECT ACKNOWLEDGED IN RECALL 03V327 IS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE ISSUE ACKNOWLEDGED IN NHTSA ACTION# RQ04005, SO WHY IS THERE AN ALLOWED EXPIRATION DATE FOR THE REMEDY OF THE PROBLEM?

SUSPENSION

I AM ASHAMED TO SAY I OWN A 1999 OLDSMOBILE ALERO. I BOUGHT IT LAST YEARS AS A BACK-UP CAR, SO WE WOULD HAVE TRANSPORTATION SHOULD ONE OF OUR NEWER VEHICLE HAVE PROBLEMS. I GAVE $2000 FOR IT AND HAVE SPENT JUST AS MUCH ON REPAIRS. THE TURN SIGNALS ONLY WORK INTERMITTENTLY THOUGH EVERY FUSE IN IT HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE ANTI-LOCK BREAK LIGHT ON THE DASH STAYS ON. THE FRONT PASSENGER STRUT BROKE AND BLEW OUT THE TIRE IN THE PROCESS. I WAS FORTUNATE I WASN'T KILLED WHEN THIS HAPPENED. AND NOW THE HEATER BLOWER HAS STARTED MAKING AN AWFUL NOISE, SO IT WILL LIKELY NEED TO BE REPLACED SOON. IN ADDITION THE CHANGE OIL LIGHT STAYS ON, I HAVE HAD IT TO NUMEROUS SHOPS AND NO ONE CAN DETERMINE WHY IT WON'T RESET. THE WARNING LIGHTS ON THE DASH FROM ALL OF THIS ARE A CONSIDERABLE DISTRACTION AS WELL AS ALL THE PROBLEMS THEY POINT TO. I AM APPALLED THAT IN THE USA WE PUT A STAMP OF APPROVAL ON SUCH A HORRIBLE VEHICLE. IN MY OPINION THE ENTIRE VEHICLE SHOULD BE RECALLED AND REPLACED WITH ONE THAT RUNS PROPERLY. IT IS ABSURD AND DANGEROUS. I AM FORTUNATE I WAS NOT GOING A HIGH SPEED WHEN EITHER STRUT BROKE...OH NEARLY FORGOT TO MENTION THAT THE REAR DRIVER-SIDE STRUT ALSO BROKE JUST THIS WEEK. MY BIGGEST QUESTION IS, WHO'S NAME DO I GIVE TO MY LAWYER WHEN I AM FORCED TO DRIVE THIS VEHICLE AND SOMEONE IS HURT? IT IS LIKELY, GIVEN THE HAZARDS THAT COME WITH THIS CAR THAT EVENTUALLY SOMETHING BAD WILL HAPPEN. I JUST PRAY I WON'T HAVE TO DRIVE IT MUCH.
