ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

7/12/2013 - BURDETT, NY
AS I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY I NOTICED A BURNING SMELL. I LOOKED TO MY RIGHT AND I SAW SMOKE. I PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. I THEN TURNED OFF MY VEHICLE. THE SMOKE STOPPED. I HAD MY DOGS BED ON THE PASSENGER SEAT. WHEN I MOVED IT, I SAW THE BURN WHOLE IN THE SEAT AND THE DOG BED. IT WAS 85 DEGREES. I DID NOT HAVE THE HEATED SEATS ON. IF I DID NOT HAVE THE TOP DOWN THE CAR WOULD HAVE FILLED WITH SMOKE CAUSING MAJOR VISIBILITY PROBLEMS. IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE DOG BED THAT SMOTHERED THE FIRE, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN FLAMES. MY DOG AND I MIGHT NOT BE HERE TO REPORT THIS FIRE. AFTER CHRYSLER INSPECTED THE VEHICLE THEY DETERMINED THERE WAS NO DEFECT. CHRYSLER WILL NOT TELL ME WHAT CAUSED IT OTHER THAN IT WAS NOT A DEFECT AND THEREFORE NOT THEIR PROBLEM. THE DEALER I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE TO SAID THERE WAS A SHORT IN THE RELAY. THERE IS NOTHING I COULD HAVE DONE TO PREVENT THIS.THIS SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. IT IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. IT COULD HAPPEN TO OTHERS.

THIS WAS A MATER OF SEVERE INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE AND COULD HAVE BEEN DEATH OR MAIMING. TRAVELING TO A NORMAL STOP AT AN INTERSECTION TRAFFIC LIGHT, BEING THE FIRST CAR TO THE LIGHT ON FLAT PAVEMENT, THE CAR'S FRONT PASSENGER SIDE LOWER BALL JOINT CAME OUT OF ITS SOCKET AND THE CAR SKIDDED TO A HALT ON THE PAVEMENT RIDING ON THE UNDERCARRIAGE OF THE VEHICLE FRAME WITH THE WHOLE TIRE AND BRAKE ASSEMBLY DANGLING BY THE BRAKE LINE HOSE OUTSIDE THE WHEEL WELL. HOW COULD CHRYSLER BE ALLOWED TO SEND A FAULTY LIFE SAFETY DEVICE SUCH AS A THIS CRITICAL STEERING, SUSPENSION BALL JOINT THAT HUMAN LIFE DEPENDS ON INTO THE PUBLIC FOR SALE? I AM OUTRAGED THAT MY WIFE COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED BY CHRYSLER'S SLIPSHOD ENGINEERING AND PRODUCT PLACEMENT. THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT IF SHE HAD BEEN ON THE HIGHWAY TRAVELING AT A HIGH RATE OF SPEED I WOULD BE CALLING A FUNERAL PARLOR TODAY TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TODAY FOR HER BURIAL. SHE WAS MINUTES AWAY FROM TRAVELING TO A HIGHER RATE OF SPEED WHEN SHE LEFT THE SHOPPING CENTER. THANK GOD THE LIGHT TURNED RED. I HOPE SOMEONE AT NHTSA CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS TERRIBLE AND DANGEROUS LIFE THREATENING VEHICLE ON THE ROADWAYS FOR THE SAKE OF SEBRING OCCUPANTS AND OTHER VEHICLE OCCUPANT'S WHO ARE AT RISK OF DEATH IF NOTHING IS DONE TO CORRECT THE ISSUE OR BANISH THE VEHICLES ALTOGETHER FROM ROADWAYS. THREE SEBRINGS PASSED US WHILE WE WAITED FOR THE TOW TRUCK AND THOSE PEOPLE ARE AT THE SAME RISK OF DEATH BY DRIVING THOSE CARS. CHRYSLER SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CARELESS AND NEGLIGENT ACTIONS. AND, THEY SHOULD RECALL ALL OF THESE PRODUCTS TO PROVIDE A SAFE ALTERNATIVE AT NO COST. I AM OUT MENTAL ANGUISH AND PROPERTY. THEY KNOW THEIR BUSINESS AND THEY TAKE THE LIABILITY SO THEY SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE. IN AM VERY HAPPY MY WIFE DIDN'T GET KILLED. I HAVE ALL PICTURES OF THE ACCIDENT IF YOU NEED THEM. THANK YOU.
