ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

9/16/2014 - HARRINGTON, DE
CAR DASH LIGHTS WOULD ALL LIGHT UP , (ALL INDICATION LIGHTS) THEN THE CAR WOULD SHUT OFF COMPLETELY WHILE DRIVING ALL POWER WOULD GO OFF. THE CAR WON;T RESTART FOR SEVERAL MINUTES. THE PROBLEM HAS GOTTEN WORSE, NOW ON ROUTE ONE HIGHWAY AT THE RATE OF SPEED 65 MILES AN HOUR THE CAR SHUT OFF , AVOIDED A ACCIDENT WITH A TRACTOR TRAILER, NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS CANNOT HELP ME.

9/11/2014 - YOUNGSTOWN , OH
IN JAN14 MY CAR WOULDN'T START, TOOK TO THE DEALER. APRIL11 IT TOOK IT BACK TO DEALER BECAUSE IT TOOK 4 TIMES TO START THE CAR. WHEN STARTED, WHILE DRIVING THE ELEC PANEL LIGHTS WLD RANDOMLY FLICKER, ENG LIGHT OFTEN. JUL14 CAR BACK AT DEALER, ALL PANEL LIGHTS WLD FLICKER WHILE DRIVING, CAR WLD ACCELERATE WHILE DRIVING AND SOUNDING LIKE IN WRONG GEAR AT 35MPH, DIDN'T GET CAR BACK UNTIL AUG08. ONE HOUR LATER, RETURNED CAR TO DEALER CAR STILL ACCELERATED WHILE TRYING TO STOP AT A FOUR WAY INTERSECTION. GOT CAR BACK 2 DAYS LATER. CAR ACCELERATED ON AUG28, CUT OFF WHILE DRIVING 30MPH, DASH LIT UP, GAS GAUGE WENT FULL TO EMPTY, CAR LAUNCHED FORWARD AND THEN STARTED ON ITS OWN AGAIN, THIS HAPPENED TWICE. TOOK CAR TO DEALER ON AUG29 AND STILL HAVE NO CAR!!!! TODAY IS SEPT 11TH. EACH TIME THE DEALER WOULD STATE NOTHING IS WRONG AND NO SIGNS OF ANYTHING. THEY WOULD NOT LISTEN NOR RECORD ANYTHING I TOLD THEM ON THE PAPERWORK, THEY CONTINUED TO IGNORE EVERYTHING I SAID. I HAVE PAID A LOT OF MONEY TO GET THE CAR FIXED AND IT WAS NOT UNTIL THIS LAST TIME THAT I FINALLY GOT A LOANER TO DRIVE (TWO DOOR FIAT). A CASE MANAGER FROM AUBURN HILL, MI AT THE HEADQUARTERS HAS CONTACTED ME, BUT STILL NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE!!!!!!!!!!! NOW THE DEALER WANTS ME TO TEST DRIVE THE CAR WITH THEM, THOUGH I TOLD THEM THAT IT RANDOMLY HAPPENS. THEY CONTINUOUSLY ACT LIKE THERE IS NO PROBLEM, THOUGH I HAVE FOUND NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ONLINE REGARDING THE SAME THING. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ASAP BEFORE PEOPLE GET SERIOUSLY INJURED AND/OR LIVES LOST. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT CAN NOT BE SWEPT UNDER THE RUG. AS A RETIRED ASSEMBLY LINE WORKER OF CAR PARTS I FIND IT INTERESTING HOW MY CASE AND OTHERS HAVE BEEN HANDLED. THE LACK OF CONCERN, ACCOUNTABILITY, FOLLOW THROUGH AND RESOLUTION IS DONE POORLY.

SERVICE BRAKES

8/12/2014 - NEWCASTLE, CA
DRIVING VEHICLE, ALL DASHBOARD LIGHTS BLINK ON AND OFF, CARS STALLS, BRAKES AND STEERING LOCK UP. THIS HAS HAPPENED AT LEAST 15 TIMES OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS, AND IS VERY DANGEROUS. ALSO, SOMETIMES THE ENGINE FAN WON'T SHUT OFF WHEN CAR IS TURNED OFF, AND IT DRAINS THE CAR BATTERY. THIS HAS HAPPENED AT LEAST 10 TIMES. THAT PART IS GETTING EXPENSIVE AND VERY IRRITATING, BUT THE STALLING OUT AND COMPLETELY DYING, IS VERY DANGEROUS, BECAUSE YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET OFF THE ROAD.
