FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

9/10/2015 - ENGLEWOOD, OH
AFTER REFUELING, VEHICLE STARTS UP AND DRIVES AS NORMAL FOR A SHORT TIME UNTIL REACHING THE FIRST STOP OR STOPLIGHT, AT WHICH POINT THE ENGINE RETURNS TO IDLE. THE ENGINE WILL BEGIN TO SPUTTER/WEAKEN (FULL FOOT ON THE GAS BUT REACTS AS IF IT IS ONLY DOWN 1/4 OF THE WAY), THE OIL LIGHT TURNS ON, AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY DIES WHILE STILL IN DRIVE. THIS HAS HAPPENED AT LEAST 5 TIMES SINCE THIS FIRST OCCURRED ON JAN. 31, 2015. EVERY TIME IT OCCURS, IT IS IMMEDIATELY AFTER REFUELING, DESPITE USING DIFFERENT GAS STATIONS AND BRANDS. FIRST EVEN OCCURRED WHILE I WAS TURNING LEFT FROM A LIGHT INTO ANOTHER PARKING LOT. (SPUTTER, THEN DIED) ANOTHER EVENT WAS WHILE I WAS IDLING AT A RED LIGHT. (ENGINE COMPLETELY DIED) THE MOST RECENT EVENT OCCURRED WHILE I WAS DRIVING 45 MPH DOWN THE ROAD, AND IT BEGAN TO SPUTTER AND WEAKEN AFTER THEN MAKING A RIGHT HAND TURN, UPON WHICH I PULLED THE CAR OVER IN THE ROAD, TURNED THE ENGINE OFF AND THEN BACK ON AGAIN. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS IF I HAD BEEN ON A HIGHWAY.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

9/7/2015 - SAN ANTONIO, TX
MY VEHICLE STARTED LOSING POWER INTERMITTENTLY. IT WOULD REMAIN RUNNING, BUT WOULD NOT RESPOND TO ACCELERATION AND THE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL LIGHT WOULD FLASH. AT FIRST, THIS WAS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM, SOLVED BY PULLING OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, TURNING THE CAR OFF AND RESTARTING IT. EVENTUALLY, THIS BECAME AN EVERYDAY OCCURRENCE, UNTIL EVENTUALLY, THE CAR WOULD NOT EVEN START DUE TO THIS PROBLEM. I HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP, AND THEY REPLACED THE THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY, WHICH SOLVED THE PROBLEM. I HAVE NOTICED SEVERAL RECALLS FOR THIS EXACT PROBLEM FOR MY YEAR AND MAKE AND MODEL, BUT THE DATABASE STATES THAT MY VIN NUMBER WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE, AS I HAVE HAD TO PULL OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD SEVERAL TIMES IN FAST-MOVING TRAFFIC ON NARROW SHOULDERS.

POWER TRAIN

9/2/2015 - SAN PEDRO, CA
THE CAR LOST POWER WHILE DRIVING DOWN VERMONT IN TORRANCE EVEN THOUGH THE ENGINE WAS ON. I HAD TO PULL OVER TO THE CURB. EARLIER THAT WEEK ON SUNDAY AUG 26, 2015 I HAD TO HAVE MY BATTERY JUMPED BY AAA. INSTEAD OF DRIVING AROUND I LET THE CAR RUN FOR HALF AN HOUR. I REVVED THE ENGINE AND THE RPM STOPPED WORKING ALTHOUGH THE ENGINE WAS STILL ON. I STARTED THE CAR THE NEXT DAY AND IT HAD CLUNKING SOUNDS WHILE DRIVING AT LOWER SPEEDS WHICH DISAPPEARED UPON DRIVING FREEWAY SPEEDS. UPON TRYING TO PARK THE CAR AT WORK IT JERKED WHILE IN REVERSE. I DROVE THE CAR THE NEXT FEW DAYS UNTIL IT FAILED ON AUG 31ST WHILE DRIVING HOME ON VERMONT. THE CAR HAD TO BE TOWED TO THE SCOTT ROBINSON CHRYSLER DODGE JEEP DEALERSHIP IN TORRANCE, CA. TESTING THERE REVEALED THE CAR NEEDED A WHOLE NEW TRANSMISSION AT ONLY 70,000 MILES. THEY SAID IT WAS NOT DUE TO ANY FAULT OF MINE. I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO A AAA APPROVED REPAIR FACILITY TO GET A SECOND OPINION AND AM WAITING TO SEE IF THE CAR REPAIRS WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM. IT'S FORTUNATE THE CAR DIDN'T FAIL ON THE FREEWAY.
