FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

7/8/2016 - CEDAR PARK, TX
THIS IS MY SECOND COMPLAINT TO BE FILED. THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING PROBLEM SINCE 2013. MY 2007 SUBARU OUTBACK LOSES VEHICLE POWER AS THE ACCELERATOR STOPS RESPONDING. THE CRUISE CONTROL, TRACTION, AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ALL BECOME ILLUMINATED OR FLASHING. THIS IS ESPECIALLY COMMON UPON RESTARTING THE CAR AFTER A SHORT DRIVE, COMING TO A STOP, OR AFTER 5-10 MINUTES FROM A COLD START. RESTARTING THE VEHICLE UNTIL THE VEHICLE WILL NOT RESTART AND THEN RESTARTING ONCE MORE RESETS THE ISSUE FOR APPROXIMATELY 24 HOURS. CLEANING THE CONNECTOR PLUG TO THE ACCELERATOR TEMPORARILY RESOLVES THE ISSUE ANYWHERE FORM 6 MONTHS TO ONE WEEK. SUBARU HAS BEEN CONTACTED AND ISSUED A GENERIC RESPONSE MOSTLY DEALING WITH AIR BAG SAFETY CONCERNS. THIS IS A VERY HAZARDOUS DEFAULT IN THE VEHICLE WHICH IS BEING IGNORED.

TAKATA RECALL -- WHEN WILL PARTS BE AVAILABLE TO FIX MY CAR'S FAULTY, RECALLED AIRBAG? THIS IS CREATING A GREAT DEAL OF STRESS, INCONVENIENCE, AND HAZARD FOR MY FAMILY. A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME HAS PASSED AND TAKATA HAS NOT RECTIFIED THIS SITUATION. MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE ON THE ROADS WITH DEADLY AIRBAGS. HOW WILL THIS NOT BE PERCEIVED AS A REGULATORY FAILURE?

TAKATA RECALL. I RECEIVED THE RECALL NOTICE FROM SUBARU OF AMERICA ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO. NOTICE SAID THAT PARTS WERE IN SHORT SUPPLY, BUT THEY WOULD CONTACT ME. I WAITED TWO MONTHS. HEARD NOTHING. CALLED FITZGERALD SUBARU, ROCKVILLE, MD. DEALER ON APRIL 14, 2016. SERVICE DEPT. SAYS THAT THERE IS A FURTHER APPROXIMATELY THREE MONTH WAIT. WHAT IS THE POINT OF A RECALL IF YOU CAN'T FIX THE PROBLEM WITHIN 5 MONTHS? WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO KEEP SUBARU'S FEET TO THE FIRE? THEY ARE EFFECTIVELY FAILING TO COMPLY WITH YOUR RECALL ORDER. MAYBE A $1 MILLION FINE PER DAY WOULD GET THEM MOVING?
