FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

1/10/2015 - CLARKSVILLE , TN
I WAS ON MY WAY TO WORK ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND MY TRUCK STARTED JERKING AND LOOSING POWER. SO I HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO THE PLACE THAT I'M FINANCING IT FROM THEIR MECHANIC CHECKED IT OUT AND TOLD ME IT WAS THE BATTERY.SO I BOUGHT A BATTERY. IT RAN GOOD SO I DECIDED TO TAKE IT A LITTLE BIT FURTHER AND IT DONE THE SAME THING SO I TOOK IT BACK TO THEM AGAIN YESTERDAY THEY TELL ME THAT THEY ARE BUSY AND THEY CAN'T GET TO IT UNTIL TODAY. I'VE MISSED 3 DAYS OF WORK BECAUSE OF THEIR FALSE ANSWERS.I DON'T WANT TO BE STRANDED ON THE ROAD OR FOR MY TRUCK TO CATCH ON FIRE BECAUSE THEY CAN'T GET IT FIXED LIKE THEY SUPPOSE TO IF I CAN'T GET TO WORK THEY CAN'T GET PAID AND THEY WILL BE READY TO REPO IT.

SEATS

1/3/2015 - AUBURN, ME
THE AIRBAG WOULD NOT TURN ON REGARDLESS OF THE WEIGHT IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. WHEN INQUIRED WITH DEALER, WE WERE TOLD THERE WASN'T ENOUGH WEIGHT EVEN THOUGH IT RANGED FROM 120- 250. THEN THE AIR BAG IDICATOR CAME ON AND THE AIR BAG ON/OFF PASSENGER LIGHT IS ALWAYS ON OFF, THE AIRBAG ON/OFF LIGHT NEVER GOES ON. NOW THE DEALER IS TELLING US WE NEED TO REPLACE THE PAD IN THE PASSENGER SEAT...PROBABLY, THEY CAN'T BE CERTAIN UNTIL IT'S BEEN CHANGED AT A FEE OF $800. THIS SEEMS TO BE A CONSTANT ISSUE FOR THIS VEHICLE AND THE PLANT THAT IT WAS MADE IN. THE XL7 AND OTHER GM CARS WITH SAME BODY FRAME HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM EXCEPT THE XL7 IS NOT BEING RECALLED. WHY NOT? I FEAR IT'S BECAUSE THE XL7 HAS HAD A SMALLER PRODUCTION THAN OTHER GM CARS AND NOW WITH SUZUKI NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION, WE OWNERS HAVE NO ONE TO INVESTIGATE AND INITIATE A RECALL - ISN'T THIS WHERE/WHEN THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE STEPPING UP? THIS CANNOT BE MEETING MANDATORY SAFETY STANDARDS. MY RESEARCH SHOWS THESE VEHICLES WERE EFFECTED IN ADDITION TO THE XL7:GMC/ACADIA 2007, SATURN/OUTLOOK 2007 MANUFACTURER: GENERAL MOTORS CORP. NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER: 07V062000 MFG'S REPORT DATE: FEBRUARY 21, 2007 COMPONENT: AIR BAGS: FRONTAL: SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE SUMMARY: ON CERTAIN VEHICLES, THE SENSING AND DIAGNOSTIC MODULE (SDM), WHICH CONTROLS THE FUNCTION OF FRONT AIR BAGS, MAY NOT OPERATE PROPERLY. AS A RESULT, THE FRONT AIR BAGS MAY FAIL TO DEPLOY IN A FRONTAL CRASH. ALSO, THE AIR BAG WARNING LAMP ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL MAY FAIL TO PROVIDE WARNING THAT THE SYSTEM IS INOPERATIVE. CONSEQUENCE: N THE EVENT OF A CRASH, THIS CONDITION COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTS IN THE FRONT SEAT. REMEDY: DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE SDM COMPUTER MODULE. WHY IS THE XL7 NOT INCLUDED IN THIS RECALL/ REPAIR/ REPROGRAM?

MY VEHICLE HAD THE INITIAL ISSUE OF THE GAS LEAK ONE WEEK AFTER PURCHASE. MY HEAT STOPPED WORKING IN 2010 AND NOW WHEN THE CAR IS STOPPED FOR GAS, IT WON'T RESTART NORMALLY, HAVE TO TWIST THE KEY IN THE IGNITION SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE THE VEHICLE STARTS. THE ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON AND NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW HOW TO GET IT OFF MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO GET MY CAR INSPECTED. ANY RECALLS THAT WOULD EXPLAIN ANY OF THESE ISSUES?

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

11/18/2014 - LAND O LAKES , FL
IT IS A SHAME THIS VEHICLE HAS NOT BEEN RECALLED FOR ANY OF THE PROBLEMS WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED. 1. STEERING WHEEL IS DIFFICULT TO TURN AT SLOW SPEEDS AND MAKES LOUD RUBBING NOISE. 2. DOOR LOCKS WILL NOT UNLOCK USING KEY FOB. HAVE TO MANUALLY UNLOCK BY HAND FROM THE INSIDE. I CONSIDER THIS A DANGER. 3. VEHICLE WILL NOT MAINTAIN ONE SPEED ON ITS OWN. EVEN WITH CRUISE CONTROL, THE CAR'S POWER DECREASES. I AM PETRIFIED TO PULL OUT IN TRAFFIC WITH THIS CAR. 4. SUNROOF LEAKED ALL OVER INTO THE INTERIOR ELECTRIC DUE TO IMPROPER INSTALLATION FROM THE FACTORY. 5. TURN SIGNAL SWITCH DOES NOT WORK. 6. HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY. CAN ONLY ADJUST TEMP IF YOU SET IT ON WINDSHIELD DEFROST MODE. 7. REAR END HAS STRANGE BANG COMING FROM IT. DEALER CAN'T DETERMINE ANY PROBLEM.
