ENGINE

3/2/2015 - WILMINGTON, DE
I JUST PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE 9 DAYS AGO AND TOOK IT THROUGH INSPECTIN TODAY. IT FAILED DUE TO THE CODES P0008,P0009,P0018,P0017,P0016 WHICH ARE THE TIMING CHAINS AND TWIN CAM POSITION SENSORS. THE REPAIR TO THE VEHICLE IS $1500.00 OR MORE DUE TO THE EXTENT OF THE PROCEDURE FOR THE REPAIR. I WAS TOLD THAT THIS EXPENSE IS MY COST EVEN THOUGH I ONLY HAD THE VEHICLE 9 DAYS. THIS IS AN ON GOING ISSUE I HAVE NOTICED WITH ALL THESE VEHICLES WITHIN THE YEAR OF 2007. SUZUKI TOLD ME THAT IT IS NOT IN THE MAN. WARRANTY ANYMORE DUE TO THE MILES. I REALLY NEED HELP THERE IS NOT EVEN A RECALL FOR THIS ISSUE.

THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON IN THE VEHICLE AND WHEN CHECKED BY THE DEALER, THE CAMS AND TIMING CHAIN ARE NOT IN TIMING. THE CAMS HAVE SHIFTED AND THE TIMING CHAIN MAY BE STRETCH. SEEMS TO BE A COMMON FAILURE TO ALL OF THESE VEHICLES AND THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL FOR THIS SITUATION. ALSO DUE TO THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT THE REMOTE START IS'NT WORKING EITHER.

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.

SEAT BELTS

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?
