STEERING

11/9/2017 - HIGH ISLAND, TX
WHEN DRIVING OVER WATER OR A VERY WET ROAD MY POWER STEERING QUITS, I OFTEN GET "ALTERNATOR FAILURE" WARNING UNTIL SUCH TIME AS I PASS OVER THE POOLED WATER SPOT IN THE ROAD. I HAD THE ENGINE BELT CHANGED AND IT STILL DOES THIS WHEN DRIVING OVER A POOLED OR LOW SPOT IN A ROADWAY OR PARKING LOT. THIS HAPPENS WHEN DRIVING AT LOW OR HIGHER SPEEDS ON A HIGHWAY, STREET OR PARKING LOT AND/OR GRAVEL AREA WITH POOLED WATER BUT NOT IN A "FLOOD" SITUATION. THIS HAS BEEN ONGOING FOR OVER THREE MONTHS.

SEAT BELTS

10/27/2017 - SOMERSET, WI
I AM INFORMING YOU OF SOME VERY SERIOUS CONCERNS IN REGARDS TO PARTS OF THE 07 AND 08 CHEVY IMPALA THAT HAVE FAILED CAUSING ACCIDENTS AS WELL AS INJURY AND GRAVE POTENTIAL FOR FATALITIES.AIRBAGS NOT DEPLOYING, SEAT BELTS NOT LOCKING ON IMPACT FIRST AND FOREMOST I HAVE REQUESTED COPIES OF THE PAPERWORK THAT WAS SUBMITTED TO THE COURTS IN SOMERSET WI. THIS SHOWED EXACTLY WHAT TOOK PLACE CAUSEING AN ACCIDENT THAT WAS CONSIDERED NEGLIGENT DUE TO MEDICATIONS I WAS ON AND MY DISABILITY. THE MECHANIC GAVE ME THIS REPORT ALONG WITH INFO STATING THAT THIS WAS A HUGE PROBLEM IN FLEET POLICE VEHICALS. THE INFO STATED THAT THE POLICE VEHICALS WERE FIXED AND CHECKED HOWEVER THIS PART HAS NO RECALL OR REVISION TO CORRECT THE SAFETY ISSUES THAT WE CAN FIND. MY VEHICAL DOES HAVE HIGH MILLAGE HOWEVER IT HAS BEEN VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF THANKS TO ERICKSON OIL AND MECHANIC FRIENDS. THIS PART SNAPPING AFTER CRACKING ESILY RESULTED IN COMPLETE LOSS OF CONTROL AS WELL AS THE CAR LOCKING UP AND BECOMING IMPOSSIBLE TO STEER AND STOP. IT IS DISTURBING THAT THESE PARTS WERE NOT CORRECTED FROM A MANUFACTERING ASPECT (THIS WAS LOOKED AT BY A MACHINEST, AS WELL AS AN ENGINEER AND BY THE QAULITY/DIMESIONS/STRUCTURE THIS PART EASILY LOOKED DEFECTIVE) THE VISUAL AS WELL AS SKILLED APROACH TO PROBLEM SOLVING DROVE US TO LOOK UP RECALLS PRIOR TO BUYING A NEW PART. WE COULD NOT FIND ANY. JUST INFO THAT THIS EXACT MAKE AND MODEL WERE PURCHASED AS FLEET VEHICALS IN 07 AND 08. PROBLEMS WITH MANY OF THESE CARS RESULTED IN PULLING ALL OF THE FLEET/GOVNT PATROL CARS IN TO BE FIXED/INVESTIGATED. HOWEVER WE HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND A RECALL OR WARNING THAT SHOULD HAVE ALSO BEEN ISSUED TO THE PUBLIC. I AM CURRENTLY LOOKING INTO HELP TO INVESTIGATE AND HELP GET THIS LOOKED AT AS IT CAUSED AN ACCIDENT AS WELL AS BEING UNSTABLE AND FAULTY IN ANOTHER MINOR IMPACT ACCIDENT POTENTIAALY INCREASING FATALITY/INJURIES.
