THE LIFT GATE STRUTS THAT SUPPORT THE REAR DOOR FAILED WITH OUT ANY INDICATION THEY WERE GETTING WEAK. THEY WERE WORKING FINE EARLIER IN THE DAY. BUT WHEN I TRIED TO OPEN THE HATCH IN THE EVENING IT WAS VERY HEAVY AN WOULD NOT STAY OPEN, UNTIL I SUPPORTED IT WITH A MAKE SHIFT POLE. I REPLACED THE STRUTS WITH AN AFTER MARKET VERSION, BUT WONDER IF OTHER OWNERS HAVE HAD SIMILAR FAILURES, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE HATCH WAS OPEN.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

4/30/2014 - TALLMADGE, OH
UNINTENDED ACCELERATION HAS OCCURRED SIX (6) TIMES SINCE THE CAR WAS PURCHASED NEW. THE FIRST THREE INCIDENCES TOOK PLACE OVER A FOUR (4) YEAR PERIOD STARTING ABOUT 2009 WITH ABOUT 25000 MILES ON THE ODOMETER. IN EACH OF THESE INSTANCES THE CAR WAS ENTERING A PARKING SPACE MOVING FORWARD. THE BRAKE PEDAL WAS APPLIED AND THE CAR WAS ALMOST STOPPED WHEN THE ENGINE BEGIN TO RACE. PRESSURE WAS MAINTAINED ON THE BRAKE AND THE ENGINE SPEED RETURNED TO NORMAL. THE CAR WAS RETURNED TO THE DEALER FOR INSPECTION AFTER THE FIRST TWO (2) OF THESE INCIDENCES BUT COULD NOT FIND THE PROBLEM. IN THE LAST TWO YEARS THERE HAVE BEEN THREE ADDITIONAL OCCURRENCES. IN ONE INSTANCE THE BRAKE WAS APPLIED AND THE CAR WAS AT A COMPLETE STOP AT A TRAFFIC CIRCLE. ALTHOUGH THE DRIVER?S FOOT REMAINED FIRMLY ON THE BRAKE, THE ENGINE BEGAN TO REV UP. THE TRANSMISSION HAD TO BE PLACED IN NEUTRAL TO PREVENT THE CAR MOVING FORWARD INTO TRAFFIC. ON TWO OTHER OCCASIONS THE BRAKE WAS APPLIED TO SLOW THE CAR DOWN IN TRAFFIC WHEN THE ENGINE?S RPM INCREASE RAPIDLY. TO PREVENT A POSSIBLE COLLISION THE TRANSMISSION AGAIN HAD TO BE PLACED IN NEUTRAL. ALTHOUGH THE PROBLEM DOES NOT OCCUR FREQUENTLY WHEN IT DOES OCCUR, THERE IS A SAFETY ISSUE.

THE LIFTGATE STRUTS FAILED SUDDENLY AND NO LONGER SUPPORT THE HEAVY DOOR. THERE WAS NO GRADUAL DETERIORATION. OURS IS A MANUAL VERSION - NOT POWERED AND FOR SOME REASON ISN'T COVERED BY THE RECALL 12V062000, EVEN THOUGH IT USES THE SAME PART THAT WAS DETERMINED TO BE DEFECTIVE IN THAT INVESTIGATION - NHTSA ACTION NUMBER : PE11034. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT IT FAILED AT UNACCEPTABLE RATE AND THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS FROM MANUAL LIFTGATES IS HIGHER THAN THOSE OF THE POWERED LIFTGATES. THIS IS AT LEAST AS DANGEROUS AS A POWERED LIFTGATE SITUATION, ESPECIALLY FOR MY WIFE AND 3 YOUNG CHILDREN. THE INVESTIGATION AND RECALL NEEDS TO BE EXPANDED TO COVER ALL MODELS USING THIS PART, NOT JUST THE POWERED DOORS.
