ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

2/24/2015 - MOUNT JLIET, TN
THE CLOCKSPRING IN THE STEERING WHEEL WENT OUT. AT 28 MILES THE TRACTION CONTROL TURNS ON AND THE CAR STARTS BRAKING EVEN IF THE CAR IS NOT SKIDDING. VERY DANGEROUS. OUR MECHANIC TOLD US THE CLOCKSPRING IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH BOTH THE VOLKSWAGEN ROUTON AND THE CHRYSLER TOWN AND COUNTRY. I FOUND ONE REPORT ON THE INTERNET THAT SAID VOLKSWAGEN STARTED SERVICING THE CLOCKSPRING AS OF 2010 ROUTON MODELS BUT DID NOTHING FOR THE 2009 ROUTON.

ALL WARNING/SERVICE LIGHTS ON THE DASH PANEL LIGHT UP, SOUND ALARMS, AND BLINK. THE SPEEDOMETER, FUEL GAUGE, TACHOMETER ALL GO TO "0" SO I AM UNAWARE OF MY SPEED. BLINKERS AND EMERGENCY FLASHERS DO NOT WORK. THIS FIRST HAPPENED RIGHT AFTER WE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE, AND THEY REPAIRED SOMETHING TO WHERE IT WORKED FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS. THEN IT HAS BEEN HAPPENING MORE FREQUENTLY SINCE THEN. THE LIGHTS ALL TURNING ON WILL HAPPEN ABOUT ONCE A WEEK NOW. I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAID IT'S PROBABLY RELATED TO THE RECALL CURRENTLY IN PLACE FOR MY VEHICLE, THAT THEY DON'T HAVE A FIX FOR. OF WHICH, MY CAR HAS BEEN EFFECTED BY THE IGNITION SWITCH RECALL AS MY CAR HAS TURNED OFF AT RANDOM TIMES GOING 35+ MPH. THIS RECALL HAS BEEN IN EFFECT SINCE JULY 2014 AND THERE IS NOT YET A REMEDY. I HAVE 3 YOUNG KIDS THAT I HAVE WITH ME ALL OF THE TIME AND I AM AFRAID TO DRIVING ON THE HWY SINCE THIS OFTEN HAPPENS AT THOSE TIMES.
