WHILE DRIVING MY 2010 DODGE AVENGER, THE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE BODY WARNING LIGHT WILL FLASH ON AND THEN GO OFF, WHEN IT IS ON THE CAR DROPS SPEED QUICKLY AND WILL NOT EXCELLERATE. THIS HAS HAPPENED TO ME NUMEROUS TIMES OVER THE LAST MONTH. IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME ON MAJOR HIGHWAYS IN HEAVY TRAFFIC AND HAS ALMOST HAD ME GET HIT BY OTHER VEHICLES AS MY CAR DROPS SPEED WITH NO WARNING. THE LIGHT NEVER STAYS ON LONG ENOUGH TO PULL ANY CODES FROM IT. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS ISSUE AND THERE IS NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ONLINE ABOUT THE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE BODY'S BEING FAULTY THAT DODGE IS PUTTING IN 2008 - 2010 AVENGERS. I HAVE NOTIFIED DODGE OF MY ISSUE AND THEY BASICALLY TOLD ME THEY WERE SORRY FOR MY ISSUE AND THAT WAS IT. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE, AS SOMEONE CAN END BEING HIT BY ANOTHER VEHICLE WHEN THEIR CAR STALLS LIKE THIS WITH NO WARNING. THIS PART IS FAULTY AS PEOPLE HAVE HAD THEM REPLACED AND NOT EVEN 6 MONTHS LATER THEY HAVE HAD TO HAVE THEM REPLACED AGAIN, AS THE ONLY REPLACEMENT PART AVAILABLE IS FROM DODGE, WHICH SHOWS THE PARTS ARE FAULTY. ONCE THE CAR COMPLETELY STALLS OUT, IT LOSES POWER STEERING AND BRAKING CAPABILITIES WHICH IS GOING TO CAUSE AN ACCIDENT AND GET SOMEONE KILLED. PLEASE RECALL THIS PART ON THE CARS BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT OR KILLED, I DO NOT WANT IT TO BE ME OR ONE OF MY CHILDREN RIDING IN MY CAR THAT ENDS UP GETTING KILLED FROM AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT BECAUSE DODGE WAS NOT MADE TO RECALL THESE FAULTY PARTS ON THEIR AVENGERS. I PLAN ON PURSUING THIS ISSUE UNTIL THERE IS SOME SORT OF RESOLUTION FOR CUSTOMERS THAT HAVE THESE MODEL CARS FROM DODGE.

STEERING

11/5/2014 - LEONARDTOWN, MD
WHEN I GO TO BRAKE FROM SPEEDS OF 25 MPH AND UP, THE CAR STARTS SHAKING VIOLENTLY. I HAVE TO PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL SLOWLY AND HOLDS THE STEERING WHEEL STRONGER TO COUNTER THE SHAKING AND NOT LOSE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. THIS IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE TO DO WHEN BRAKING. THE FASTER THE VEHICLE IS GOING, THE WORSE IT SHAKE SWHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND SEVERAL OTHER CAR PLACES TO HAVE THE BRAKES CHECKED AND THEY CANNOT FIND THE PROBLEM. THEY'VE CHANGED PADS, ROTORS, ETC. ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME AND THE PROBLEM REMAINS. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND THERE SEEMS TO BE NO FIX.
