ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

10/24/2014 - MAIZE, KS
DRIVING ON A BUSY STREET, TURNED DOWN A RESIDENTIAL STREET AND THE STEERING WHEEL STARTED SHAKING VIOLENTLY. WE HAVE OWN THE CAR SINCE JUNE, 2013 AND THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING PROBLEM. THE WILL BE A BEEP ,THEN THE EPS AND TRACTION CONTROL WILL SHOW ON THE DASH BOARD AND THEN THE STEERING WHEEL WILL START TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY. MY HUSBAND SHUT OFF THE VEHICLE AND IT VIOLENTLY SHAKE FOR 20 MINS. AT TIMES WHEN THIS PROBLEM OCCURRED IN THE PAST THE CAR WOULD BE ON BUT WE DID NOT EVEN LEAVE THE DRIVE WAY. THE FIRS TIME IT DID IT ME WAS 4 MONTHS AFTER PURCHASING THE VEHICLE AND I HAD MY CHILD IN THE BACK SEAT TAKING HER TO SCHOOL WHEN THE STEERING WHEEL STARTED SHAKING VIOLENTLY, I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY INTERSECTION AND I COULDNT GET OUT BECAUSE I WAS NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO HANDLE THE STEERING WHEEL, AND WE ALMOST GOT HIT. EACH TIME (MORE THAN 5 TIMES NOW) WE WERE EITHER STOPPED OR GOING LESS THAN 25 MILES PER HOUR, THE EPS AND TRACTION WILL LIGHT, AND THE STEERING WHEEL WILL SHAKE VIOLENTLY ANYWHERE FROM 5 MINUTES TO 45 MINUTES. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN MY HUSBAND WAS DRIVING IN OUR SMALL TOWN WHEN THE EPS LIGHT WAS ON BUT MY HUSBAND HAD NO POWER STEERING. THE STEERING WHEEL DIDNT SHAKE.

EXTERIOR LIGHTING

10/22/2014 - HOUSTON , TX
WHILE I WAS DRIVING, AT ABOUT 40 MPH, ANOTHER DRIVER FLAG ME DOWN AND ASKED ME TO CHECK MY TAILLIGHT. I PARKED MY CAR ON THE SIDE, AND I NOTICED THAT THE WHOLE TAILLIGHT HAD FALLEN OFF THE CAR. IT WAS JUST HANGING FROM THE WIRES. UPON INSPECTION I NOTICED THAT THE PLASTIC STUDS HOLDING THE TAILLIGHT HAD BROKEN OFF. LOTS OF SMALL PLASTIC PIECES ALL OVER. GLAD I WASN'T ON THE FREEWAY, BECAUSE IT WOULD HAD CAUSED AN ACCIDENT IF IT WOULD HAD FALLEN OFF THE CAR. THE TAILLIGHT SHOWS NO SIGNS OF ANY IMPACT AT ALL IT IS CLEAN.
