FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

5/3/2016 - ROULETTE, PA
DRIVING MY CAR AT ABOUT 25MPH STARTED TO HEAR A RATTLE IN IT. WHEN WENT TO ACCELERATE THE CAR STARTED TO SMOKE AND HAD NO POWER. WHEN IDLING YOU COULD HEAR THE MOTOR "WORK" AND IT HAD A JUMP IN IT. ONLY HAS 50,000 MILES AND HAS NEVER BEEN DRIVEN HARD. OF COURSE IT'S OUT OF WARRANTY NOW AND I HAVE NO CLUE WHY IT WOULDN'T ACCELERATE AND STARTED SMOKING. THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND WAS STILL ON WHEN I LEFT MY CAR SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.

THE CONTACT OWNS A 2012 CHEVROLET CRUZE. WHILE DRIVING 30 MPH DEPRESSING THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL, THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. THE VEHICLE SPUTTERED AND STALLED, AND THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT ILLUMINATED.

STEERING

4/8/2016 - HUMBLE, TX
ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS MY VEHICLE HAS LOST POWER STEERING SERVICE. I HAVE ALMOST CRASHED INTO A METRO RAIL AND INTO ANOTHER VEHICLE BECAUSE I AM UNABLE TO TURN MY WHEEL. ON ANOTHER OCCASION, I WAS ABOUT TO PARK AND THE CAR TURNED OFF ON ME; THE KEY WAS LOCKED INTO THE IGNITION AND I COULDN'T TURN IT, THE DOORS LOCKED AND NOTHING WORKED. I WAS STUCK INSIDE UNTIL AFTER ABOUT 5 MINUTES, THE CAR UNLOCKED EVERYTHING AND THE ECU TURNED BACK ON. I'VE HAD TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALERSHIP TWICE FOR THIS PROBLEM AND THEY HAVE TOLD ME IT'S COVERED UNDER A "SPECIAL SERVICE" BUT THESE INCIDENTS HAPPENED ALMOST A YEAR APART. I DO NOT BELIEVE THE CAR IS FIXED. ALSO, THE SERVICE STABILITRAK AND OTHER LIGHTS FLASH ON AND OFF AND SO DO MY RADIO.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

4/7/2016 - LEICESTER, NC
CAR SUDDENLY SHIFTED INTO 4TH GEAR WHILE GOING 70 MPH. SQUALLED LEFT FRONT TIRE, AND VIOLENTLY SNATCHED STEERING WHEEL TO THE LEFT. AFTER SHUTTING CAR OFF, THE PROBLEM WAS GONE. SHORTLY AFTER, STABILITRACK, AND STEERING ALARM APPEARED ON MESSAGE DISPLAY. THAT CLEARED ONCE SHUT-OFF. THREE WEEKS LATER IT OCCURRED AGAIN. THIS TIME, ON A TRIP, IT DID THE EXACT SAME PROBLEMS FOUR TIMES IN A ROW. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS PROBLEM. IF I HAD NOT HAD A FIRM GRIP ON THE WHEEL, I WOULD HAVE BEEN HURT. I PITY THE FOOL WHO TAILGATES ME! I TOOK THE CAR TO THE LOCAL DEALER, AND HAD THE CALIFORNIA FLASH "RECALL" DONE. SENSE THAT THE TRANSMISSION HAS NOT SHIFTED DOWN WHILE AT HIGH SPEEDS, BUT NOW, THE STABILITRACK, AND ABS LIGHTS ARE STAYING ON.
