POWER TRAIN

12/1/2017 - PITTSBURGH, PA
INHIBITOR OR RANGE SWITCH WHEN ATTEMPTING TO START THE CAR IT ONLY MAKES A SINGLE CLICK AND THE DISPLAY DOES NOT ALWAYS SHOW THAT THE CAR IS IN PARK. SOMETIMES SHIFTING INTO NEUTRAL ALLOWS FOR A START. SOMETIMES WIGGLING GEAR SHIFT WHILE IN PARK ALLOWS FOR A START. SOMETIMES IT JUST DOESN'T WANT TO START. MECHANIC WON'T REPLACE ANY PART IF THEY CAN'T REPLICATE THE PROBLEM. I'VE SEEN A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ISSUE FOR THIS VEHICLE (2012) AS WELL AS THE 2011 AND 2013 MODELS. THIS CAN SERIOUSLY CAUSE PEOPLE TO BECOME STRANDED!!!

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

11/24/2017 - DUXBURY, MA
THIS IS A PUSHBUTTON START VEHICLE. INTERMITTENTLY, WHEN THE BUTTON IS PUSHED, THE CAR WON'T START. THIS OCCURS WITH A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY, FOOT DEPRESSED ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, ETC. THIS IS APPARENTLY A VERY COMMON PROBLEM, ALTHOUGH MY LOCAL DEALER PROFESSED TO NEVER HAVE HEARD OF IT. CONSENSUS ONLINE IS THAT IT IS A FAULTY "RANGE SWITCH", RESULTING IN A FAILURE OF THE VEHICLE TO SENSE THAT IT IS IN PARK. DEALERS CLAIM THAT THEY "CAN'T REPLICATE THE PROBLEM", AND SO CAN'T FIX IT.
