WHEELS

10/29/2012 - ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL
WHEN I FIRST PURCHASED THE CAR, I NOTICE THAT I HAD TO FILL UP THE GAS EVERY WEEK. AFTER A WHILE THE LOW AIR NOTIFICATION CAME ON. BASICALLY I FIND MYSELF ADDING AIR TO THE TIRES ONCE EVERY FEW WEEKS. SINCE I'VE DONE THAT I NOTICED I HAVE A LITTLE BETTER GAS MILEAGE. BUT I WANTED TO KNOW AM I ALONE WITH THE FAULTY TIRES OR ARE THEY LEAKING AND WHAT SHOULD I DO. DO I GO BACK TO THE DEALER? THEY ARE GOODYEAR BRAND OF TIRES.

THIS IS THE SECOND INCIDENT THAT I HAVE HAD WITH THIS CAR. THE FIRST INCIDENT WAS VERY SIMILAR. THIS TIME I WAS COMING BACK FROM ARIZONA INTO CALIFORNIA AND I WAS ON THE 15 SOUTH BETWEEN BARSTOW AND VICTORVILLE. I WAS TRAVELING AT APPROXIMATELY 70 MPH IN THE LEFT LANE. THE CRUISE CONTROL WAS PREVIOUSLY, BUT HAD BEEN CANCELLED AND I HAD TRAVELED APPR. 10 MILES AFTER CANCELING IT. WITHOUT WARNING THE THROTTLE REVVED AND BECAME UNRESPONSIVE. THE CAR STALLED AND I WAS UNABLE TO GET TO THE RIGHT SHOULDER. I PULLED OVER TO THE LEFT SHOULDER. THE FUEL GAUGE READ HALFWAY BETWEEN 1/4 AND 1/2. THE ENGINE WOULD NOT RESTART. I CALLED ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE AND HAD THE CAR TOWED TO THE DEALER IN VICTORVILLE. WHEN THE CAR WAS TAKEN OFF THE TOW TRUCK, I WAS ABLE TO START IT AGAIN. I DROVE HOME THE REST OF THE WAY. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP 2 WEEKS AFTER THIS INCIDENT TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT. THE CAR HAD NOT BEEN DRIVEN AT ALL SINCE THE INCIDENT. THE DEALER RAN DIAGNOSTIC TESTS AND CONCLUDED THE ISSUE WAS WITH THE TRANSMISSION OVERHEATING DUE TO MUD. I WAS ADVISED THE TRANSMISSION WAS DESIGNED TO SHUT OFF IF IT GOT TOO HOT WITH LITTLE TO NO WARNING. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED WITH THIS VEHICLE AND I HAVE NOT OBSERVED ANY WARNING LIGHT ON THE DASHBOARD BEFORE THE ENGINE CUTS OFF.
