12/2/2014 - PORT CHARLOTTE, FL
I WAS DRIVING IN VERNON BC AND COMING TO A STOP LIGHT WHEN THE ENGINE QUIT. I HAD TO STOP PUT CAR IN PARK AND RESTART. THE PROBLEM OCCURED IN A PARKING LOT ABOUT TEN MINUTES LATER. I CALLED THE DEALER AND THEY SAID IF NO ENGINE LIGHT ON THERE WAS NOTHING THAT COULD BE DONE. I DROVE FOR OVER 2000 MILES AND THE FUEL PUMP BECAME NOISY AND THAT WAS CHANGED. ALL WAS WELL UNTIL DEC.1 2014 WHEN DRIVING IN FLORIDA THE CAR STALLED WHILE SLOWING FOR A STOP LIGHT. PUT IN PARK AND STARTED AGAIN. CALLED DEALER AND THEY CAN'T HELP. THE ONLY OTHER THING WAS THE TEMPERATURE WAS ABOUT 85 F ALL THREE TIMES.

THE CAR HAD SEEMED A BIT "SLUGGISH" OR "DRAGGY" BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS POSSIBLY FROM THE COLD WEATHER. AFTER ABOUT TWO DAYS OF THIS, WE WERE TRAVELING OUT OF TOWN FOR THANKSGIVING. AT A STOPLIGHT, AS I WAS SLOWING TO A STOP, MY CAR JUST DIED. THE RADIO AND HEAT WENT OFF AND THE CAR JUST COASTED TO A STOP. I PUT THE CAR IN PARK TO START IT BUT JUST GOT AN AWFUL GRINDING SOUND. I TRIED AGAIN AND IT STARTED BUT WAS VERY JERKY. I THOUGHT MAYBE I GOT SOME BAD GAS AS IT HAPPENED AGAIN THAT DAY. THE NEXT DAY I ADDED SOME DRYGAS AND FILLED THE TANK WITH A BETTER GRADE GAS. IT BEHAVED FOR TWO DAYS BUT IT HAPPENED AGAIN TODAY ALTHOUGH I ONLY SLOWED DOWN TO GET OFF OF A HIGHWAY WHEN IT DID IT. LUCKILY IT WAS EARLY ON SUNDAY WITH VERY LITTLE TRAFFIC OR IT COULD HAVE BEEN BAD. IS THIS GOING TO BE ANOTHER GM SWEEP UNDER THE RUG UNTIL ENOUGH PEOPLE DIE AGAIN OR WHAT?

IMPACTED ROAD HAZARD THAT SEVERELY DAMAGED THE PASSENGER SIDE TIRES AND WHEELS REQUIRING FULL REPLACEMENT. HAD A SECOND INCIDENT AND REPLACED A THIRD TIRE ON THE SAME SIDE THE FOLLOWING MONTH. HAVE SPOKEN TO OTHERS WHO EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM WITH "LOW PROFILE TIRES" WHICH WOULD BE A DESIGN APPLICATION BY THE OEM'S THAT IN MY OPINION SHOULD BE CONSIDERED DANGEROUS TO THE CONSUMER. THE LOW PROFILE TIRE BY DESIGN CANNOT WITHSTAND EVEN THE SMALLEST ROAD HAZARD AND AT HIGH SPEEDS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BE LIFE THREATENING TO CONSUMERS. I BELIEVE THEY SHOULD BE RECALLED.
