5/11/2018 - JEFFERSON, OR
THE ROAD I WAS DRIVING ON IS 55 MPH ON BEAR IN. AS I BEGAN TO BREAK NOTHING HAPPENED. A 90¦ CORNER WAS IN FRONT OF ME. 55TH AVE. I PUSHED AS HARD AS I COULD ON THE BREAKS. IT WAS SMOOTH.. TRACTION CONTROL WAS ON. NO BREAKING UNIT WENT INTO AFFECT. IT WAS SMOOTH ALL THE WAY INTO A TREE HEAD ON. ZERO SKID MARKS! I WAS CONSCIOUS THE ENTIRE TIME CLOSED ON EYES RIGHT BEFORE IMPACT. AIR BAGS DID WORK. THE ENGINE STARTED ON FIRE 3X. THEY HAD TO USE THE JAWS OF LIFE TO REMOVE THE VEHICLE FROM THE TREE. I PUSHED SO HARD ON THE BREAK THAT IT BROKE MY ANKLE, SPLIT MY KNEE OPEN AND SPRAINED MY KNEE. I WAS TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. MILEAGE ON THE VEHICLE WAS ABOUT 56K. THIS SHOULD HAVE KILLED ME. THE BREAKS HAD WORKED FINE BEFORE THIS.. NO SQUEALING, SHAKING ETC. IN GOOD WORKING ORDER. CONDITIONS WERE DARK, DRY ROADS, NO WIND. I DO HAVE REPORTS BUT CAN NOT SCAN THEM. I LOADED 5 IMAGES! PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS MATTER IMMEDIATELY. LIVES ARE AT STAKE.

STEERING ISSUES: WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR THEY HAD TO DO SOMETHING WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM BECAUSE CAR WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING THE DAY AFTER I BROUGHT IT HOME FROM THE DEALER. THIS PROBLEM IS WITH MY STEERING. WHICH HAPPENED AFTER THEY SERVICE MY CARS AIRBAG IN MY STEERING WHEEL. IT WAS FIXED TWICE, AND NOW IT'S A PROBLEM AGAIN. I SHOULDN'T BE ON THE HOOK FOR PAYING FOR THIS.

ENGINE

3/22/2018 - DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA
THERMOSTAT HOUSING AND WATER INTAKE PROBLEM. THE FACTORY WATER INTAKE IS PLASTIC AND DOES NOT STAND UP TO HEAT SO IT WARPS AND STARTS LEAKING. IT LEAKS MORE WHEN THE VEHICLE IS RUNNING AND UNDER PRESSURE BUT STILL DRIPS WHEN THE VEHICLE IS PARKED THIS CAUSES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO COME ON. WENT TO THE DEALER THEY WANTED $503 TO PUT 2 GASKETS IN AND WOULD NOT GUARENTEE WHAT THEY SAID IT WAS WOULD FIX THE PROBLEM. I WENT ON YOUR WEB SITE AND SAW 18% OF THE SONICS SOLD HAVE THIS PROBLEM. THAT IS ONLY THE ONES WHO HAVE COMPLAINED. I REPLACED THE FACTORY WATER INTAKE WITH A METAL ONE AND IT WAS GOOD UNTIL THE PLUG (WHICH WAS INSTALLED BY THE MANUFACTURER) ON THE UNDERSIDE STARTED LEAKING.
