TRADED IN MY ORIGINAL RECALL CHEVY COLBALT 2005 IN APRIL 2014. I WAS GIVEN A TRADE IN AMOUNT WHICH I USED TO PUT DOWN ON A NEW CAR, CHEVROLET SONIC 2014. I HAD IT ALL OF A WEEK WHEN SUDDENLY I WAS DRIVING AND STEPPING ON THE GAS PEDDLE IT BEGAN TO SLOW DOWN TO NOT MOVING REGARDLESS TO HOW MUCH I STEPPED ON THE GAS. NATURALLY, I WAS VERY UPSET. I CALLED FOR HELP.THEY TRANSFERRED ME INTO A DIFFERENT 2014 SONIC. FROM DAY 1 I NOTICE PROBLEMS NOT CONCERNED ONLY BECAUSE THE ISSUE LASTED 10-15 MINUTES AND THEN IT WAS FINE. THE PROBLEM BEGAN WITH NOT BEING ABLE TO OPEN TRUNK,DOORS LOCK OF STEERING WHEEL WHEN EXITING THE CAR AND THE BEEPING SOUND AS IF SOMETHING WAS LEFT ON IN THE CAR. AS TIME PASSED IT WAS HAPPENING MORE FREQUENT. FINALLY IN APRIL 2015 THE BEEPING AND STEERING WHEEL AND ALL THE ABOVE NOW WOULDNT STOP. I RAN IT TO SERVICE. THEY DID A TOTAL GLOBAL DIAGNOSTIC SAID ALL WAS NOW FINE. I LEFT WITH EASE, WITHIN 3 WEEKS ON MAY 9TH MY DAUGHTER AND I WERE COMING HOME AND JUST PARKED. I COULDNT OPEN ANY LOCKS REMOTE DIDN'T WORK MANUAL LOCKS DIDN'T WORK THE CAR WAS IN TOTAL SHUT DOWN. I DIDN'T HAVE MY CELL PHONE, I BELONG TO ONSTAR AND CALLED THEM FOR HELP. TO MY SURPRISE THEY REFUSED ME ROADSIDE ASST SAYING ITS AN ELECTRICAL ISSUE THEY DON'T GET INVOLVED . THAT'S ANOTHER ISSUE. BEING IN FLA STUCK IN A HOT CAR FOR OVER AN HOUR OF FEAR IN A STATE OF PANIC, I TRIED PUSHING EVERY BUTTON POSSIBLE OUT OF FEAR, AND CRAZY AS IT SOUNDS I TURN THE BUTTON HEADLIGHTS FROM AUTO TO OFF { TAKE NOTE THE LIGHTS WERE NOT ON } AND SUDDENLY THE LOCKS OPENED. STRANGE.TOWED CAR TO SERVICE AGAIN, HELD IT FOR A WEEK AND CANT FIND ANY ISSUES. NOT SATISFIED DUE TO THE ISSUES IN THE PAST AND MOST RECENT. I KNOW SOMETHING IS SERIOUSLY WRONG. SPOKE TO CORPORATE AND NO ONE WANTS TO DO ANYTHING .THEY ARE ONLY OFFERING ME 11,000 AND I HAVE AN OUTSTANDING LOAN FOR 13,200. SO I WILL BE WITHOUT A CAR.

FIRST NOTICED THIS HAPPENING ABOUT 1 MONTH AFTER THE PURCHASE OF THIS CAR. WHEN STOPPED AT A STOP SIGN OR RED LIGHT, WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE THE CAR FEELS LIKE IT WANTS TO LUNGE FORWARD OR TAKE OFF. OR, WHEN GOING FROM MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE TO THE GAS THE CAR WANTS TO LUNGE FORWARD ONCE I PRESS ON THE GAS JUST A LITTLE BIT.

AT A STOP LIGHT/SIGN WITH MY FOOT ON THE BREAK THE CAR WILL START TO SHAKE/LUNGE FORWARD LIKE THE CAR IS TRYING TO GO BUT CANT BECAUSE MY FOOT IS ON THE BREAK. IT WILL HAPPEN WITHIN A MILE AFTER STARTING AND DRIVING MY CAR AND WHEN IT STARTS TO SHAKE IT WILL LAST MAYBE 5 SECONDS. IT HAPPENS 2 OR 3 TIMES A WEEK ESPECIALLY WHEN ITS COLD OUTSIDE.

AIR BAGS

4/1/2015 - JACKSONVILLE, NC
THE CONTACT OWNS A 2014 CHEVROLET SONIC. WHILE DRIVING 20 MPH, THE STEERING WHEEL SEIZED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO A DEALER, WHO DIAGNOSED THAT THE ALTERNATOR NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE VEHICLE WAS REPAIRED. HOWEVER, THE FAILURE RECURRED AND THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN MULTIPLE TIMES TO THE DEALER. THE TECHNICIAN WAS UNABLE TO DIAGNOSE OR REPAIR THE VEHICLE. THREE MONTHS LATER, WHILE DRIVING AT 20 MPH, THE STEERING WHEEL SEIZED AND THE BRAKE PEDAL WAS DEPRESSED. AS A RESULT, ANOTHER VEHICLE CRASHED INTO THE REAR OF THE CONTACT'S VEHICLE AND THE AIR BAGS FAILED TO DEPLOY. THE CONTACT SUSTAINED BACK INJURIES, BUT DID NOT REQUIRE MEDICAL ATTENTION. THE REAR DRIVER SIDE PASSENGER DID NOT SUSTAIN ANY INJURIES, BUT REQUIRED MEDICAL ATTENTION. A POLICE REPORT WAS FILED. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT DIAGNOSED OR REPAIRED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOTIFIED OF THE FAILURE. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 200.

SERVICE BRAKES

3/17/2015 - SKIATOOK , OK
HAS HAPPENED OFF & ON SINCE I BOUGHT CAR OCTOBER 2014. WHILE AT A COMPLETE STOP CAR WILL ROCK BACK AND FORTH AS IF THE BRAKE PEDAL ISN'T PUSHED DOWN ALL THE WAY & THE CAR ISN'T SURE IF IT IS TO BE DRIVING FORWARD SLIGHTLY OR STOPPED. EVEN WITH ME PUSHING THE BRAKE PEDAL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO FLOOR, CAR STILL ROCKS BACK & FORTH. IF AT STOP LIGHT WHILE DOING THIS ISSUE & LIGHT TURNS GREEN FOR ME TO DRIVE AHEAD CAR WILL NOT MOVE TILL DONE HAVING ITS ROCKING BACK & FORTH FIT. IT ONLY LASTS 15-20 SECONDS BUT CAN NOT DRIVE FORWARD WHILE CAR IS HAVING FIT. IS THIS THE COMPUTER/STABILATRACK NOT COMMUNICATING PROPERLY?
