My daughter was driving our 2002 hyundai elantra when she hit someone from behind. all of the injuries from this accident were minor, but the rear seatbelt became a major concern. our grandson, who is almost 2 years old, was in his carseat in the back seat on the passengers side. his seatbelt did not hold his seat. he and the carseat were thrown forward against the back of the front seat. he had some bruising on his knee and struggled to walk for a day or two and this seems to be the extent of his inbjuries. however, i am concerned about what would happen if this had been a more serious crash. i spoke with the local dealer, hunters chevrolet, and they gave me some crap about sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. it all depended on the amount of enertia the car seat generated when it flew forward. this doesn't sound right or safe to me. also, i am interested in finding out why the driver's airbag did not deploy.  view

Engine was replaced at 87,000 miles under recall for head gasket failure. 30,000 miles later engine head blew up again due to the placement of a helicoil in the re-manufactured engine. this helicoil was present in the re-manufactured engine from the factory. i consider this to be a defect in the re-manufactured engine, as the head should have been machined by the factory not just have a helicoil stuffed in. this iis the cause of the new failure and for refuses to repair.  view

Consumer called complaining about hydraulic brake problems. the consumer had taken the wheel off and the problem was the hose from the hydraulic brakes. the manufacturer or dealer were not contacted at the time of this call. age and heat may have caused the hose to expand inward because of the clamp support around it, because it did not expand outward which shut off the normal flow of brake fluid. the vehicle did not brake evenly for three years prior to the problem , but now with the new hoses, the vehicle now brakes as designed.  view

Brake pedal went to the floor without warning. red brake caution light was observed only after the failure.there was no braking power. i had to drive home slowly with use of parking brake. i observed a large amount of brake fluid dripping from the area in front of the drivers side rear wheel. with the car jacked up, upon closer inspection, i observed that there was a section of the brake line rusted, corroded and wet from brake fluid. there was a hole in the brake line as it may have rubbed a hole in the brake line due to close contact with the frame. i further observed a small piece of black cloth electrical tape under the affected brake line failure. i also observed that that there was a pink color paint on the rubber donut that is used between the frame and body and that there was a the same color pink (dot the size of a quarter) painted on the center of the drivers rear side brake disk. this possbily donotes that there was a dealer update in the past. this was done without my knowledge as i have all the repair slips since. service dealer disavows any knowledge of past problems despite the documents that were provided to them. i was advised that i would have to get the car to the dealer and pay a $85.00 charge before being provided a estimate to repair. i have take several digital photos of the affected area and another area of the brake line that had been rubbing against a sharp edge of the frame but has not yet failed. i also observed that the compression rubber donut that is used to keep vibration, noise and comfort on the passenger side had been painted with the same pink color and that the paint was covered with two pieces of black cloth tape. from my research the police, taxi vehicles of the same my 95-97 had the same problems and had been brought back to the dealer for correction however the consumer vehicles have not been corrected.  view

I have had 3 broken brackets on my running lights since i bought my 2002 chevrolet avalanche. but since i have 62,000 mile on it it has now become my problem. in order to replace the brackets you have to replace the whole light. which i have done 6 months after i received the truck for the sum of $70.00. now i need to replace both lights for the sum of $100. apiece. i feel this is a design defect and chevy should take care of it. also my check enigine light has been going on once a month for three months and that seems to be my problem to. i bought the truck in worcester mass. and have since moved to maine and have to travel 300 miles to bring it back to the dealer just to be told by chevy that it is my problem. i want the consumers to beware that just because you pay $37,000 for a truck doesn't mean that the manufacuter will stick by them.  view

Jack collapsed when tire was being changed. the jack couldn't hold the weight of the vehicle. there was a recall to replace the jack with a stronger one, but consumer was never notified of it until the jack broke. consumer spoke with three different dealers who agreed the jack should be replaced. one agreed to replaced it if the consumer pays the $50.00 warranty deductible. consumer think the jack couldn't hold the lincoln but may hold a ford focus. michelin stated since the tire was driven until flat, it wasn't under warranty. since they couldn't match the tires, all four were replaced with big o with a 100,000 mile unlimited warranty. michelin,firestone and possibly lincoln has lost the consumer as a consumer.  view
