Tl* the contact owns a 2000 mercury sable. the vehicle had the same failures as mentioned in the recall regarding 2000 mercury sables. the only difference was that the rear coil spring failed and punctured the tire while driving at 35 mph. an unusual noise was heard before the tire was punctured. ford stated that nothing could be done because the recall applied only to the front coil springs. the service dealer replaced the failed springs with ones from the manufacturer, and stated that the noise was due to the muffler baffle. also, the dealer mentioned that ford was in the process of developing a different type of spring that has not yet been released. the current mileage is 39,798 , and failure mileage was 39,700. the consumer stated that the vehicle was taken to another dealer who then replaced the struts and that solved the problem. updated 06/09/07  view

Tl contact owns a 2003 gmc truck. the contact heard a clicking noise coming from the left side of the vehicle. the sound is similar to that of a shock that has failed. the failure occurred one year after the vehicle was purchased. the rack and pinion has been replaced five times. the bearings and shocks have also been replaced. over one year later, the failure has recurred. the dealer has made nine unsuccessful attempts to diagnose the cause of failure. gm stated that the failure could be related to the steering gears and advised the dealer to replace them instead of looping the gears. the manufacturer also authorized the dealer to replace the shock and spring mounts. there was an attempt to repair the bearing gear inside the rack and pinion, but the failure continued. the vin and fuel system were unavailable. the contact has copies of the related invoices. the current mileage is 33,000 and failure mileage was 12,000.  view

While making a low speed sharp left turn, my power steering suddenly stopped working. i was able to avoid hitting anything. diagnosis at the dealer was that the shaft on the power steering pump had snapped. while looking around on the internet to see if others had this problem, i discovered nhtsa campaign id 05v005000 issued in january 2005 which appears to describe my exact problem. i had been informed of several recalls by chevrolet for other problems but had not received any notice of this particular issue and was unaware of the potential danger. the dealer indicated that the vin number of my suburban was not on the list of affected vehicles. i contacted general motors customer care (case #71-523372221) and they verified that my vin number was not part of the population of suburban covered by this action. this is a dangerous matter. if my wife had been driving or if i had been trying to avoid something in the road at high speed, there would have been an accident. i do not know if i just happened to receive an isolated defective pump or if the population of defective suburban is larger than chevrolet currently acknowledges. the pump was replaced.  view
