My Family Were Returning From Vacation When The Car Deccelerated With No Warning. We Were On The Interstate And We Were Inches From Being Rear Ended By The Upcoming Traffic. I Have Been Told The Issue Is With The Throttle Body And That It Is Not Being Recalled Because You Can Still Drive It. How About You Tell That To My Terrified Girls (ages 6 And Under) That It Is Safe To Have Cars And Trucks Flying Past You At 70 Mph And You Can’t Accerlerate To Move Out Of The Way Quick Enough. A Month Later, The Same Thing Happened To My Wife Returning From Work. That’s Twice In 2 Months. We Have Only The One Car And Have Not Been On Vacation For Fear Of The Car Deccelerating. I Guess Instead Of Being In The Business Of Preventing Accidents, People Have To Die First Before Anything Will Be Done To Protect Consumers.

Dealership Stated That It May Need Alignment But Could Not Do Service Until Next Week. Put Gas In Car And Vehicle Stalled. Battery And Oil Light Came On. After A Few More Times Was Able To Get It Started. Stalled Again Stalled Again At Stop Light. Made It To Auto Parts Shop And Put Fuel Injection Fluid In Tank. Car Stalled. Finally Started Again. Made It To Repair Shop. Did Diagnostic Tests No Codes Reported. They Examined The Fuel And It Was Good. They Guessed That The Fuel Pump May Need Replacing. I Researched Recalls On My Vin And Found That There Are 2 Recalls On The Vehicle That Were Never Performed. Purchased Vehicle In May. Never Received Recall Notices. Repair Shops And Dealerships Are Not Checking For Recalls When Diagnosing Problems.
