Summary of Complaint

WE WERE LEAVING FOR A TRIP AND GOT ABOUT 200 FEET FROM OUR FRONT DOOR AND THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS STARTED GOING ON THEIR OWN, THERE WAS WINDSHIELD FLUID COMING OUT AND THE HORN WAS HONKING. THE CAR WAS RUNNING BUT WE WERE AT A STOP. WE SHUT THE CAR OFF AND STARTED IT BACK UP AND IT STOPPED. WE STARTED OUR TRIP AND REALIZED THAT THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET NO LONGER WOULD STAY ON AND THE DOORS WOULD NOT OPERATE WITH THE REMOTE. WE STOPPED AT AN AUTO PARTS STORE TO USE THEIR CODE CHECKER AND WE GOT A READ ERROR AND THE CAR NEVER STARTED AGAIN. WE WERE 70 MILES FROM HOME, COST US $300 TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED. WE HAD THE TIPM REPLACED FOR A MERE $840, THE DOORS STILL DO NOT OPERATE WITH THE REMOTE AND IT IS BACK IN THE SHOP. VERY FRUSTRATED AT THIS POINT.

VIN: 1J8GN28KX8W****

Summary of Complaint

WHENEVER I FILL THE GAS TANK THE GAS PUMP CLICKS OFF WHEN THE TANK IS FULL, BUT GAS SURGES UP THE SPOUT AND DUMPS ON THE GROUND. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TYPE OF GAS (PREMIUM OR REGULAR, OR ETHANOL OR NO ETHANOL) OR THE SETTING ON THE PUMP HANDLE (FAST OR SLOW). THIS IS A FIRE, EXPLOSION RISK AS WELL AS AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM. I REALLY DON'T EXPECT YOU TO DO ANYTHING UNTIL AFTER PEOPLE ARE HURT OR KILLED, BUT WHEN THAT HAPPENS I WANT TO BE ABLE TO SAY "YOU KNEW ABOUT THE PROBLEM, AND DIDN'T CARE". *TR
