Heater selector from hot to cold does not work properly. After a short time, did not work at all; bent cable. Purchased new cable, bent new cable. Found problem to be not in knob, but in the actual lever/gear the cable turns. Estimate it needs a new heater core (best guess from service shop).

Lancer

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles
The consumer experienced sudden acceleration. The consumer stated that when applying the brakes, the vehicle accelerated. The consumer contacted the manufacturer, who also was at a loss for an explanation as to why this defect occurred. The accelerator pedal would stick, the heater controls would bind up when turned on and at times the accelerator pedal would go to the floor.
