problem #4

  • 14,500 miles
The car fails to audibly indicate to the driver that the turning signals have been engaged. Instead of a click, chime, or other indicator, there is silence. The result is that the driver does not have feedback from the vehicle indicating / verifying that that a turn signal has been engaged. The driver may become distracted and may not know when/if a turn signal has been triggered. The turn signal indicator seems to be connected to the radio system. Thus, when the radio system faults (which often occurs on this model), these turn signal indicators also fail. The failure will occur randomly when stationary and driving at surface and highway speeds.

Intermittent electric power steering assist failures. Failures seem to occur most often when the car is cold and backing out of drive way or parking spaces. Power steering will work for a very short period then fail leaving typically when in the middle of a backing maneuver when leaving my drive and entering traffic. Turning car off and restarting will reset the electric power steering assist. This is particularly dangerous in crowded parking areas when I need to turn the car off and restart while blocking traffic. The frequency seems to be increasing for the failures but dealer does not seem to be able to reproduce.

problem #2

Vehicle wanders at highway speeds, very hard to keep on road. Very unsafe to drive on highway, therefore it is only used in city at low speeds. After 11 months it has less than 3,000 km on it. Dealer says they can't do anything about it, it is because of the electric steering. According to them, all these models behave in the same way and for me to monitor it. I have monitored it and if anything it is getting worse. If I don't get any help from the dealer I will have to take it to a wheel alignment specialist, at my cost, even if it still under warranty. Any suggestions?

problem #1

ATS 4-cyl

  • 50 miles
Vehicle wanders at highway speeds on level roads, can't keep it in a straight line. Dealer refuses to rectify, says that it is normal, since their other models are the same. It is a dangerous situation since you are afraid to blink and may end up in another lane of traffic. Just using it for city traffic now. Current odometer reading 1,600 km since new in February 2014. How safe is the electric steering?
