problem #3

  • 10,000 miles


Received first inspection, leaving the dealer, the car smelled of possibly a burning or something unknown. I did not assume this wasn't normal as they had to check several things for the inspection. I had to drive vehicle with open windows for a few days. But I thought that perhaps while checking the oil they may have gotten some on the engine or something. A few days later, the car was making a clank sound when drive gear engaged from full stop. 11 days later, started the car and it it had revved over 4000 RPM. Stopped itself within several seconds. Foot was still on the brake. Drove 5 miles, stopped and parked vehicle. Returning home, on a highway, my car suddenly went over 4000 RPM again while not accelerating excessively, flat and straight roadway, overcast day, mid afternoon. Was doing @54 miles ph. At the high rev, the car had stopped its momentum and was slowing down, but the RPM did not. The car went through several gears then oriented itself many seconds later. Recovery speed was 42 mph. Immediately called the dealer and scheduled a drop off. Has @10,000 miles on it. Mostly highway driving, a few days a week. Otherwise it is parked. My fear was failure to continue momentum resulting in another vehicle colliding with mine and the inability to take any steps to prevent that from occurring due to loss of mobility and control of acceleration.

Vehicle proved to be spontaneously combustive thus the car burned up in a fire due to electrical harness catching fire as stated fire fire department fire inspector. No signs showed any imminent danger, the driver of the vehicle barely escaped before car went up in flames. The vehicle was in motion being driven on a city street.
