All brake lights failed for unknown period. No warning or other indication given that brake lights were inperative until a "near miss" accident and we discovered brake lights were inoperative. Dealer found a worn connection on two wires in turn signal switch. Resoldered wires to correct the problem.

Wires keep getting cut by the car harness, why are the wires located in the harness? this is getting dangerous driving without brake lights is a hazard. The fuel line / pump has never worked correctly, and who ever heard of a transmission going out at 50,000 miles. Please note I have never towed anything with this car and I am a very careful female driver without any accidents or speeding tickets, oil is changed every 3,000 miles, all highway driving. Please help! this car is a disaster and a hazard. The leaking fuel line could have killed me, no brake lights...obvious issue. Thank you! liz zimmer.
