Aug 21, 1998
Location:
Berkey, OH

transmission shifts late on certain occasions jumping into gear, diagnostics' were performed by dealership resulting in a negative result, the truck still persist's with the problem usually at speeds' 35 mph and under. the truck has pulled right upon delivery, dealership replaced calipers stating that the o.e.m. calipers were seized from factory, three days later the problem was back, dealership performed alignment, problem still persisted and continues to do so. the reason i put power steering down under the comments section is because of my belief that the problem resides in the steering gear-box, which has not been checked. the back-up lights did not work upon delivery but were fixed immediately and have been fine ever-since. the drver-side window molding leaks and on certain days causes fogging of the window resulting in a loss of vision and an unsafe driving condition. o.e.m. jackstand is also to short to replace tire on independent front suspension.

Sachse, TX

our van started showing holes in the paint in 1993 (very small on the hood). we tried to fix the problems with the touch up paint provided. this did not work. the paint started bubbling up and "popping". each time it did that a hole would appear that got bigger and bigger. we later noticed the roof doing the same thing. every time we washed the vehicle (gently) more paint came off. every time we brought the car in for servicing (at dealers in richardson, tx and plano tx dealers we mentioned to the service managers the problem and asked if any other vehicles were having the same paint problems they indicated they had never heard nor seen any ofher vehicles with the same problems. they always indicated it was our problem. we asked how much it would cost to re-paint the van and were told that it would cost $2,000 or so dollars. they always indicated that it was our problem and no one else had had the problem. i have come to find out that this is a common problem with vehicles between 89-94 and that the paint/primer bond was the problem not potential customer neglect. our van statred rusting so we went to several paint places to get estimates for re-painting. we are now having the van re-painted for approx. $800. (not $2,000 as the dealer would have charged.) this should not be a "customer" problem. the paint peels off, goes into sewers/ground and pollutes. the rust weakens the structures of the vehicles and makes them less safe. fyi i notice loads of vehicles in the same years with the "same" problems. the jack stand bent when we were changing a time. the bottom just bent to the side. luckly no one was hurt as the tire was still attached when it bent.
