Dodge Nitro 4x4 2007

Safety incident date:

Location:
Randleman, NC

during acceleration, pedal sensor malfunctioned, which didn't allow vehicle to maintain or increase speed. vehicle decelerated on interstate, posing an immediate hazard to other drivers. since, it has happened twice more. once it wouldn't allow vehicle to accelerate past 35, and the second time it wouldn't go higher than 10 (also in a 55 mph area). second, though the recall has been on manual transmissions only, the parking break on the 2007 dodge nitro 4x4 r/t is faulty, and though the light comes on indicating it is in use, the parking break does not engage. this has been true from initial purchase. this poses a risk when parking on any grade that will need the use of a parking brake. this also causes issues in some areas in regards to inspection, and will not pass inspection without repair. finally, when using the turn signal, the opposite direction signal will trip, causing the signal not to turn off but just to keep switching directions and must then be toggled on and off to get it to stop.

0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 107000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1D8GU58677W. Vehicle was not using anit-lock brakes. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. Vehicle Speed: 55 mph.
