The Plaintiff claims that although his car was not part of a recent recall, it has the same problems as the models and VIN numbers that were listed in the recall.
The driver declares that the car will die for no reason while the car is in motion, regardless of the speed at which it is driven. The car flashes, check engine lights, then turns off, then the driver loses all control of the vehicle.
The second complaint is very similar. The driver claims that when the car is running, it suddenly goes into service engine mode and then the car stops running. Both drivers believe it has to do with a faulty crankshaft and crankshaft sensors.
There are no recalls for the cars listed in the complaint, but there are several other complaints on the NHTSA website that address similar issues.
