2001 Daewoo Nubira - KLAJB52Z91K- Odessa, TX: February 4th, 2008
The daewoo nubira 2001 should be recalled to replace lower control arms which are attached to the suspension. I feel the control arms' inadequacies are catastrophes waiting to happen. The control arms are faulty and could cause steering failure. This is a part that is replaced on this car model too often. What happens if someone does not have $700 to pay for repair? I ask this because when i drive the daewoo it is increasing difficult to hold it on the road due to the front end rack and pinion steering jerking left and right. I limit my driving to the supermarket and small errands because of this problem, and because of this defect i drive slowly and on small streets. Getting on the highway is completely out of the question. I was told by the technician at motor city, odessa, texas, 432-550-8721, that the ball joint may fall from the frame causing loss of control. I need replacement of these crucial parts. I can live with peeling paint, barely functioning electric windows, and a non functioning air conditioner, but i cannot live with a steering problem that is veering out of control. I know that daewoo is no longer in business - but gmc is. I also know that the ratio of daewoos to other automobiles on the road is low; however, any function or part on a product that may cause even one accident due to mechanical failure should be taken seriously by your department. An accident caused by a malfunctioning steering mechanism on any automobile may lead to someone's death.
