The LED light behind the channel control on the steering wheel went out and the dealer has to disassemble the wheel to replace the switch. It still changes the channel so I can live with it.

General Comments:

This car is by far my favorite in my 40 years of driving. It's extremely comfortable, quick, responsive and reliable. Never a major problem, or even a small one, save for the led.

I put a lot of miles on my cars and this one has never let me down. Comfort is critical to me as I've had back problems and I can honestly say, on long trips, this is the only car that I can sit and drive for hours and hours and not have to stop, get out and walk around.

I plan to give this car to my daughter for college and go for the STS-V.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a used 2003 SLS, and everything that can go wrong has gone wrong. Water pump, idle air control, mass air flow sensor, ABS system, window control, break light bulbs keep going out. It had 44000 miles on when I got it in 2007.
