Problem 1: Brake rotors needed to be turned a week after I purchased the car due to shuttering when the brakes were applied.
Problem 2: A clunking noise could be heard and felt making slow speed left turns. Mid steering shaft needed to be replaced at 27,500.
Problem 3: Clicking sound coming from under the car. Engine cradle had to be replaced at 28,500.
Problem 4: A lot of noise in the transmission when accelerating slowly in wet conditions. Told this was normal by dealership. This problem still occurs.
Problem 5: Tie rod end had to be replaced at 37,000. This cost approximately $250 including labor and parts.
Problem 6: Brake rotors again needed to be turned at 37,000 due to excessive shuttering during braking. This cost approx. $60.
Problem 7: Clicking sound returned from under the car at 45,000. Assuming it is engine cradle again.
Problem 8: Given up on fixing brake rotors at 45,000. Will have to live with the shuttering until I can find quality ones from an after-market dealer.
Problem 9: Random non-starts since 30,000; turning the ignition and the car's starter just spinning, but never starting the engine. This problem is progressively getting worse.
Problem 10: Car has developed a habit of "shifting" around in the road at 55,000 during hard acceleration. The cause of this problem is unknown.
Problem 11: "Low Tire Pressure" light comes on at will and has done so since 35,000. Given up on determining the cause.
Problem 12: Left, rear speaker developed a random rattle at 30,000. Dealer could never find the problem and did not replace the speaker, but was told I could have a new speaker installed for $120 to stop the problem. Now it rattles constantly at anything over mid-volume.
Problem 13: Suspension has gotten progressively worse in the past year. Since approx. 36,000, the car has gone from riding like a large car to a small one.
