Many thanks to those who figured out the stoplight/taillight problem. I have no idea how long ours were defective.
I used a length of solder under the single contact on each side, R & L. I will test this for a while. It seems that one could build a wedge to go between the contact ring and the one below it, to get back to the original dimension.
I replaced the front rotors with an aftermarket, SATISFIED, and they have worked well for the past 30,000 miles. Mechanic said one problem was that the front lugs may have been overtightened. Did Bilstein shocks. Very good.
Same problem with LF window, Master switch. Rear pinion seal went out. Front differential seal was also replaced. Otherwise, a good machine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
