Recalls are the not unusual for the first years of production with a new product vehicle. Batteries run low and if the oil filter appears to leak in front or behind. Why not tighten the filter. Brakes and headlights usually need changing on all cars. What is the dealer supposed to do about paint chips on a 9 yr. old SUV? Ever try a body/paint shop? Remote not working? Try changing the battery in it. All these are minor and simple solutions to your problems. I hope it helps.

I notice you have posted a couple of comments defending this vehicle from the bad review, does this mean that you own one and never had any of the problems mentioned, or know more happy owners than the amount of people giving bad reviews?
