CV boot torn and needed to replace entire set when purchased. It made a really bad grinding noise when I turned the wheels to the right.
Drive belts needed to be replaced.
Unusually high amount of corrosion on battery terminals, which I assumed was harmless, but may or may not be related to my next point...
Car will sometimes fail to start, usually when the engine is cold and the car has not been driven for a few days. In the event that this occurs, the car usually cranks after the first failed attempt, but it sometimes takes two or three times. I try to switch the key to the "ACC" position and back several times in an effort to prevent this, but I'm not sure if it's helping.
One foglight went out, didn't care to replace it, although the foglights make a pretty noticeable difference when they're on.
I have heated seats, and as far as I know they don't work... the light doesn't come on when I switch them on. Another thing I don't care to fix.
Cupholder can be entirely pulled out and removed (that's not supposed to happen) from the console area. I'm sure some screws or glue will fix that.
Gas mileage seems like it could be better, but my last Max was no Prius when it came to fuel economy.
Car sometimes seems sluggish for no good reason, but overall the power is awesome.
I could be crazy, but sometimes it feels like the car wants to go dead.
The clock will dim almost to the point where you can't see it at all if you have any exterior lights on during the day, i.e. in rain. The lights on the radio and temperature controls are still fine during this time, though.
The clock also will occasionally go out for a while and later reset itself to 12:00 for no apparent reason. Laaaame.
The factory CD player, in my experience, doesn't like CD-R's or CD-RW's (burned CD's) too much and sometimes won't play certain brands or discs. Or maybe my car just hates my music, you never know, as it is sometimes difficult to tell what genre of music each automobile is partial to.
My factory CD player will produce a static-y sound sometimes while playing CD's. It sounds just like a radio's static, and sometimes it will get so static-y that the CD player will stop playing the disc and it will display an error message. I'll turn the player off, then on, and this usually will be sufficient to allow the CD to continue playing, though sometimes it just doesn't want to work and I have to put in another CD. I have been told this is due to a dirty lens and can be repaired with a cleaning CD; however, I tried this a thousand times over and it made no real difference. I don't know what it could be.
(If anyone knows the solution to any of my above mysteries, please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be appreciated!)
