The first thing that I noticed was the pulsating. It didn't seem to affect the braking nor the steering. I spoke with a mechanic at work and he advised me to have the rotors turned.
Then recently the front end started making this awful grinding growly noise. I had just bought tires from Les Shwab so I took it back and had them look at it. The told me someone had put the brake pads on backwards.
I had them do the brake job and that's when they found that I needed the front wheel hub assembly replaced. That will cost me $316 dollars. I did buy an extended warranty when I bought the car, but it has a $250 deductible so I might as well have Les Shwab take care of it and know that it will be done right.
Thanks to this forum, I will have them put the Shims in the brakes too so that the pulsing doesn't return. I will have them do that when I have the hubs replaced.
Other small things about the car, the fabric is separating from the rear door panels and the rug liner in the trunk has also pulled away from the body. Also the volume control on the radio is temperamental.
I have also had the problem of the car not starting because of its internal security feature. I have solved that problem. When it happens I take the key and put it in the lock on the driver's side door. Then I lock and unlock the door. Try it with the door closed. That seems to take care of the problem. I found that little trick by accident when I had Jiffy Lube change the oil and it wouldn't start.
It's only happened on other time when my girlfriend was going to take the car to work and it wouldn't start for her.
