intermittent issue where compressor wouldn't engage. Worked great when it did engage which was 85% of the time. Relay replaced, but same problem remains. Covered in 2007 TSB with coil the likely issue. Going back soon to replace coil.

Radio mulfunction Light bulb.
Driver side Rear window inoperable. Replaced window motor and linkage. Told by dealer that linkage failed and replacing it required buying the motor and linkage in same kit.
AFS light warning. Dealer said the Advanced Front Light System that controls the HID lights ability to turn into a corner requires a replacement of a $375 sensor in the rear (I think) of the car. It tells the system when the car is level.
Fuse was blown because of faulty power window motor. This resulted in the remote entry fob to not work.
