182-horsepower 2.4L I4 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

7000 mi Center console unresponsive, climate/defrost/radio all non-functioning. Had received recall notice and called several times to schedule. Didn't get a call back then issue actually occurred in our vehicle.

40000 mi Speaker in drive side front door makes "static" noise intermittently, normally right after cold start. Dealer updated software but didn't fix problem. 
50000 mi Took vehicle to dealer to diagnose "grinding" noise related to air conditioning. Dealer reported A/C compressor needed to be replaced and provided estimate of $1500, not under warranty. Chose not to make repairs, traded vehicle instead.
