18600 0 The sensor for the ABS, Brakes & Check engine has to be replaced. 
19840 0 ABS sensor installed. It was completely annoying to have to wait 3 mths. for the work to be done, because they had to order the parts from Korea. I don't really believe it should have taken that long. They can ship a car faster than that. 
35340 0 ESC/ABS light on. Have had my vehicle in for this problem several times. Usually something different, but in this last case, they still haven't resolved the problem. Taking it in AGAIN to find out what the problem is. NOT HAPPY! 
53600 0 Esc., brake, motor display lites continually stayed on. Dealer couldn't repair it after 6 attempts. Finally they had to order a new electrical harness which took 3 mths. to have sent here from Korea.
