I have had to replace the battery twice about a year apart. The first time it went dead I had to get a jump start to get to work and it shorted out my audio system nothing else just the radio. Still not fixed!  I haven't had it checked out yet but I have read that warped rotors are a problem with this model and when I hit the brakes I get a pulsing sound, different than when the anti-lock brakes are activated, so I think that the rotors are warped seemed to be leaking from the rear windshield drivers side, I put windshield RTV on it thought I had it fixed but I still have a leak from someplace. I will either go all the way around the window with RTV or have it replaced. Then wait.

Cruise control would not set, doors would not lock or unlock automatically, D, I & L all did the same thing, backup lights did not work. Dealer reprogrammed transmission control module.

Condensation dripping on passenger's side floor mat. Dealer allegedly unclogged A/C drain. Problem not fixed. Tried another dealer. Found cracked evaporator housing. Repaired.
