Electric motor in Hybrid system seems weak. Less resistance than when new, lower gas mileage than when new.
Car died. Towed to dealer. They said originally battery defective under warranty plus bad fusible link. Later said inverter bad therefore nothing covered under warranty. Want $5500 plus tax to repair. Asked why no warranty. Answer nothing defective.
Car died. Battery determined defective. Also found a fuse and inverter bad. Only battery and tow covered under warranty. Owner paid the rest.
Coolant pump sounding noisy. Replaced pump under warranty.
Tire press. light came on while driving, stopped and put air in and tried to reset but the light did not go off. More user error- I didn't hold the set button down long enough and they put in a little more air.
