Clunking noise and feel in steering when turning, growing worse over last month. Fear that some component might fail completely, resulting in an unsafe driving condition at speed. 
Feb 2011

33000 mi
Clunking noise previously reported and supposedly repaired last month was still not completely gone. This time the steering box had to be replaced. Noise is completely gone now. Sensor for traction control system is "shorted out". Indicator light on dash comes on at random. Estimated cost to repair will be $500.00. Chose not to repair at this time. The clunking noise when turning (especially while hitting a bump during a turn) is back. It is quite noticible, even to the dealer. They say they do not know the cause, have already replaced the likely causes at my expense, live with it.

Engine hood required excessive force to properly latch. Dealer adjusted the frame latch; however in doing so mis-aligned the hood, striped metal bolt, and destroyed plastic rivets. I re-aligned hood myself and replaced plastic rivets. Left rear side bumper could be moved over an inch back and forth with the mud flap due to two plastic rivets used to attach. (right side had metal rivets). Dealer replaced one plastic rivet with metal but not the other. Moves less but incomplete repair.

Internal valve of A/C not closing. A/C still works some, though mechanic says it should not. Unit needs to be replaced at cost of $1350. Update: after recharge continued to work okay. "rollover mount" holding engine to frame broken. Causes slight vibration. Felt light engine running rough when cold idle.
