The radio would freeze. None of the controls would work, not even the on/off switch. The volume would usually get very loud. The only way to "fix" the problem was to shut off the car. When the car restarted, the radio would reboot and it would be OK for a while. The dealer said the radio's files were compromised. They updated the file using the USB port in the counsel. That fixed the problem.

Recall repair for a problem I'd previously experienced. I took the car to the dealer twice, after each of two hazardous trips during which the wipers failed - one torrential rain and one blizzard. The first time, the wiper transmission was replaced under warranty. The second time, I had to pay for the "repair" and was told it was because snow had piled up under the cowl when in fact, it had built up overnight after I parked the car because visibility was impossible with broken wipers. I pointed out the online forums concerning this known situation but it was dismissed. Now the issue is a recall...! The episodes combined with fear while pulling over during compromised conditions, compounded by the blame placed on me, is unacceptable.
