IF THE HEAT/AIR SELECTOR IS POSITIONED TO DEFROST THE AIR CONDITIONER COMPRESSOR RUNS UNTIL THE ENGINE IS TURNED OFF. THIS MAKES IT MORE DIFFICULT TO MAKE THE CAR COMFORTABLE AND WASTES GAS. WHEN I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER, HE AFFIRMED THAT THE CAR WAS DESIGNED TO WORK THIS WAY.

MY AUTO SLIPPED FROM PARK TO DRIVE SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 2007 WITH NO WARNING. WE HAD A TERRIBLE SNOW STORM AND I HAD MY CAR IN PARK WHILE CLEARING THE WINDSHIELD AND IT SLIPPED FROM PARK TO DRIVE. THIS HAS HAPPENED BEFORE WHILE DRIVING WHERE IT WILL SLIP FROM DRIVE TO NEUTRAL. MY LOCKS ALSO LOCKED AS SOON AS I SHUT MY DOORS AFTER STARTED MY AUTO. I HAVE POWER LOCKS AND THE DOORS SHOULD NOT HAVE LOCKED WITH THE KEY IN THE IGNITION. I WAS LOCKED OUT OF MY CAR FOR OVER AN HOUR UNTIL I COULD GET A TOW TRUCK TO MY HOME TO OPEN MY CAR.
