VISIBILITY/WIPER

4/14/2015 - STREET, MD
WHILE DRIVING ON OUR DRIVEWAY, (NO TREES, ROCKS, DEBRIS, ETC) THE CENTER PORTION OF THE MOONROOF IMPLODED INTO THE CAR. THE SHADE WAS PULLED TRAPPING MOST OF THE GLASS SHARDS FROM ENTERING THE VEHICLE. NOTHING COULD HAVE POSSIBLY HIT THE GLASS AND I WAS TRAVELING 5 MPH OR LESS, COMING TO A STOP AT THE END OF OUR DRIVEWAY. I HAVE READ MANY COMPLAINTS ONLINE OF THIS OCCURRING AND THINK IT IS A MANUFACTURER DEFECT AS THIS PORTION OF THE GLASS COVERS THE MOTORS/MECHANISM THAT CONTROLS THE MOONROOF. THE TEMPERATURES WERE NOT EXTREME AND THE CAR HAD NOT BEEN DRIVEN PRIOR TO THE INCIDENT. WE HAVE OWNED THE VEHICLE FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS AND ARE NOW CONCERNED ABOUT THE OTHER 2 GLASS ROOF PANELS BEING DEFECTIVE AS WELL. A VERY UNNERVING EXPERIENCE AND WE ARE JUST THANKFUL NO ONE WAS INJURED, BUT COULD SEE THE POTENTIAL FOR INJURY.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

6/3/2014 - NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR
LEAVING WORK I STARTED THE VEHICLE AND DROVE APPROXIMATELY 1/2 MILE WHEN THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AND THE VEHICLE STARTED PULLING AND SHAKING. I PULLED OVER AND TURNED THE VEHICLE OFF FOR A FEW MINUTES. I STARTED THE VEHICLE AGAIN AND IT CONTINUED TO DO THIS SO I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THE DEALER TOLD ME IT WAS THE EXHAUST SYSTEM AND WOULD COST 2300 TO FIX.

I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER AND IT WAS FIXED BUT THE KEY WILL STILL GET STUCK FROM TIME TO TIME AND I HAVE TO PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AND THEN SLAM IT INTO PARK IN ORDER TO GET THE KEY OUT OF IGNITION.
