  • 12,000 miles
Upon starting vehicle the key failed to turn in the ignition. Dealer replaced the ignition lock cylinder 5 times, but the problem still persisted. Also, driver's side door made a cracking noise when it was opened or closed. Dealership lubed the doors attachment, but the noise still existed.
