There was intermittent stalling. The dealer was unable to resolve the problem when the consumer would have the vehicle towed to the dealer. The consumer felt that the vehicle was dangerous to drive. The consumer smelled wires burning, the check engine was on, the seal for the rear hatch leaked water, there was a long crank with the engine when warm, there was a winding noise coming from the driver's left front tire area due to a failed bearing which destroyed the entire front differential, the A/C was not cold due to a leak, water leaked in the trunk, the mirrors would not tilt in reverse, a positive cable was loose and a bolt was stripped, the starter would not engage after waiting for a short period of time and an abnormal noise would be heard when restarted.
