This vehicle is about to shake me out of it. The sun roof even shakes at all speeds and at all time. A $500.00 piece of junk. I'm embarrassed to let someone ride with me. It's unsafe!!!

Collision alert on while in park. They also flash faintly while driving with nothing in front. All sensors clear of debris. This is a recurrent issue for which I was told it was cue related and that replacing the cue would fix. (recurrent issue) service person was able to see this problem as it happened issues with my escalate which include the collision alert displaying ( flickering ) ongoing. Hard to take pictures as it happens while driving transmission bangs low speed (recurrent issues) vehicle locked itself with the keys inside. My wife had to call me to get the spare set and unlock the truck. Theft attempted warning light that was triggered while I was driving and collision lights were being triggered as well I have additional doc I could send bu this system isn't allowing it. Thank you fernando

I purchased a new vehicle a little over a year ago, picked it up at 4pm, on my drive home I noticed a vibration when driving at speeds from 35 miles per hour plus. The vibration increases with speed. I brought it back to the dealer the next morning on Saturday at 8am. I was asked to drop it off during the week, which I did. They replaced 4 tires. This did not correct the problem. I brought it back again a few weeks later, two tires were replaced a second time. I still had the same problem. I brought it back again, the 3rd time they replaced on tire. It did not correct the vibration. I now have my vehicle in for service again, they replaced the drive shaft. I just received an email from the service manager informing me the drive shaft replacement did not correct the problem.
