When driving & switching from high beams to low beams or vice versa, headlights would shut off. Holding switch too long would cause entire light system to go out. Took to dealer & was told everything was working fine.

Braking problems: Brakes were wearing prematurely and ruining rotors vehicle had abnormal vibrations while applying the brake...found that the calipers/bushings were too long shaved off 1/4 inch and it cured the problem...they were dragging constantly as a result...have had no problems since this was done. Lighting: Have experienced problems while night driving...when putting on the high beams I have lost all lighting inside and out...once U switch back problem is cured this has happened several times and it is shocking when U can't see...does not happen every time... alternator: Had to be replaced after car was in my possession for one year...also battery as a result...engine coolant: Experienced my low coolant light coming on in the mornings approximately 3 minutes after starting vehicle...check coolant resevoir and it is empty...placed coolant in and again this morning same thing...replaced coolant...drove to dealership and it was determined that coolant is leaking into the engine somewhere and oil level was 2 quarts above normal which meant that coolant was in the oil...awaiting diagnosis possible a intake gasket, head gasket, or cracked block....summary: In a nut shell I have had alot of problems with a vehicle I paid good money for some of which could be major safety issues....I have 70,281 miles on this car and I keep up on all maintenance....very upset and awaiting a better prognosis for the future!
