(during cold weather warm up) loading vehicle while running, with rear hatchback open, and having rear heater fan on higher blower settings: This allows exhaust from (right side of vehicle) to be pulled into the rear heat air intake vent (also on the right side, extreme rear of vehicle) and is distibuted to occupants in vehicle. We had an 11 month old placed in a car seat when this occurred (upper heat vents selected) which allowed carbon monoxide to be blown directly into his face.. I imagine this could occur during any cold weather idling situation with the rear heater fan setting on higher positions (such as loading groceries after shopping, while children sit inside). Thank you.

Whenever brakes are in use vehicle can slow up, but fails to stop right away. Stopping distance is increased. Had hit a wall & a fence due to a lack of braking power. Vehicle equipped with ABS which was not the problem. Brake pedal went to the floor. Also, parking brake went to floor. Taken vehicle to dealership at least 6 or 7 times. Now pursuing the lemon law. Battery failed. Vehicle stalled. Exhaust leaks and is loud. Air comes through the center vent when the floor control is on. 4-wheel drive would not engage due to a short in the module. Fuel sending unit was replaced.
