I have had to replace the brakes twice, as well as the driver side hub. I have replace the door trim at least 4 times. Everyone I have met that has the same year has had trouble with the trim. I also feel that the transmission has trouble shifting when towing.

The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and they were unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and offered no assistance. The failure mileage was 57,000. Updated 07/06/12 on four occasions the door began locking, unlocking, chiming as if the doors were open. The warning lights began flashing and the vehicle would decelerate quickly as if the vehicle was placed in neutral and the accelerator was unresponsive. The dealer was unable to diagnose the problem.
