While driving on vacation at approximately 2 hours away from home destination, there was a pop noise that was heard by all. Kept driving and all of a sudden the right side of the spoiler on the rear of the vehicle popped off and was hanging down. Tried to put back on, but would not go. Took it the rest of the way off, continued on our trip. When we returned home, we took it to a body shop, which the guy told us that we were the sixth person that has had this happen to them and they are going to be fixing it for us for a fee. Would like to see if this would be considered a "recall" since there have been more than 1 of the same situation in the same area as us.

The headliner of my vehicle has become soaked with rain. I believe the weather stripping on the vehicle is defective. The headliner is soaked on the drivers side from the windshield to the middle row of seats.

Driving to columbus, the upper molding around the third brake light got caught by the air flow bent up then broke free from two attachments. This allows the upper molding and brake slight to "flap" in the air flow. If this had broke free hit could have hit another car behind and/or broke the rear tailgate window. Did notice a creaking sound when opening tailgate early in the day. Looked and did not see any problems.
