Wiring harness was installed with wires that are too short, possibly causing vehicle not to start and/or to shake when it does start. Also windows won't roll down at times. Dealer replaced faulty starter. But not willing to do anything further because vehicle is over 36,000 miles. Extended warranty was purchased....
