Complaint: I've had my car a little under 2 years, and I continuously have a problem with the brakes and steering. I've gotten my brakes fixed at least 4-5 times since I had the vehicle. It does not drive or brake correctly when cold but mostly when it's raining or wet outside. I don't know what to do about this issue. I'm afraid of my own vehicle when driving in rain, puddles, etc. Because it doesn't stop with urgency or stay in control when I go over even small puddles. ( I don't have an exact date, I just know it's happened multipleeee times while driving)

While driving 30 mph, through a puddle, the car lost all ability to steer. Power felt as if it shut off for approximately 1 minute. Not the first time this has happened. Can you please investigate or do recall for whatever parts need to be replaced"?"

This model car has at least three headlights. I have replaced the main headlights now 4 times in the last 6 - 7 months. Now the transmission has locked up making it impossible to put the car into park or past neutral. The ESC off light will not go off. This issue has been observed on the 2007 model of this car.
