Leather on front dashboard and back passenger door is detaching from surface and bubbling. It is rather severe on the front dash. Cigarette lighter (one near front passenger foot) was poorly installed. It pops out all of the time. Front end makes loud scratching noise when moving slowly or breaking and turning. Drivers side window stopped working today. It went out without warning. Trunk smells like there has been a problem with water leaks. I've found interior trunk to be damp on occasion. Occasional water leaks on front passenger side (at feet). Appears to be condensation of some sort. Back cup holder pops out of place. Because of the defect, drink spills resulted in stained carpeting.
