After 10 years of use, turning left the rubber wheel bearing on the driver side makes a pop noise. Not from driving erradic but from typical wear and tear. Also, there is an mph check engine light that comes on but when plugged up to a code reader, no problems are found. Cars wont pass smog with check engine lights on, so this is a major concern. If there are no mechanical issues why would the check engine light come on? I think computers in luxury cars back then were a bit too advanced for their time and weren't very well thought out. Air bag had a random deployment when I popped the hood and unscrewed the pressure on the radiator fluid. Going to need this VIN added to the recall for airbags to get a new one.

I have already filed a complaint numbered 10785621. The woman on the phone was very helpful. However, I do not feel that the process itself allowed me to give enough information on the problems I'm having with my car, the research that I've done regarding it, and why I think there needs to be an immediate recall. I would like to speak with someone higher up on the chain who can give me additional help with the specific issues that I'm having.
