Service engine light comes on and stays on for a period of time then goes off. This has been happening for sometime before warranty expired but has not been taken to a dealer to be checked. Rear suspension feels as if the shock absorbers have already failed, causing harder than normal shocks specially when hitting small bumps or deeps on the road. Key gets stock on the ignition when parking and attempting to remove the key. Vehicle has been in two different dealers in an attemp to correct the failure but it continues to happen. Appreciate any assiatance and suggestions you can provide with respect to similar problems reported to you.
