Same gas problem it overflows tank when filling it. Abs light, esp bas, and traction control lights came on and brakes go all the way to the floor at times. Window regulators keep going out making my vehicle unsafe for me to put my child in. As a single parent I cannot afford to keep paying for costly repairs (mainly the windows) to prevent my child from getting sick in wisconsin winter. I do not have time in my day to sit and wait on repairs to be done. I hate risking frost bite when my window decides to fall and I'm trying to hold it up! it is now snowing and my drivers side window has fallen into my door yet again and it is 2 am and I really hope garbage bags keep it dry!.
After sitting at a red light, I attemped to pull off from the stop, the abs light and the tracktion control light came on and the rear brakes locked up. I was a mile from home, I put the vehicle in four wheel drive in order to get it to move. I drove one mile to my home and parked, I could smell the brakes. I let the vehicle sit for approximately one hour, tried to drive it and it operated as if nothing had happened. I drove the vehicle again the next day with no problems.
The esp bas, traction control, and abs lights come one randomly. . . Could be driving, in park, going 20 mph. . . Has been going on now since April. . . Dealership says they cant do anything unless the lights are on/active. . . This morning my brakes tried to give out on me and it really scared me. . . I am a mother and need to trust that I paid for a reliable vehicle. . . After reading about 30 different forums I am not the only one that is having this problem. . . This needs to get fixed immediately please.

While traveling on the highway at approx 55-60 mph, driver depressed brakes to quickly slow down to avoid the car in front which had slowed and was turning. Rear brakes on vehicle locked causing vehicle to screech, tires to smoke and vehicle to spin around in a circle and cross center line on the highway. It was a clean, dry highway at approx 5:45 pm. Fortunately, there were no other vehicles in the area besides the one in front. Had an automobile been behind the vehicle, it would have resulted in a crash. Driver was able to drive away from the scene. Abs light came on after the incident, but did not illuminate when vehicle was started the next time about 2 hours later. Abs light was not on prior to the incident. Vehicle has not been operated since it was re-started 2 hours after incident and driven about 6 miles home.
In response to all the complaints of abs light and brakes feeling like they won't work. . . . . . I had this problem and was at the dealership a lot over the last 2 years. It turned out to be a burnt wire!!! I have not had any problems in the last 3 months(which is a long time for this car)!!!!!!!!!!. Please tell your mechanic to check the brake sensor (abs sensor) wires!!.

The vehicle was still able to be driven, but the brakes barely work. The manufacturer stated that the VIN was not included in the recall. The recall number was unknown.
