Interior Lighting problem #1

(1) a screw fell out when I opened the sunglass holder. I did not know what it came from at the time. (2) the maplight assembly, which includes the sunroof controls, the two power sliding door controls, and the rear hatch control, fell from the roof while crossing railroad tracks. The maplight assembly was hanging in midair by the wires, swinging wildly, and blocking the view of the road as I was crossing the railroad tracks. Upon examination, the plastic around one screw had cracked apart, separting the screw from the assembly, and the second screw had just fallen out. (3) I took the vehicle back to pohanka and they replaced one screw and put a washer and a different screw for the other connection. They did not replace the maplight assembly, just put two different screws and a washer to reattach the maplights.
