car   Loud Engine Noise problem 1
Failure Date: 11/03/2014

It is a shame this vehicle has not been recalled for any of the problems we have encountered. 1. Steering wheel is difficult to turn at slow speeds and makes loud rubbing noise. 2. Door locks will not unlock using key fob. Have to manually unlock by hand from the inside. I consider this a danger. 3. Vehicle will not maintain one speed on its own. Even with cruise control, the car's power decreases. I am petrified to pull out in traffic with this car. 4. Sunroof leaked all over into the interior electric due to improper installation from the factory. 5. Turn signal switch does not work. 6. Heating and cooling system does not work properly. Can only adjust temp if you set it on windshield defrost mode. 7. Rear end has strange bang coming from it. Dealer can't determine any problem.
