2 problems. 1st the steering wheel doesnt lock when vehicle is shut of, you can turn the wheel freely and the tires move. Also sometimes not all accesories work when car is running, have to move the key around. Accesories affected are the cigarette lighter, stereo and clock flitters. The second is the rubber window stripping keeps falling off, causes door to not shut properly and is very annoying.
