Damn stereo ate a CD and now makes loud noises like a toaster being violated. Sometimes plays music, but it would be nice to actually change the damn CD. Happened about a year after getting it used from the dealer. Yay. Fun to add to the list with radiator/transmission/warning lights/abs brakes/4wd failure.
