Power lock actuators on vehicle fail repeatedly. Between 2000 and 2003, three power lock actuators failed on vehicle (both rear doors and front passenger door). Sometimes the actuators get stuck in the locked position, sometimes unlocked. Walked away from vehicle with an unlocked door on several occasions before discovering problem. In one case (front pass. Door), door lock was even difficult (but not impossible) to operate manually: This was stuck in the locked position, making entry into the vehicle very difficult.
