problem #2

  • 6,000 miles


When I first start the vehicle it makes a loud whine noise for about 2 to 5 min. Then seems to go away. If the vehicle sits for 3 to 4 hours it will do the same noise again. Dealer told me that all the six cylinders make that noise and it's normal. Have never owned a vehicle that makes a whine noise where something wasnt wrong epecially at around 6000 miles on the vehicle. The vehicle was stationary when it happens but if you drive off right away the noise continues as you're driving.

problem #1

  • 2,000 miles
We were driving through an intersection and the back hatch back opened even though the vehicle locks were engaged and locked shut. The door locks were engaged. There was no warning light, no audible alarm-not a warning of any kind. At that point, we had not idea the hatch back was opened, and because we were on a slight incline, a golf club fell out of the golf bag and landed in the middle of the ontersection. We realized the hatch was opened after we passed through the intersection ( saquaro and shea in fountain hills, Arizona. Major concern as there was no warning of the instrumentation of any kind, and this was a rental car. I believe if we had a full cargo payload, it would have discharged from the rear causing traffic impediment and possible crashes to say nothing of the loss of property or if we had a live animal, the loss of the animal.
