Ever since I purchased this vehicle I hava had problems with is features. Power seats that move by themselves, automatic dimming mirrors that turn pitch black in middle of day, power tilt steering wheel that has unpredicitible moves. Auto windshield wipers that dont fucntion properly in heavy down pours. The seats are power and they will move all by themsleves and move the driver either into the steering wheel or pull the driver back from the wheel and pedals. The rain wipers do not function properly, durning heavy downpours they just stop working making driving next to impossible. The auto dimming reaview mirror turns itch black for no reason in middle of day so you can not use mirror to look behind you. I have reported all these problems to the dealer and they say they are normal, they checked them out and said that if they are intermittent they will never find any problems and they refuse to take care of the problem. These are major safety hazards to drivers and something needs to be done.
