Every winter or when the weather gets cold there is a strong smell of raw gas coming in through the air vents, when car warms up in morning even with all windows open smell is choking and unbearable. Also brakes squeak terribly like a big truck when turning to left and braking, even at slow speeds, such as in a drive thru or parking. Even brand new brakes. Lastly and most scary is the driver seat shifts, rocks, forward and back when braking hard or during a sudden stop. Purchased car in 2007 as a lease return.
