Driver door locking itself intermittently. Has happened 4 times since I purchased the vehicle in Oct of 2012. The key was not left in the ignition and there is not a button that can be pushed that locks only the drivers door.

After leaving a remote logging road in northern Maine woods, my wife and I headed back towards bangor, Maine. While traveling apx 60 mph the truck lost power, some warning lights on dash illuminated, I was forced to pull over. Engine was chugging, could not keep it running. I shut it off and attempted to drive further, I could not. It was towed to dealer and crankshaft position sensor replaced. I give thanks it didn't happen on the logging road where there is no cell signal and few other cars.

I was driving along the 805 freeway when my airconditioner lights started flashing. Shortly thereafter all the lights started coming on the dash board. Then I lost power to the engine and brakes. All power was lost. I had to merge on to the 8 West freeway and I was lucky to be able to use my handbrake to slow down and come to rest on the shoulder. After exiting the vehicle, we could smell burning and then noticed there was flames coming from under the front right tire area coming from under the engine. The car then was quickly engulfed by flames and destroyed.
