1st problem with car, door would not stay closed after several attempts to slam door would bounce off door frame. 2nd problem steering wheel would make grinding noise when making left turns only which would result in stiffness of left turn. 3rd problem, 1st winter that I had the car, the molding at the front windshield would be off of the window before any attempt to remove the snow, the dealer replaced molding. 2nd winter came along, front windshield molding off of the window. The dealer stated I will have to pay for replacement, and stated that it was because I hit molding with ice scraper, I explained molding was already off before ice & snow removal. Dealer/owner asked where is the molding I told him I do not know, it was brought to my attention that it was no longer there. Service manager stated that since I hit molding with ice scraper that air got under molding and when driving came off. But both times molding off window prior to any attempt of ice & snow removal. Therefore, I will have to pay $50. Thank you.
