I haven't owned mine that long, but so far I have had issues with the wheel bearings, rear LED tail lights, and catalytic converters. I have 36K miles.

make sure it's not leaking oil, others have reported rear engine seal leaks.

Mine has 64k on it and i have the following issues:

Driver lumbar no workie
Gas gauge has a mind of its own
Power steering whines. (Might just be low on fluid, but i am lazy. LOL)

Other than those, it is problem free. Havent had any problems that i have read on the forums.

yea, my power steering whines too. I took it to the dealer, but they said they couldn't find anything wrong. since it's new to me, I just figured that's normal.
