My 09 Corolla needed an interior fan replacement. No trouble, really.

Yes, had to replace the front brakes on our Dodge Caravan four times in 36 months. Part of the reason I now own a Toyota. First set of front brakes went on the Sienna at 76,000 miles.

Yes, I'm taking my vehicle to the dealership for the third time regarding this issue; I have rain water coming into my vehicle from the rear window, or possibly from the brake light/reverse light by the top of the window.

I'm actually looking to get a newer car. (Not new, but newer than my 1997). The ones I've been looking at still have some original warranty left! So looks like this will be my first car with a real warranty. Never had one of those!

This will be weird, getting a repair done under warranty. I'll probably still not bother with it and just fix it myself.

Just been driving Hondas and Toyotas. Never have any problems for first 100k. I stop buying the extended warranties as Honda and Toyota too reliable.

Ha! Never owned a new car, much less had a car with a warranty.

Anyways its easier and less fuss to just fix it myself than go through the botheration of taking the car to a shop.

I've run so many different media devices with my Ford SYNC that it's not working right. Ford knows they have a bug, they tell you to pull the SYNC fuse to reset the whole thing from scratch. I tried for at least fifteen minutes to pull it but couldn't. I gave up when one of my neighbors came out and asked if I was all right.

Also, my BFF pulled on the passenger's side sun visor to unlock it and the part in the headliner that it slides into came out. I could take a screwdriver downstairs but I would rather have Ford pay them to fix it.
