I have had the same issues with my cruise control. Took it in the first time and they claimed there was a short in the "set+" button so they replaced the cruise control assembly. It worked fine for a while but it went back to doing the same thing. I dropped the car off at the dealer on 8/27. I hadn't heard anything from them as of yesterday (9/4) so I called and left a message for the service manager. The service manager never called back yesterday or this morning so I tried back again today. While I didn't get to speak with the service manager, I was told that they were waiting on parts on back-order. When I asked what the parts were... the ENTIRE steering wheel AND Airbag... I guess that should fix my issues??? I'm just glad it's still under warranty. I can't imagine what a repair like that would cost out of pocket. Something seems wrong when a car has had repairs equal to almost a quarter of its value after only one year... I'm just afraid things like this will keep popping up in the future :/ I will let you guys know what happens.

Well here we are, just over two weeks after I dropped off my car and still nothing... I will have to go back and check out how long they had the car the first time around, but I think I am getting close to having a Lemon Law complaint...

I finally got my car back yesterday, complete with new steering wheel assembly (still not sure why they replaced everything AND the airbag but oh well). So far so good. I'll post back if I have any more issues. I wasn't very happy with the dealer though... I got halfway home and look over at the passenger seat and there is a lovely grease spot on the "silver" colored area on my sport seats... upon further inspection, there was also one right between my legs on the silver area on the driver's side, a huge forehead mark on the windshield right in my view, and a dirty handprint on the headliner right above the driver door... I cleaned it all up myself since I didn't feel like driving 10 miles back to the dealership... Not happy though! Oh, they also didn't have any of my paperwork ready and are supposed to mail it. I just pray that this is finally it...

I wonder if the problem you and others are having affects cars built during a certain time frame. Maybe a batch of bad parts or assembly issue.

What date was your car built? You can enter your VIN here to find out.

Your car was built in the future? lol I didn't see the Flux Capacitor as an option... :/





Edit: After second thought I'm assuming it was built August 11th? Sorry.. not used to the "backwards" dates. :P
