 Description of the problemThere have been many issues with this model but the one i am having more issues with, are the head lamps and/or fuses. In october of 2014, my left side low beam stopped working, i bought 2 bulbs so it could be replaced and then it wasn't the bulb, it was a fuse. In january 2015, the left side bulb stopped working again, i took it to the dealer because i couldn't find any fuse that was blown on my own, this time it was the bulb. Now it is the right side low beam that isn't working. I am not sure what is going on but i have another car that is 20 years old and i have replaced the bulbs only 1 time. When i first bought this car in june of 2013, i had it less than one month and while going across a rail road crossing, the car shut off completely. After tests, they said that it showed nothing and then it happened again and still nothing was found. The seat belt sign comes on for the right front seat because of a sensor when no one is in it. The trunk has a delay on it and takes a while to open. The gas mileage is not at all what it claims either. I get at the most 32-34 mpg and 99% of my driving is on the interstate. I didn't get any extended coverage on it because everyone says that they are great cars, well unless something is done to fix the issues that they have, they will never get another buy from me or the hundreds of people i know and all the ones that read the reviews.
