used car issues

I had to replace the pinion seal in the differential. That's the only issue I had with my car, but it's an 08.
Also had to replace an A/C compressor on a 07.

I haven't had any problems with my 05 at all. I asked this question right before I bought mine and I didn't find anything that stood out,

Only problem I've had with mine is the Lumbar control in Driver seat stopped working.

They are really good cars. You'll be very happy with your purchase. I for got to mention, had to replace a coil and spark plug on a 05.

Mine is an 08 and had to replace the passenger side rear shock as it was leaking (did replace both sides) at around 38k. Other than that I have had no issues other than normal wear and tear.

no issues on my 05, other than needing to tighten up and pad the door panels to get the rattles out.
