Some searching found

FIRST disclaimer: I don't hate the CA, but just listing what I've found via googling and reading other areas.

I am listing ONLY the numerous/greater-than-several reports of real problems. So, things to be aware.

feel free to expand list. This in not intended to be a hate CA post just a FYI, which should prove valuable.

Also, the apparent value of the extended warrarnty was much louded and therefore a great value.

Most issues were the pre 2012 models.

- Numerous exhaust manifold cracking: resulted in a campaign recall, but apparently not solved...then again not particulary anything new. Guessing aftermarket would be better.

- Numerous reports of 'failure on roof top'. Seems the top can unseat during the drive causing a error/warning light. Some mention software, but seems more mechanical. Early models as most these problems seems to be reside, state some sort of flex and therefore alignment problem.

- DCT problems...too numerous to list.

- iPhone/iPod connectivity problems to manily bluetooth and voice recognition also. Some mention software fix and agree. but good luck.

- A/C not working. Just quits. Seems some sort of 'restart' needs to reset the ECU or ??

- trunk problems in conjunction with roof down scenario....not sure it's a true problem but seems many 'stand on one foot and rub tummy' solutions are applied and it somehow works again?

- radio and/or HVAC stops for no reason: Reset via start/stop or battery off technique.
