Has been crackling for awhile...just took apart and found the only thing holding it together was four screws that screw into small plastic holes and the latch is only held in with two small plastic hooks. The part will cost us over $200 to replace this cheap plastic lid that will probably break again. We are senior citizens and had planned on this being our last car. We have had problems with rear brake problems (covered) as well as front brake problems (locking up and not covered). We even bought the extended coverage. Weren't we smart?

It seems as the spring for my console latch came off so now the latch is just really loose and flops around. It just happened yesterday and today is sunday so I wasn't able to contact the dealership yet, but its just one more problem that i've had with car and its barely a year old, I'm already thinking of trading it in for something else.
