The power vent window actuators may separate at the ball and socket joint. To fix the problem, replace the power vent window actuator socket on the rear quarter glass assembly.
Backlight (rear window) water leaks are common. Conduct a water test to verify the location of the leak. The lift gate trim should be removed and the glass resealed from inside.
If a "honk" noise occurs during low-speed parking lot maneuvers, replace the power steering lines and/or power steering rack and perform revised procedures to bleed the system.
While driving through deep or blowing snow/water, moisture may enter the rear brake drums, causing rust to develop on the rear brake drum and shoe friction surfaces. Over time, repeated (and sometimes infrequent) exposure to the snow can lead to temporary freezing of the rear brake linings to the drums. A revised brake drum and brake drum backing plate is available.
Caused by the parking brake actuator lever(s), AWD-equipped vehicles may experience a rattle in the area of the rear wheels. Installing a foam isolator on each parking brake actuator lever will fix the problem.
Spilling beverages around the cup holder may cause the lid to stick or bind. To fix the problem, remove and wash the cup holder with dishwashing soap and water and apply lubricant to the sliding mechanism.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.  
A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available. 
Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.
A loosening (or loss) of the nut retaining the engine cooling module fan can cause a vibration. If not addressed promptly, the fan blade may not turn, causing the engine to overheat. A revised engine cooling module fan retaining nut kit has been released.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available. 
Excessive smoke from the exhaust, lack of power, and a grinding or scraping noise from the turbocharger can indicate turbo failures. The most frequent cause of turbocharger failure is a lack of frequent oil changes.
An intermittent loss of speed control can happen soon after the transaxle input or output speed sensor has been replaced. The problem is most likely caused by bad connectors.
An improperly-seated connection on the starter (coming from the battery) may cause the engine not to crank. Plastic must be ground off the cable terminal so it can sit flat and flush.
