My Sorento chimes continuously and the seat belts are being worn and no doors are ajar (although two of the door locks do not work either but that is on going with this model. I stopped having them repairs ($500 a pop) when the warranty expired. The chime stops ONLY when at a stop. Very agitating to listen to. Been 6 months now.

I brought my car in for one light being out. I signed the estimate paper that said $35 that it would come to. They called and told me the other one was out too and that my car was done. When I got there the bill was $80. They already did the work but what if I didn't have the money for it? I am very unhappy with this.

Had most of my timing belt done and the pulleys clamped for the cams and the clamps came loose and fell out. Now my timing is off and I have no idea if just realigning with the belt installed will fix or damage my valves because of the teeth the belt jumped. What should my next steps be? I felt comfortable with this job until now, I see the top of my motor coming off and I cringe at the thought.
