Problems with the pneumatic system can cause closing assist and door lock issues.

The door for the vanity mirror (or the frame for the door) can break; due to a redesign, the mirror "cassette" will need replacement.

CD changers, command units, voice control units, PSE units, and Tele Aid units are prone to failure, especially in early models.

Trunk opens normally with key fob or door switch but only stays open for 5 to 10 seconds then closes on its own. First reasonably slow/soft then quite firmly when the trunk assist engages.

locks on all doors are functional,key fob works on all doors but right rear will not open.

An error message came on, something about needing to format something.
