Vehicles with accessories (running boards, etc.) installed by SET are being recalled due to incorrect installation. Fasteners used to attach these accessories were installed with incorrect torque, and may detach resulting in unsafe driving conditions.

This car would be ideal for a college kid driving to school. We traveled from Florida to Pa. with three 10 to 13 year ...

Bought this car in 2007 with 20k miles on it, and it now has 100,000k miles and have never had any major problems with it. The only issues that I've had are instances such as interior console lights "burning" out and my power door locks failing, but then working again, and then not working again, all on their own.
