The driver's side power window master switch may lack enough proper lubricant to protect the sliding electrical contacts of the switch. This can cause a short circuit of the switch, leading to overheating and melting of the switch. Dealers will inspect the switches and apply lubricant to them if no abnormality is found. If a problem is found, the switch circuit board will be replaced. These inspections and repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Specific parts of the rear suspension may not have been torqued properly when installing the rear coil springs. As a result, the rear suspension arms may detach, increasing risk of a crash. The dealership will replace the bolts, nuts, rear suspension arms and rear suspension member sub-assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

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.

We love our XB with 115,000 miles on it. Has always been very noisey up front even after trying different tires. I think the wheel bearings have be bad from the get go but I need a reliable answer before I spring the $600 to replace the front wheel bearings.

Got this one new and very happy with the purchase. Agree with others that exterior is kind of cheap, but so was price- especially liked the no haggle price when purchased. Over all, great car with 180000 mi and still going strong. Just got new 60K tires and wonder who is going to give out first?

2004 xB = Best car I have ever owned! I can carry wife, 2 kids, alto, tenor, and bari saxes, and still get 32 mpg in town. No other car can match. Could use better high gear ratio - engine runs little faster than necessary on highway. 72000 miles - zero issues.
