Long list of disappointments with this car. I have a 4 cylinder FWD 2008 Vue. Issues began about a year ago. My battery went dead and I replaced the battery. A couple of months later, while driving at high speeds, the steering wheel would decide to lock up. In time, it would happen at lower speeds as well. I just happened to leave my car running for 4 hours by accident one day and magically I never had a steering issue again. A couple of more months down the road, my car's radio just completely stopped working; with one exception. You can pop a cd in, hear the disc spinning in the player, but with no sound, then hit the eject button and cd pops back out. About a week later, the car began to not start and will only start with a jump. I had my cousin, a mechanic for Honda, take a look at the car and he noticed that the lights that show where the headlamp switch and the light in the button for the hazard lights were constantly on when the car was turned off (they are supposed to go off automatically after 15 minutes. Safety feature that GM placed in these cars). The engine light indicates that the camshaft position actuator solenoid need replacement. My cousin also told me that it could be a couple more issues as well. Because he didn't have the tools needed to check my GM made vehicle, he suggested that the PCM could be bad as well on top of possible faulty wiring. But the electric is draining my brand new battery daily and I don't have the money to keep putting into this car. I'm highly upset with the purchase of this vehicle.
What would be the best route to take from this point?
have the same problem?
