You may or may not have seen my recent post about wanting to switch to a hatch. I too read this thread a year ago, hoping these issues wouldn't happen to me. In time, the same faults started developing, and before I knew it, I was 12 months down the line with 11 dealer visits under my belt for warranty repairs.
If you are experiencing these issues, they will not go away. Take it from me.....get it fixed, and trade it in. You will not regret it!
