The Alarm System Goes Off Without Anything Getting Near The Vehicle. It Has Been In The Shop At Least 4 Times Now The Alarm Wont Go Off At All. There Was A Popping Noise Underneath The Vehicle Which Was Caused By The Brake Clips Coming Off Brake Chambers. The Dealership Damaged My Vehicle When It Was In For Service. 2 Dents On Drivers Side And A Scratch On The Drivers Door. The Goodyear Tires Had A Belt Broken In The Right Rear, They Installed A Wheel Bearing, Hub Kits And A Safety Vibration Harness But The Tire Still Made The Same Noise. Then They Rotated The Tire To The Passenger Front. I Had To Literally Pitch A Fit To Get Them To Change The Tires And Replace The Defective Tires. I Finally Told Them I Was Not Taking The Car Off The Lot So They Got Me A Rental At That Point. Well There Is Still A Popping Noise When You Turn The Steering Wheel And The Alarm Wont Go Off Now. This Will Be The Fifth Time I Have Reported These Problems.*ak
