first, when it is cold, my brakes do not work. at first they do not go to the ground and the car takes a long time to come to a stop. fortunately this has only occured when car is started or when it is going less than 5mph. independent mechanic looking at it now. has replaced some brakes pads and services the brakes. water was found in a valve for the power assisted brakes, but the problem still occurs. this mechanic believes water is getting into the brake line but is unsure as to how. the problem does not occur every time i drive it so just when it seems to be okay the brakes fail again. another problem is the windows. even when the defrosters and defoggers are on, the side windows never defog, i need to constantly turn on rear refrost (every 5 min or so) so that i can see out of it. this is a new problem this winter. i cannot see out passenger or driver side window while driving. a third problem is the passenger side window, this is not a new problem . even when the window is all the way up wind howls in the window. you can see a gap and if it is raining water comes in. finally the last problem is also not a new problem. i does not seem to be related to the last problem because it occurred long before that problem. after it rains, water collects in the well between the inside an outside of the door (mostly on passenger side, but occasionally on drivers side) consequently when i open the door a puddle of water falls out on my feet. in the winter the water in the will freezes making it difficult ot open the door. i informed the dealer of this problem when it first occured and they informed me that it occured with all of the cars and that it was just a design flaw and they could do nothing about it. i left it at that although it bothered me. i am complaining now because so many things seem to be going wrong with the car.

i believe it was last year when i received the recall notice on the abs. i took the van in and had it fixed supposedly. the abs light would go off and on throughout the year for no apparent reason. i took the van in once to have this checked and they said they couldn't find any reason for this. on 1/8/99, i was pulling out of a parking lot when i experienced what felt like a complete loss of brakes. luckily no one was near me and i could reverse into a parking spot and put the gear into park to stop the car. if i had been on a secondary road or highway at the time of the failure there could have been diasterous results.

when traveling at highway speed in a head wind ( using full gas pedal at time the center a/c vent switchs to defrost nothing you do will re switch to center vent (you can turn off the a/c system, and when you turn it back on, it still is in defrost. no control will return a/c back to center vent) until you let off gas pedal and slow down, when this happens front windshield fogs up, blinding the drivers view of the highway. the dealers had to check the vacuum system and found no problem with the vacuum system, this is a off and on problem it will not do it all of the time, but when it starts there is no warning, i nearly had a accident while traveling back from miami to tampa. *ak
