On occasion the SRS (Static Restraint System, meaning seat belt) warning light and those next to it (can't recall which they are) all flash on for a few seconds and then go off. Maybe an intermittent computer fault. Never shows up as a ODB code.

Driver seat Forward/Back switch is stuck - too lazy to fix as the seat's in a good spot.

All the engine, environmental and lighting electronics are fine - air con is flawless and cruise control is rock-solid.

On long highway trips will get 22-23 MPG so it's not bad for a 4600 lb car.
