Rather than that, I suspect the car was involved in a front/rear freeway shunt. Unfortunately, this WILL eventually show up on carfax to the detriment of the resale value.

There are better CPO...

Well, commercial door openers, etc, are X-band but speed cameras are mostly K/Ka band. Do you have lots of cameras in OC (Orange County?)

The radio automatically switches to mono and reduces high frequencies when the signal strength is low. Yes, it sounds like a bad antenna signal. Could be the ground but more likely the center...

This is your best bet, if you can find a good guy to spot and buff the chips. Otherwise getting the bumper, hood, trunk lid re-sprayed is a bit of a crap shoot. If they do the job properly, $2000...

I don't think the rear door windows are laminated (only the front). You should be able to find an OEM one at a wrecking yard. I don't think you'll find an aftermarket source and the dealer will...
