The PS fluid is probably leaking on to the alternator. I would recommend fixing it quickly, before you need to buy a new alternator also.

Robles84 - You are right to check out the gas smell. There is no such thing as a "normal" gas smell. If you smell gas, you are driving a time bomb.

I would guess that it is a price/value tradeoff. The Premium package was relatively low cost compared with the base car ($56,325 in 2005), and provided some popular features. Dealers probably did not...

I was told by an insurance person (adjuster ?) that if the airbag deployed, the car would be totaled out.
It could be that this is unique to CA.

I have not heard that they have gas (between panes), but that they are laminated two-layer. Do you have a source for this information?
Thanks.

I think the problem described is delamination.

In advance of the pictures, I will make a guess that it is delamination since the car is a CL.
Does the glass have the word "LAMISAFE" in the data block? (It should.)
This is a known (but not too...

Correct.
You will probably not be able to find a Base model, so you would have to avoid the Premium package.
That leaves the Modern Luxury, Custom Luxury, or Ultra Luxury which have the Mark...

Just be aware that at least some of the techstream packages will only run on a 32-bit OS.
The PC can be 64-bit, but the OS must be 32-bit.

You can buy a very cheap voltmeter that plugs into your cigarette lighter from Amazon.com.
They have several types, and the least expensive are $5.99 (probably plus shipping).
