All the brake and tire stuff sounds like bad driving conditions to me. I don't want to get accusational that the driver is a "bad" driver, I don't know the driver, never seen them drive, but if I were to just read those symptoms and compare it to every other driver of the same vehicle, I would assume there is a lot of extra fast acceleration, hard cornering and hard braking or riding the brakes going on. It may not be bad habits, but the area where the van is operated may require driving like that.
As for the other stuff, every vehicle made these days has cheap plastic parts and the lowest cost materials/parts available. Stuff will break. Faulty sensors are the bane of our existence these days. At least it's not worn piston rings or broken camshaft at 50k like the old days.
The storage shelf is a wonder of bad modern design. Mine also flops around, but not "violently" (and I'm on CA roads, basically a bunch of connected potholes and patches, because they spent all their money on perks and benefits for the highway department employees instead of fixing the roads, but that's another story...). I'm planning on "fixing" mine by removing the cheap plastic "brace" and replacing it with aluminum square tubing, and removing/replacing the useless center console.
I am aware of the guibo issue, and will have one on hand to replace at about 50k. Maybe there will be a quality aftermarket one soon.
LOL. Still the trip would only last 7 minutes and the shuttle makes it's way back to the airport with just the driver. Around half of the 85,000 miles were with just 1 driver in the van.
