2000 0 Power liftgate motor working intermittently; replacement ordered. 
3000 0 The motor was not the issue. Once it had been replaced, the intermittent problem still existed, so they dumped and reloaded software into the control module (during the same dealer visit) and it has been functioning as intended ever since. 
29000 0 High Pressure Fuel Pump leaking fuel into crankcase; TSB exists so HPFP replaced under warranty & oil changed. Lower rear door rubber seal (near wheel opening) froze to body and pulled off when door was opened. Part replaced under warranty, no more issue.
