58000 180 Had a lot of looseness/play in the steering, especially when turning at full extent. Apparently problem was a worn steering rod, which was not covered under warranty. May have been due to our rough roads, but kind of odd. 
61000 220 Our passenger side wheel hub assembly completely disintegrated in early February (probably courtesy of 5 years of upstate New York) along with the wheel bearing to the tune of $580.
