Took in initially for front-end alignment. Lo and behold, new service advisor informed me that the entire front suspension had to be replaced to the tune of $5K. He was shocked when I informed him I had an extended warranty. All was covered. Electric lock and window started working only intermittently on rear driver's side door. Required an entire new wiring harness for the truck. Luckily I paid only a single deductible of $100 for this and the suspension.
