A/C not working well. By comparing high pressure readings against a new vehicle on the lot it was determined that a reflash of the PCM would remedy the situation. According to dealership, A/C pressures were the same following the reflash. It was determined that a front strut was leaking and not assembled correctly at the factory. A new strut and related hardware were ordered. Parts arrived (after dealer verified owner's observation of a leaking and misassembled front strut assembly on previous visit) and were installed at this time.

Despite a PCM reflash in 2010, the AC still was "underperforming" when temps exceeded 95 degrees. Tech found a later reflash which improved AC function to be more in line with what it should have been (41 degree discharge air/105 ambient).

Traction control failure light comes on intermittently. It has since vehicle was new. The transmission temperature indicator started to indicate erratically. It used to reach normal temperature in 4-5 miles of driving or less. At times now it takes 15 miles. One day both the fuel gauge and the trip computer's distance to empty were reading erratically. But no codes and dealer could find nothing wrong. Hasn't happened again since.
