9300 0 Transmission 1-2 upshift harshness fixed with reflash.  Sync reflashed.  Latch on center console replaced as it would not latch. 
14000 0 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. 
35000 0 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). 
43300 90 Took in for wheel alignment prior to installing new tires. Mechanic noticed battery was cranking slowly, suggested replacing soon. Battery replaced by owner with Interstate battery from Costco.
