16000   I stated in Dec that the L/R door seal was ordered because it kept becoming detatched from the door frame. Service was done to do so and I was again very satified with the fast service and good work. It took the service dept about 15 mins. to replace whil 
18000   Rear pads ended up metal to metal in 18000 Mi. and when I questioned dealership about this, they acknowledged that there was a TSB for this because of wrong compound in the rear pads. They also replaced the rotors. The front brakes are very slightly worn.

36000   After rotating tires and checking brake wear, I decided to replace the rear pads because they were getting close to their service life. I felt they wore a bit prematurely (16k miles) because the original rear brakes were replaced under a TSB at 20k miles.
