4000 mi   The rear wiper blade and holder came off while driving. Dealership ordered new part, we came in a few days later and they installed it. Took about 1 hour to get the car back. 
8000   I never received a recall notice. I ended up doing it on my own because I knew the vehicle wasn't riding right when it went over bumps so I brought it in and informed them of the recall. Also had some loud squeaking from the rear hatch. Mechanic found one of the rear hatch pistons had excessive play. Dealership ordered a new piston for the hatch.
