7000 mi October 2013 dealer updated the UConnect software to v13.38.52, which rectified almost all issues; some remain. EVIC (instrument cluster) will soon get updated software. Otherwise vehicle has been trouble-free and reliable.

3000 mi The radio/HVAC/phone display screen went black, no control over anything. Several restarts did nothing. After a few hours it starting working again. Not worth a trip to the dealer for an "unable to duplicate customer concern no codes found" diagnostic.

Adjustable speeds not working on the fan switch. Also put in new wiring harness behind it because it gets really hot and melts sometimes. Only thing left unrepaired was the driver door lock button. It would unlock the doors but not lock them. You have to replace the entire driver door panel if the switch goes bad. Mechanic offered to do it for $400, but already spent $1,800.
