6000 0 Drivers side electric window automatic UP not working properly (noticed it since new Nov 07, at 2nd oil change dealership found a TSB to fix but had to order parts).

33000 0 Light bulb(s) out on Heater control knob at May oil change. Had to replace entire panel just to get new bulb(s). Good news-warranty covered it. Bad news-what a dumb design. 2 mons earlier in late June, one night tranny was "stuck" in 4th gear. Ran ok except obviously slow to take off from stop. After 5 min stop, ran normal and had since then. No codes present, reflash tranny, does drive diff now, hope fixed!

66000 100 Check engine light, O2 exhaust sensor replaced but covered under $100 ded 7/70 svc contract. 
66500 300 Transmission coolant lines leaking. No easy way to reach them so to ensure Chrysler will honor the lifetime engine/tranny warranty paid dealer to replace vs independent shop simpler fix. NOT covered by service contract since a "hose", hmmm.
