155-horsepower 2.0L I4 6-speed manual FWD

  Driver side mirror shakes above ~35 mph (rearview and passenger side mirror are solid). They inspected it and said there was no issue. It still shakes. Update: it stopped bothering me. Not sure if it went away or I just got used to it. 
3000 mi   Rattle under the dashboard when riding over bumps. Left side of lower seat (where your butt is) was ripped upwards off the base. Lower seat trim cloth had to be replaced. 
4300   Seat cover replaced. 
7000   Rattle from dashboard, especially from the passenger side. 
16000   Symmetrical dents due to body fatigue on both sides by the hatch. Those are symmetric and look very similar on both sides. Left side dented more than right side.
