0 The transmission shifted hard at low speeds. The dealership reprogrammed the transmission control module (TCM) and now the transmission works just fine. 
4000 0 The passenger side tail light assembly needed to be replaced because a piece of the internal plastic was broken. 
21000 0 Every time I would turn the air conditioning on their was a pulsating noise coming from the engine compartment. When I would turn the air conditioning off the noise would go away. The passenger side panel turn signal light was burned out. When making left and right turns there was a noticeable power steering whine coming from the engine compartment. The dealership discovered that the pulsating noise when the A/C was running was the A/C compressor clutch seizing. The dealership replaced the A/C compressor and the noise went away. The new turn signal light bulb that the dealership installed did not work so they now need to replace the wiring harness for the light. 
23000 0 The light now works after the dealer replaced the wiring harness. The dealership installed the 2nd generation of the power steering hose and now the power steering whine is gone. The pulsating noise that my air conditioning was making before came back. Previous visit dealership replaced air conditioning compressor which solved the problem temporarily. Now the dealership discovered a leak in a air conditioning hose. Parts are on or 
24000 0 AC system low on R134 due to leak at compressor discharge hose at crimp fitting. Replaced hose and recharged the AC system.

4000 0 Problems with poor FM radio reception since delivery. In November the dealer identified it and agreed it was a problem and ordered an antenna module. It was installed, but problem isn't completely gone. Better, though.

1000 0 Driver-side front fender had a small dent that the neighbor noticed after we parked the car in the driveway the first time. The maintenance manager determined that the dent occurred prior to the car being painted at the factory. 
2000 0 Dashboard was misaligned due to an installation mistake at factory. Trunk lid was off center in opening, so the gaps were visibly uneven on each side. Dealer farmed work out to a body shop, which had to adjust the taillights and bumper fascia to acheive correct alignment. Power steering whines excessively and causes minor vibration in the steering wheel. Dealer indicates no problem exists, but I don't buy it. 
7000 0 Hood was out of alignment. Trip to the body shop only changed the misalignment but did not correct it. Sunroof rattles incessantly over minor bumps, but they were unable to reproduce the problem. Left rear door interior trim was scraping against the interior door trim. New trim piece was installed and problem resolved.
