Body wiring harness to window controls was crimped.
Warranty - homeLink mirror failed
New stop light switch.
GPS Nav screen developed lines - has to be replaced - ordered but not yet installed
Console clock skews one minute fast every one week. Problem went away after the clock was replaced.
Rearview mirror was not dimming in dark. Came to have rearview mirror changed out b/c it was not dimming in the dark like it was supposed to.
Diagnosed front passenger airbag is not sensing. Light is on continually. I do not think they diagnosed accurately. We have had a continuous problem with electrical on passenger side of car. Rear passenger side door does not auto lock too.
Alternator failed- taking out the battery with it.
FWD mode not engaging with spare tire fuse installed-always AWD.
Wiring discrepancy undetermined.
AC Condenser began dumping water into front passenger footwell. AC drain cleared.
TPMS light indicates error in system on long trips (has done so since car was new). Dealer unable to identify problem or any stored codes.
Continuing unresolved problem with blanking audio/climate screens resolved with replacement of center stack screens.
The TPMS system still had a (very) intermittent problem. On occasion, it would indicate a problem on long trips even though none existed. The dealer never replicated the problem, and it was not enough of an issue for me to continue pressing them on it.
Water from a.c. was leaking into passenger floor area.
The vent was plugged, so the repair just involved blowing out the plugged line to clear out accumulated debris.
