81 mi   The very first day I owned the car, it began having intermittent issues with the passenger air bag and seat belt. The seat belt sensor on the passenger seat was bad, and was replaced. Took the dealership 5 days to diagnose (didn't take complete info). 
10000   When coming to a stop in cool/cold weather, car shudders/idles rough. Has not stalled. Gas door won't stay open. Dealer states this is normal, but door stays open on other cars on lot. Dealer states those are "corroded." Salesperson who sold me the car says it's not normal and the hinge needs to be replaced. 
16000   Car idles very rough, especially in cold weather. Was told that the idle is controlled by the computer, and that the computer reports nothing wrong. "They all do that." Gas door hinge allows gas door to flop freely. Dealer stated that the only way to replace is to replace entire gas door, and the paint won't match. Decided to just leave it the way it is so it doesn't look horrible.
