Check Engine Light was on for almost two days then went off while driving to the Dealer. Steering column replaced. Dealer indicated there was a TSB for the symptom which included a very noisy steering wheel when turning. Apparently exposed rivets in the steering column were part of a TSB for this problem, and they replaced it free of charge. Gear shift was hard to move due to rubber gear shift selector cover getting bound inside the console. A new rubber boot/shift selector is on order. It will go in the shop today for installation, and will be covered under warranty.
