Center console is loose, dealer said there is a crack and it needs replaced. The part was ordered but I have not yet had time to check the status or go in for repairs. Dealer says it will be covered under warranty. Center console was replaced in mid-May, two months later it still works like brand new. Dealer did a good job with the replacement.
