Exhaust system rattle - had the dealer remove an extraneous heat shield. Had this done in Canada on a camping trip. Confirmed by local dealer that this is common. Transmission started acting up - hill hold not working properly with slip indicator flashing, going from reverse to drive while parking or pulling out of driveway would occasionally stick in neutral (engine rev with controls in drive). Defective transmission - replaced under warranty.
