Sour smell coming from A/C. Was told a Chrysler Tech Tip indicated there was nothing they could do, it would get better over time. Engine shutoff feature when stopped at traffic lights, etc. not working. Turns out there is a separate battery to reengage the starter and it had lost its charge. Odd discoloration on hood, appeared to be under clearcoat. Turned out to be something else, a contaminant picked up after I got it, dealership's body shop buffed it out.

Transmission stopped working. Had to get it towed to dealership. Transmission hose wasn’t properly seated, so it leaked transmission fluid slowly. Problem probably happened when car was assembled. The dealership seated the hose properly, which fixed the leak and they replaced the transmission fluid. Everything seems fine since.
