Check engine light came on, showing code P0441 (Evap system). Dealer "tested" and found no issue, and just reset the code. Driver's power window would snap upon roll up. Been an issue since day one, but not worth a special repair trip. Dealer had for a day, and said it was the glass carrier plate, order the part, and installed. Used the window twice before the same noise showed up again. Crappy dealer work.

I bought a 3rd party stereo and replaced it myself. The radio/nav would routinely lose all settings and then the touch screen stopped responding. The dealer responded that the screen was damaged and thus the warranty was void, and they wanted $2,800 for replacement.
