It took me 3 visits to dealer (20days+)to fix. Problem came from driver side B-pillar and sub-frame where they welded together. The welding spots were rubbing against the hard molding plastic (trim panels). Fixed.I almost declared lemon car.

All 3 plastic trims around the windshield were replaced by dealer due to bending. Bad quality was the issue. Most of work contracted out to windshield shop. Awful service from dealer, planning to sell car because of this. Handsfree mic doesn't work properly on an intermitent fashion. Dealer won't replace the part as it is functional when the car is at the dealer. I guess I have to leave with a non-reliable handsfree system.
