TSB for replacement of clutch master cylinder. Groaning of clutch and irregular clutch takeup. Replaced entire clutch. I paid $488 for the "parts" (they initially wanted $900), labor covered by warranty repairs. It has been occuring since ~40K km and considering the 3 other drivetrain-related repairs, I argue the clutch got unusually worn. Both driveshafts vibrated / shuddered violently under throttle. Technician came along for test drive confirmed that "they're either loose or about to break". Driveshafts were replaced. Fluid leak between engine and transmission. Repaired under warranty (not sure if original drivetrain warranty, or under my CPO warranty)

Moon roof leaking from when it was replaced in January. Car taken back twice for the dealer to fix the leak they caused. Each time they say it is fixed but it still leaks on the back of the moon roof where the seal meets the metal of the roof.

I kept hearing a low clunking noise in my engine when I was idle. It had been there for quite a few months but got progressively louder over the past month. Had diagnostic test run on it and turned out it was the water pump. Replaced it.

Power steering broke and I had to get rack and pinion replaced Radiator fan motor broke and had to get entire assembly replaced Radiator fan assembly was replaced by one shop but I noticed it was broken and not working when I got home so I had another shop fix it After power steering repair my engine was making a loud buzzing noise with hard acceleration. Took to another mechanic and was told it was from an "air box" below bumper and that there is nothing structurally wrong with my car and it's okay.
