All 4 interior door handles had become razor sharp after a separation in the seam. All 4 handles were replaced at no cost to me. The new handles are very smooth, and look nice. Received service stablitrack, service traction control, traction control off warning message on DIC. Stablitrack and ABS lights were lit up on dash. A thud could be heard when turning. Dealer stated the Hub was separating - Replaced parts. Driver side door squeaked upon opening and closing. Hinge roller had seized. Dealer lubed door and suggested to work the hinge, but may require a hinge replacement. A loud squealing noise can be heard coming from engine when it gets wet, or is raining. Dealer could not replicate the issue as it was not raining. Suggested replacing belts and my own cost (which I did). I will report back on this issue. The TPMS sensors were not reading tire pressures on DIC. Reset, but when ignition cycled all data was lost. Needs $230.28 module. However, since leaving the dealer tire pressures have been showing up so not sure what problem the dealer had? Have power folding mirrors. Drivers side mirror was very loose and shook excessively when driving. Reset mirrors, and is not loose anymore. However, the mirror still shakes really bad over bumps. I think there is some other issue here?
