Passenger's side dome light stays on after car is started. Took to dealer, and it was confirmed that the dome light stays on. New part has been ordered. After purchasing the vehicle new and driving it home, noticed that the spare tire well had about a gallon of water in it. The well cover was also wet. Sponged out the water and dried out the cover. Checked the trunk lid, rear window, and wheel wells for leaks but found none. Apparently, the dealer spilled water in the trunk during the detailing of the vehicle but cannot confirm this. The cover warped and the carpet is delaminating from the fiber board. Dealer has ordered a new cover.

This car has a dual clutch transmission. We bought it new and it never shifted correctly. Sometimes it shifted correctly but then next time it shifted the transmission up and down so quickly that the car seemed to be running out of gas. We took it in to correct this problem twice, under warranty, but it wasn't repaired. We were considering using Michigan's lemon law on this car. Then the message center posted "transmission error, Service immediately. Our local dealer replaced the transmission control module, and the clutches. Now it seems to be shifting correctly. They did it under the warranty.

Car often wouldn't start. Dealer replaced battery. I have a suspicion that there is a parasitic draw on the battery... we'll see if it happens again. Driver's side speaker started vibrating and producing poor sound quality. Dealer eplaced the speaker under warranty.

Back in the dealer for an other attempt at fixing the front strut. I test drove it with a dealer technician this time. Then, the technician forgot to report the outcome of the test drive to the service advisor. Ugh. Dashboard HVAC vent rattling. Center console rattling. The dealer claims to have fixed it by replacing some parts, but both rattles still persist.
