Throttle Positioning Sensor bad, had to have sensor replaced and a software update applied to the Engine Control Module to remedy the problem (Check Engine Light, car went into limp mode, would not go over 20KM/h) Valve Cover Gasket had to be replaced as it was leaking oil on the alternator and could cause further issues with the alternator if left unchecked. Front Lower Ball Joints loose, causing knocking noise in the suspension. Recommended replacing as soon as possible (by the dealership). While replacing the rotors and brake pads myself, examined it, was loose, but not to the extent they said Power seat switches working very intermittently, not working more often than they do. The motor for the rear window power sunshade stopped working, sunshade stuck in a partially open position. Dealer wanted $918 to fix, found the part for $5 shipped, will tackle it myself one of these days.

Sunroof would not close correctly. Finally watched a uTube vidoe and saw that I needed to lift up the broken track on the sun roof (made of plastic) because it had broken and would no longer close. It is now closed but I doubt I'll be using the roof again. Apparently it's over $1K to actually repair the broken plastic rail because the roof lining needs to be removed.
