Not really a cosmetic issue. Chronic fuel door non-release (unlocks, but a thin object such as a key is required to open door). Lubricated by dealer, the problem persists but only manifests itself on an occasional basis. 
C $1139 Shattered front driver's-side inner fender sleeve due to -30 degrees. Consequent exposure of internal front bumper surface along bottom of wheel well resulted in accumulation of compacted snow/ice at that corner, cracking bumper bottom. 
27280 mi Defective sunvisor. Minor problem. 
36400 mi Inboard, passenger side, dash louver was replaced. Prior to repair, this vent had been stuck in the closed position. 
2000 mi Broken drivers side sun visior 
13200 mi Rattling noise at idle. Suspected cause was installation of performance springs during September 2010. Adjustment made, rattle gone. 
16000 mi Water leaked into area where spare tire is stored in trunk. There are two rubber grommets in this area for drainage and one appears to have been defective and allowed water to pool below the spare. 
20000 mi Water leaked into rear spare tire compartment for at least the second time I've noticed. Removed grommets and sealed them with a heavier grade silicone. 
27300 mi Black trim on roof had faded and peeled exposing metal underneath on both sides of the vehicle. Trim replaced with updated trim made of a different material all together.
