Sometimes when car slows to a stop transmission shifts early causing a jerking sensation via engine braking. Fix would require valve body change for $1500. Software updates can help, looking into DIY. Will probably end up living with it. The stereo sound has gone out twice already, but always comes back after the ECU resets itself. Satellite reception is poor - apparently a poor ground connection in the antenna is common, but require removal of the headliner to fix. stereo stopped producing sound, but restarted again. This apparently is a fail safe to protect the audio system, and occurs when a component has an issue. Diagnosing difficult so living with it. Apparently this is not uncommon.

Jan 2012 Check engine light came on. Car idled rough. They Removed and Replaced the Intake manifold. Check Engine light came on. It was diagnosed as a bad Catalyst. Covered by emissions warranty.

A computer malfunction caused the misfiring, which caused the cat to pack up.
