Squeal from right front. Dealer replaced front pads/rotors warranty TSB. Rear pads over half worn on one side, I paid to replace as tech said they wouldn't make next PM. I inspected used parts, really didn't like the wear pattern. I usually get far better wear; tech said hill hold and brake programming out of my control results in reduced friction material life. Now front squealing again; IR temp gun showed 40 degree delta between right and left rotors after commute. Car now back at dealer.

Car made a clunking sound in the front driver's side while turning or backing up. Dealer replaced the control arm brushings and upper engine mount. Car smells like mildew after washes, rain, being parked outside. Dealer wanted to change the sunroof drains at a cost of $700. I refused to pay that much to correct a design flaw and will look to replace the drains elsewhere.
