OBVIOUSLY ill-fitting interior A-pillar trim bezel
Removable temporary protective plastic cover for stereo screen left on at factory when it should have been removed prior to assembly of the dashboard trim bezel.
Wrinkles in rear seat fabric that cannot be removed from being sewn incorrectly.
Rear hatch side trim panel not completely snapped in place.
Paint chips on edges
Leaking rear hatch seal
Rattling rear hatch interior trim panel from mis-fit
Transmission trouble
Multiple prematurely failing suspension components

Just to name a few...
Your first 5 complaints are relatively minor (still annoying, yes), and should have been picked up by your dealer during PDI, before you even saw the car. Your dealership has to wear some of that.
The remaining complaints have been discusses on here in multiple threads and there IS fixes for them. Not dismissing your complaints, but, a new thread started for them was not really needed... but, hey, its the MKIII section, it seems to be the "flavor of the day". LOL. carry on.
