Well, I have a service appt set up for June 4th. I found that my rear end plastic piece (basically the plastic body that covers the actual bumper, etc...) is not secured properly where it meets the metal quarter panels. The right side is not seated properly at all and doesn't align with the quarter panel. The drivers side looks okay but I can grab the plastic body and pull it away from the car with ease. I 'm not sure if that is normal. If so, that is crazy but I do know the right side in not right at all.

Going to have the reposition the tail lights while it is in. Also have them drive it to log the existence of the front end rattle at low speeds. Also going to mention that it surges ever so slightly (and intermittently) at highway speeds. I doubt they feel that because it is only occasional and very subtle but I hope they at least log the issue.
