Nah i haven't gotten that - the battery light comes on sometimes when i stop and the lights inside alwayz flicker / surge. It still drives fine so im not worried about it. If it stop all together or all my lights go out i'll get that done.

SVT4Life - get the reflash.
I've noticed some jerking. I notice it moew when the engine is cold. I think it might be the surging everyone talks about that is supposed to be fixed with a reflash.
