So my 2012 V6 with 34,000 miles started a intermittant drip of antifreeze on warm days this spring until recently, it became a big leak. The dealer said nothing was wrong at first. They pressure tested the sytem and found no leak. I wouldn't take the car till they test drove it again. Luckily it was 90 degrees that day and they found the leak. At first they said it couldn't be a water pump at that mileage, but that is what they replaced. Anyone else with a problem like that?

Mine was made in april 2011, so it is a very early 2012. I hope they put an improved pump in. The other problems were, rattling rear sway bar end links and the HVAC woudn't turn on for 5min every time I started the car. All fixed under warranty. Now the car is 2 months past the 36 month basic warranty, but the drivetrain is 5yr 60,000mile. One annoying feature is they used the 2011 non-adjusting headrests in early models. They are positioned too forward and push against your head. I read that they put adjustments in mid year. Lucky me! Maybe I can just bend them back slightly...

I don't use my "non-adjustable" head rests all that much, but on long road trips I found them to be among the best I've used. They support my head in an upright forward position, perfect for driving, at least for me.
