Two design flaws

Two design flaws

1) valve ticking
2) Head and valve cover bolt breakage
They are aluminum they have to be because of the magnesium used
in the block.

There are entire threads on this.

Run Flat tires you don't get a spare(and they don't last long give a harsh ride and are twice as expensive.)
Battery registration and these cars are kind

kind of quirky

Lifetime Fluid policy and extended oil change intervals.

There are major threads on all these topics.
