Post Oddities

My car is in the shop. I am a bit obsessive, but are these things happening with anyone else?

My cup holder lid is malfunctioning. It isn't opening and closing properly. It is hard to close and sometimes you have to "wack" it to get it to open. When I reported it, the service advisor didn't seem surprised.

The roof molding on the driver side by the rear window is not firmly attached. (It has a little wiggle when you press down on it.). The other side is firm.

The dreaded iPhone Media Adapter overheats my iPhone 4s. I don't think the fan is working. Is this a problem with the phone or cradle?

...if that's all I have to nag about, must be a pretty awesome car!

I purchased a cable jive docxtender premium cable to retain connectivity (& full media access) while in my massive otter box case; this may help you if you're concerned about heating - plus it gives you access to the phone. Btw, I had to open the doc and remove the springs so that the cable wouldn't be pushed out of the doc after attaching it.
