Warrenty Issues?

I am going to take my wife's 2SS LS-3, in for it's first warrenty work. August production, 1000 miles. It has a clicking in the drive train at low speeds. The radio constantly loses the current date, I believe I read there was a reprogram for that. Are there any other issues that should be looked into? Just wondering if there are any service bulletins out that I'm not aware of.
Thanks

The dealer should be able to look up any TSB's on the car. There was a link posted here somewhere to check. BUT, if you're NOT having any other issues, I wouldn't worry about it.


EDIT...found it, here you go...

theres a recal on the spoiler bolts. have them put loctite on them. also they are supposed to check the engine harness and something else. i had mine checkes last week. they can change the differential fluid under warranty too if you tell them. its in the owners manual about it being done by a certain mileage. i think 1500.

spoiler bolt issue was only on early builds.

I don't recall reading that in the manual... I'll have to check than in the morning..... you don't happen to have a page number do you?

Life is too short to drive a boring car.....

I just checked the online version of the manual and did not find anywhere that indicated the lube to be changed at 1500mi. References (rear axle) on pages 8-38, 9-30 and 10-7

edit:

page 8-17 Starting and
Operating
New Vehicle Break-In
Notice: Follow these
recommended guidelines during
the first 2 414 km/1,500 miles of
driving this vehicle. Parts have a
break-in period and performance
will be better in the long run.
For the first 2 414 km/
1,500 miles:
Avoid full throttle starts and
abrupt stops.
Do not exceed
4,000 engine rpm.
Avoid driving at any one
constant speed, fast or slow.
Do not drive above 160 km/h
(100 mph).

Avoid downshifting to brake
or slow the vehicle when the
engine speed will exceed
4000 RPM.
Do not let the engine labor.
Never lug the engine in high
gear at low speeds. With a
manual transmission, shift to
the next lower gear. This rule
applies at all times, not just
during the break-in period.
Do not participate in racing
events, sport driving schools,
or similar activities during this
break-in period.
Check engine oil with every
refueling and add if necessary.
Oil and fuel consumption may
be higher than normal during
the first 2 414 km/1,500 miles.
To break in new tires, drive at
moderate speeds and avoid
hard cornering for the first
322 km/200 miles. New tires do
not have maximum traction and
may tend to slip.
New brake linings also need a
break-in period. Avoid making
hard stops during the first
322 km/200 miles. This is
recommended every time
brake linings are replaced.

Should the vehicle be used for
racing or competitive driving
(after break-in), the rear axle
lubricant must be replaced
beforehand.
