Warrenty Issues?

My wifes 2010 SS is nearing the 3 year mark. The car only has 1400 miles on it. I have a problem with the radio and learned on this forum that I need an updated program, which I have an appointment for. Since the car has so few miles I am concerned there may be things that have not popped up yet. Are there any updates that I should be asking the dealer to do before warrenty runs out? I know they won't just start rebuiling stuff thats not broken, but sometimes theres things that can be reprogrammed etc if you ask.
Thanks Pat

Off the top of my head:

1. BCM re-programming for the AC compressor issue etc
2. make sure you get newest hardware module at the same time you do the software see my thread: https://www.moderncamaro.com/forum/el...im-update.html
3. rear axle washers for clicking noises

I already printed out the radio info and have told the dealer I need the new stuff, our radio has a CB code which the bulliten says is no good.
I took it in once becuase it clicks at low speed like in a parking lot, worse hot. It's a six speed if that makes any differance. Dealer had a tech take it for a spin and said he couldn't hear anything. Imagine that. Is this the axle washer issue?
Haven't noticed any AC problems.
Are there service bulletins out on these things?
Thanks very much for your help, I would like to get things in order before 3 year stuff is out of warrenty. 9/14/2012
