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

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 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.
