As I mentioned on another thread, I'm taking the car to a dealer on Monday and I am 1,000 miles shy of running out of the 3/36 warranty.

Anything you guys think I should mention the dealer to check while it's there?

Thanks.

Why are you taking the car in?
You could ask to make sure all the recalls are up to date. They do that automatically, I'm sure.

I feel your pain. My '14 Spark EV just ran out of the bumper-to-bumper warranty.
I was searching for something, anything, to get repaired.
I thought I had a TPMS sensor reading one tire high,,, but I was wrong!:p I measured the tires with a new digital gauge.
Oh well... Not one issue in that time.:)

I am taking the car for the clicking sound while turning on the front axles, creaking sound on the rear suspension, infotainment resetting itself or lagging, overly sensitive forward collision system (constantly warning of an impending collision when there isn't even a car in front of me) and a small trim piece that fell off the rear view mirror. Also, my wife told me that the car shut itself down while she was driving it.

The B to B may be running out, but you still have the powertrain warranty running. Powertrain includes a lot of things, just not cosmetic items and normal wear items.

Fluids check. A lot of owners, including myself, have seen the high voltage battery coolant level drop and when it gets below the seem in the reservoir a service message appears and you will not be able to charge the car. This should be covered by powertrain warranty, but preventative maintenance is better than an unscheduled dealer visit.

Check the dash buttons all work.
My lock/unlock buttons are sticking. And I use them like twice a year, so I would never have known there's an issue otherwise.
Same with CD player. Literally never used it. Should make sure it works either way.

My shortlist is
-infotainment/HVAC not acknowledging buttons intermittently
-rear axle creak
-lock/unlock buttons stuck

The first two have been in before but "unable to replicate", but I've been collecting video and audio recordings to show what's going on the other 99% of the time (as it always seems to work fine the day I bring it in)

FYI,
That coolant reservoir has that safety cover on it to keep owners from adding coolant to that system.
You want to know if it is leaking internally.
No "preventative maintenance" should be done to that coolant system.
