There may be an intermittent three- to five-second delay between when you turn the key and when the engine actually cranks. If the Check Engine Light illuminates, have the brake switch inspected. Otherwise, simply update the PCM software.

"False" trouble codes may cause erroneous illumination of the Check Engine Light. Updating the PCM software can often correct this concern.

Water may leak into the transmission from the dipstick tube, causing fluid contamination and a shudder during light acceleration. New seals for the dipstick tube are available; the transmission fluid should be flushed as well. If the problem lingers, a new torque converter may be needed.

The sunroof would not close completely flush with the roof of the vehicle causing a loud wind noise. I found a related TSB and it recommended pulling a fuse while the sunroof is opening, replacing the fuse and proceeding to open and close the sunroof. Worked for me!

If the battery is disconnected, the express windows will need to be recalibrated in order for the express function to work. First, run each express window to the fully-closed position. Hold the switch for at least two seconds before releasing. Repeat this procedure, running the windows to the fully-open position. If the ESP light illuminates, the steering angle may also require recalibration.

A whine type noise may develop form the engine area when the car is idling (typically in warmer temperatures, after the engine has warmed up). It's possible that the noise may be from the engine oil system and is harmless. Still, have a technician verify that the noise is nothing to worry about.
