Hi all, the waranty on my parent's '99 9-3 that they got in january is about to run out (end of July, or 50,000mi- and the ticker is at about 49500). Tomorrow we take it in for its 50k service (basically an oil change, 60k is the biggie), and there are some things we hope to get fixed while the car is still under warranty. What are some of the things that we can hope to get fixed and what are things they won't fix? The list goes as follows: 1. The paint on the hood is pretty chipped (stones?), its easy to spot at 5-10ft away (the paint is black, very much contrast!), and was not very evident upon purchasing it because of it's fresh wax job (and maybe they used a chip stick? think of it as lipstick for a car). 2. There is a line missing out of the SID (radio) about 75% of the time (I've heard that its usually a simple connector problem). 3. The passenger side headlight wiper doesn't get reset half of the time (when you let go of the washer, the wiper just sits where you leave it). 4. AM radio does not recieve any channels. 5. The molding that run along the bottom of where the doors close is loose (both sides maybe?). So what do you think? Anyone else run into this with their 9-3? Did it get fixed under warranty? Other than this the 9-3 seems to be a fantastic car! :-) Thanks a lot guys, -Chris '99 9-3 '94 900SE V6 '87 9000S
