    First day and first issues

    Not ideal first day:

    I picked up my car this morning from the dealer, drive home was good, the rest of the day not so much.

    1st got error about front left marker light that eventually went away, I assuming its a loose bulb or connector, I was planning to look at it myself before the other issue showed up.

    The other issue is Check Engine Light appeared later in the day, upon scanning with my OBDII scanner, its showing P0106 - MAP/Barometric Pressure Circuit Range/Performance Problem.

    Set an appointment with the dealer first thing on Monday morning, hopefully this can be resolved in timely manner, I read that this is pretty common issue on this engines.

    For better or worse this happened on 1st day of ownership, the bad its a first day, the good it isn't the 31st where the limited warranty runs out!

    If anybody has any input regarding this error/sensor let me know.

    p.s. you can find my introduction thread here:

    couple of updates:

    the good:
    dealer replaced MAP sensor, check engine light went away
    dealer replaced front side marker light bulb

    not so good:
    caught a stone in my brand new windshield this morning, will be replacing it, this time through my insurance, hope to get it done this week
    found both 12v outlets not working, found a penny stuck inside the front one, found blown 30amp fuse, will replace it and hopefully it will fix this issue.

    that was/still day 3
