    on my 2014 did all the recall ( had a lot) + on warranty I had, passenger tie-rod loss, pignon rack was liking, check engine was on and the mechanic told my the code said to much air in the engine and after bring 3 time my car for lack off heating ( even hard time to unfreeze the windshield) i got my heat core changed.
    Good point the warranty work.

    Same issue here! The last few weeks in cold weather, after setting over night, the car sounds like marbles in a coffee can. It's God awful sounding. Only doesn't here and there after it's been setting over night and/or in cold weather. Freaks...me...out. My best guess is momentary oil starvation.

    Yes, it takes a couple of seconds when it’s that cold to get the oil distributed throughout the engine. It’s not going to damage the engine unless it’s like -45 then even 0w-20 is too heavy of a oil. Might have to opt for that ultra thin 0w-16 or add a cup of Marvel Mystery Oil to the crankcase.
