Already going to have them fix the driver's door as it has the "radio doesn't always turn off" issue...

What would you folks nominate as any other common issues that I might want to investigate before next Wed when the 5 year bumper to bumper expires?

Thanks guys...long time lurker finally had to buy one....

Just go to a dealer and have them really go through the car top to bottom.

Have them check for an oil leak "that you've seen" and see if they determine your pan gasket area needs replaced. That's a common leak.

Awesome....thanks folks!!

For what it's worth, I got two new rear shocks due to a clicking noise when stopping/starting. That and a new hub.

Might not be too late to buy an extended warrantee since the current warrantee is still active, I believe you still could get a GMPP, once your current warrantee expires you don't have this option anymore. I had bought mine on a previous car through Black Cadillac for a great deal, just google them.

Always extend the warranty. Always always always! :) Make's life simple.

Have a 09 as well, had a oil pan gasket leak for a long time now not enough to make a mess on garage floor but though I'd get it fixed before warrantys out. Have a look underneath for that.

Isn't it 4 year B.T.B. and 5-year powertrain?
