Most of the issues indicated above seem to be affecting only a few cars.
  1. Check your tire pressure, as they are probably overinflated.
  2. Buy snow tires, you are in Denver (though the OEM worked fine for me last winter in a couple of small storms, I just bought snow tires/rims)
  3. Check your oil, you probably won't see the oil light come on, but if it consumes oil, which it probably won't, top it off. I would also either do your own oil change or make sure your dealer knows not to overfill the crankcase and that they use the correct oil when they fill it.
  4. Read about different theories -- how to break in the engine and seat the rings. I would not baby it completely, nor run it up to the red line.
  5. Winter is coming, your MPG's will dive a bit, especially with winter blends. Don't fret, wait until spring, after break-in, and with the non-winter blend fuels, to really get an idea of the MPG this car will provide.
