Also this thread has a good checklist.

Things to check on delivery

Agree. I try to time it just right. Oh wait... this means there are 3 of us left that actually use turn signals!

3. She noticed today, when using the cargo net it blocks the power tailgate button.
Interesting. I haven't even taken mine out of the bag yet.

4. Reflection of HVAC vent trim in outside mirrors.
Could not agree more! I had forgotten about that when I wrote up my review. Fortunately, it's only an issue during the day. Unfortunately, most of my driving is during the day! This might be the one advantage to the time change coming up!

I think the beeping is enough that while I do use the light and beep option, I rarely pay attention to the light as when I'm about to turn, I put my turn signal on no matter what even if there is a car there. I use my mirrors too and if there is a beep I know to wait for the car to pass.

3. She noticed today, when using the cargo net it blocks the power tailgate button.

Not an issue with mine, the sides kind of bow away from the cabin wall.

4. Reflection of HVAC vent trim in outside mirrors.
I have read a lot of people have this issue, I don't know if it is my seating position or my tinted windows (had 20% done to match the back windows) but it has not been an issue for me thus far.

I was referring to the three blink feature of the turn signals when tapping the stalk, not the blind-spot monitor. We always signal lane changes if there are cars around, blind spot notification or not. The three blinks often doesn't seem like enough in some situations.

I haven't been in the back of the D since she mentioned it, so just going off what she found. Agreed that not everyone will find this annoying.

Absolutely true. I need to drive it more to see if I notice it as much as she does. She first noticed it on the way home from the dealer last week. I could see the reflection in the driver's side mirror from the passenger seat based on her settings.
