GT JTD First Service

I'm just about to book my GT in for it's first 12K / 12 month service. Having read various threads here on brake / suspension problems covered under warranty & 'engineering advisories', I am trying to get a list together of things to look out for...

Aside from a stutter from the engine @ 2K RPM, that I now think may be Air Flow Meter related (thanks to reviewing threads on AO), and the fact that my brakes are lacking in initial bite (especially when cold), are there any other things to check that may not yet have gone wrong, but are regular warranty repairs on the GT or cars with the JTD engine?

The car is 12 months old with 11K miles.

Thanks in advance.

Re: GT JTD First Service

To be honest, I think the engine is basically bullet-proof. My car had a track-rod end replaced under warranty at the last service and it's getting a new check-strap for the dirver's door next week. Other than that it's not really needed anything.
