I don't have any rference handy, but if you don't get an answer let me know
and I'll look it up at home.

Two points. One, welcome to the world of the urQ. Two, check into
independent shops. I used to use the dealer here, and only wish I had
switched long ago. I find the dealer woefully uninformed on this car, and
I probably could have saved well over $1000 over the past few years in
unnecessary or overpriced repairs.
I did save more than that amount by buying the parts from IPC in many
cases, and having them drop-shipped to the dealer. The dealer wasn't happy,
but that really didn't concern me. For some parts that aren't too safety
critical or normal wear items, I have found a few good wrecking yards from
this list. The ones I use ship the part, so they're very convenient.
BTW, what are the items of deferred maintenance?
