How big a crack does it need to be before they'll do the work?

Is there a stone hit on the glass anywhere near it?

Have you applied any chemicals/solutions to the glass?

Yep. In-town, where you're making a lot of turns at relatively low-speed, you should be able to get away with a tire circumference difference. Long distances, at highway speeds, no. Realize that...

If you look closely, the trim piece wraps around the edge of the glass, and underneath the outside it has the two threaded studs to attach it to the body. I expect it's glued to the glass to keep it...

For -35F temps, I'd also want to consider a battery blanket. Some of them are heated as well.

Since it's in 4WD/AWD all the time, it's probably a lot easier for the owner -- just get in and drive. Only have to put it in low range when you go off-road and need the extra traction.

The next possibility that occurs to me is a shift solenoid going bad. But they usually set a code.

I think next step is a dealer visit.

So the sound continues for a brief period of time after the engine catches?

There are more moving parts, and so yes, there are more fluids to change. But it's not any worse than getting a RX with all wheel drive, and the GX is far more capable. Plus, IMO, the GX has a...

If the bobbing goes on more than once or twice, it's your shocks. Their purpose is to dampen-out oscillations like that.
