I had the same issue. They replaced the muffler that was cracked inside, as well as the heat shield. Problem solved.
They even showed me the pieces as they fell from the muffler.
A common problem with this vehicle and covered as long as it is within the 36 month/36,000 mile bumper to bumper deal.

plus one on the cooling fan problem. if it was low on charge then as you slow down, condensor temps and line prressures would raise therefore it would cool at low speed and and not when moving since the incoming air would drop system temp,reducing line pressure and then cusing compressor to cycle. the auxillary cooling fans must be on whenever a/c is on, if not, thats your problem. get this taken care of because if you get stuck in traffic, your engine will overheat also if fans are not running

When they changed the oil they did not reset the light. The car needs to be told when the oil is changed.
when the warning comes on press the setup button. it should say press reset if new. Press the reset button. It should say if new oil hold reset. Press and hold the reset button until the display changes to oil life set to 100%.

There is less oil distributed to the engine in idle position than when you drive. So when the oil light comes on, you may have to put a little oil in your car. While driving, the oil reading may be enough for your sensors in your car to not send a signal, but when you stop and the oil pressure goes down, it may not be enough and that's when the light comes on. When you drive 20 to 30 minutes, your oil gets thinner because it is warm. That also will send a different reading to the sensors. You may want to try a thicker oil (instead of 10/40 try 5/20 ... ask before you do this!).
