I know the car is almost 6 years old , so is it normal that one of the doors makes a creaking sound when opening ? Also the car has a panoramic sunroof and the roof opens/closes find but again some creaking sound when the sunblind closes. Do you think it will be better with some WD-40 ?
I've owned it about 18 months and a friend owned it from new. Biggest things it's had done has been the ABS pump under warranty, all the suspension springs replaced, a probe in the DPF system and lots of tyres! It has done 114000 miles though....
My friend ran it all its life on Continental tyres which wore pretty quickly, especially on the edges. I use cheaper brands and so far have put around 10,000 miles on the fronts and are about 50% worn.
I replaced a door check strap to cure the creaking door problem on mine, cost 16 for the part from a main dealer.

Other than that, it's been serviced every 9000 miles and used......
