Hi DeeDubz,

I want to look into this for you and check out ways I can help. Send a PM my way with your information and I'll get to work. Be sure to include your VIN, preferred servicing dealership, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll do the rest!

Crystal

Doubt they would BS you as this is a well known problem, and updated parts have been in production for a long time now. We keep plenty in stock, though most vehicles have already had them replaced by now.

So i understand, you havent taken it in but you think they wont fix it ?

And presume this is on previous yr models only as I've not heard it and the wife has not beat me amongst the head complaining about it. :-)

In fact, she said last nite that she still loves her sport after 7000 miles or so!

Good luck on your repair !
