What was the outcome? We're always concerned when it comes to...everything!

I believe I responded to this in another thread. When do you expect to return?

Sounds like a plan! Is this your first oil change? Use these in the future to save on routine service: If you'd like, please drop me a line (PM) with your VIN, mileage, phone #, and dealer info. I'll forward this info to your region's Customer Service Manager.

I'm sure they'll do it for you, but please bring it up. Are you still experiencing the wiper noise?

It sounds like the taillight was improperly placed or tightened too much; is this correct?

Woohoo! Now, I'll perform a thorough light inspection on my car.

All of you know how to reach me if this is still an issue. As I've mentioned to nerdrage, please PM me those details and I'll look into it.
