Seems to be fixed for now...

...Overall very pleased with the work .... and my dealership, who has always been upstanding and ultra-fair as far as I'm concerned...
This is great news! Please keep us all updated and go here to share your story:

It did clunk; my dealer performed the TSB and it's doing well. Think of a CSM escalation as a record. He/she can coordinate with you and the dealer on any future repairs and alert other reps to the issue.

Hey, you're not a trouble-maker, Mistofoleez! Have you guys talked to your regional Customer Service Managers about this? If not, please PM me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer info; I'll send this in for further review.

I'll bring this up with the appropriate contact.

Is this the date your dealer gave you? If you'd like this to be sent to your Customer Service Manager, please PM me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer name.

For all, if you're still experiencing front-end clunks after the TSB has been done, please PM me your VIN and I'll document it appropriately.

Have a great Labor Day weekend,
