Welcome to the forum, Joerg; congratas on the new ride! As you can see, thereís a very helpful community here. Iím confident your dealer will take care of you.

Does it feel worse than when you were last at the dealer? I have your info from before, so get a hold of me with your current mileage and Iíll have this reviewed for you.

I want to see your concern taken care of. Iím able to send this up to your regional customer service manager. Please send me a PM with your full name, best daytime phone number, VIN, mileage, and dealer details.

Thanks so much for the shout-out, Some Guy From NY. Please keep me in the loop.
