And yes, first time the dealership didn't have it so I had to drive it across town the next day to drop it off.

Had to leave it over night for the next 3, yes 3 days for them to complete it.
Otherwise car is running great :P
Wow twice eh? That's a pain for sure! I'm hoping it's a one time thing.
I can't drive to a different dealership, (the closest other one is 2 hours away) so I'm still just waiting. Luckily the temperature is supposed to increase over the weekend. I'm still waiting to hear from the dealer if they've even received it.
3 days to replace a block heater!? Is it a really difficult install on this car? I would definitely need a loaner if it took that long. I've been getting by bumming rides and using my company truck for the past few days with it not starting in -40. I can't keep that up for another week though.
Otherwise I have few complaints with my car, just odd squeaks and rattles that I will get fixed when it's not so cold, and my paint chipping from the tail light, again waiting till it's not -40 and covered in ice. I'm happy with my car just upset that this happened.
