I forwarded these details to my tech adviser, guys.

Kabigon & unfocused1,

I want to make sure this is reviewed with your regional customer service manager. Please send me a PM with your VIN, full name, best daytime phone number, approximate mileage, and dealer name/state.

I shot you another PM, sdwcam01; please see your inbox.

She did however say that she would get my closest dealer to contact me... which they did a day later, I was busy and missed the call, and they didn't leave a message...
agamben0,

Thanks for the shout-out. I want the confidence in your ride to be restored, so I sent a note to Mary and PMd you with the follow-up info.

Cory
