Well the saga continues. They found a intermittent short between the oil idiot light and the computer after they had the car for 2 weeks. We had the car home for about 4 days. One of our pups had to go to the emergency vet in the middle of the night this past Saturday. Headlight high/low switch inoperable. Took the car back to dealer today. They are working to clear the electrical problem but found that the motor mounts were bad! They called the extended warranty people and they will be down to inspect the car. No problem, we put 51,000 miles on in 5 years, no wrecks or strange alterations. So far, out of pocket $50.00.

My only gripe since this all started is that when we went to a different dealer at the start. They did not have computer access to my cars service/repair history. They had to call our regular dealer to check service records.

my 2013 always had a 200ppm aluminum report from Blackstone, really freaked them out but I never ever had a problem and the old oil filters looked perfect when I pulled them out after 10k
