    that sucks that you have to keep going back to those jackasses. I hope they're at least giving you a free car while you leave it.

    Damn it dude!! that sucks, my suggestion, go to the dealership make them aware of your problem, and tell them you are not gonna take any more bullshit, you are gonna talk to corporate directly and take it to another dealership. seems to me this people dont know wth they are doing...

    Are you keeping track of all the BS you are going through, phone calls, # of visits, dates/times/what was said etc? Keep a journal and throw it at the SOBs, just j/k there :rolleyes:, no seriously it does help keep everything straight if you have to escalate the complaint plus it really helps your case when you can state dates/times/specifics, it shuts naysayers up. Good luck man, keep at em'

    UPDATE-

    k so just got back from the dealer... they changed the gasket and he said to give it 1000 miles for the slippage and vibration to go away... this kinda seems odd to me, i already did figure 8s for like 20 mins and the vibration is still there... the service guy didnt give me an invoice for the new gasket and he got kinda irritated when i asked him for one... (i have records of all maintenance for the last 2 years) i asked him what were gonna do bout the differential if it still vibrates and he said this

    "wont do anything till it gives out or locks up" i told him well i would never of had this problem if the right fluid was put in the first time.... he said "u have a problem and i dont have an answer for you, ur trying to narrow me down and theres nothing for me to say, give it 1000 miles"

    im happy i got all the invoices so i can talk to the supervisor after 1000 miles and show him all the bull shit

    I doubt it. The 5 times refers to the same problem. His first problems were vibration. The last problem was a leak.
