First, thank you for your services, from your handle I presume your Military
.. Ft. Dix by any chance?..
Sorry, to learn you that your having such a major problem...dealer induced problem? Thats crazy what your going through. If you don't mind me asking which (NJ?) dealership did you buy and or have service performed? PM me if you would not like to make it public.
P.S. MIke from the Jersey Strokers section of this forum organizing a GTG in Bordentown this Saturday on Dec 23rd. This would be great discussion with the good folks here.
