If they don't buy the car back, go to a lawyer specializing in lemon law and you should have a new car very soon. The 4 attempts/30 days is an automatic lemon, so you've already qualified for that....

Run flat repair or replace the $500 question.

Just had a flat myself... Dealer price was $524 in So. FL. Thank god I had the tire/wheel insurance. No deductible, paid $1000 for 3 years. One more flat and the insurance paid for itself!
