I think that, under the circumstances, buy back is a fair solution, as long as the problem is corrected in the '09 model.
My buy back was fairly straight forward as it only had 5K miles on it. I believe the 2009s have the same issue with the panoramic leak potential. As I stated earlier, when I trickled water into the sunroof track on the right side, it ended up on the floor of the hatch. This is a design flaw, no matter what anyone says.
