Like Ive posted before, I also had a friend with the same car and same issue and he ALSO had the Mechatronix changed out and it resolved the problem!
Have the tech RE-CREATE/WITNESS your problem then MENTION that you have read online about the Mechatronix problem. They SHOULD take care of it if youre still under warranty!
I thought it would be the mechatronic body. Yes, they cost $5k to replace.
