I'm wondering why some people are getting relatively little pushback from the dealers (or at least the dealers have a good plan of attack in mind) while others are getting nowhere. My dealer put in some fuel injector cleaner and while I've noticed a slight acceleration improvement, the shifting hiccups are still present. Next step is to go back in and have the regional rep go for a drive with me.

I know SirLoins posted his dealer info, would everyone else that has gotten their mechatronics or tranny replaced be willing to post their dealer and SA info? That might be helpful for those of us that haven't gotten resolution yet.
