Car is under extended warrantee but im growing suspicious that the adjuster is only approving bandaid solutions and that when the warrantee expires in 15 months, only then will i be faced with a major repair job. Any comment........i'm seriously thinking of trading it in for a new one but would prefer not to.
FYI, BMWNA allows 1qt/750mile as normal. So not much you can about it.
