The service guy said they may offer another car, but he wasn't authorized to discuss details. Anyone ever been through this? Thoughts on what may happen. I just don't want any hassle or BS.
Someone just made a similar post

His X5 had a build date of Jan 2011. Phillyreem, any idea when your build date was? It would be on the black plate inside the driver side front door (but I'm guessing you no longer have the car). It would be interesting to see how far back this issue goes.
