There is something seriously wrong with a dealer or manufacturer that says it takes seven weeks to ship a part... B.S.

I'm glad to hear erkbiz' experience as that's what I would expect of a premium brand.

The dealer replaced all parts associated with the TG lift assembly, including the controller, so I assume this also means the motor.

The entire repair process took 4 days and this is because the dealer first ordered and replaced the lifters when this didn't solve the problem the controller was ordered and installed. Both orders were shipped overnight by air.
