Apparently it's a known issue with our engines and happens to 5s and 7s as well.

Roger - VERY IMPORTANT - did you go through insurance at all??? If so, your car will show up on carfax as being in an accident and you need to get compensation from the dealer's insurance co for diminished value on the car. Take if from someone who's been through this more than once.

If you're not sure, pay for the carfax report on your car and see if it's listed as being in an accident.

Good. I would've thought so, but wanted to be sure my friends are covered.
