535x water damage in trunk

My 2014 has been totaled by Liberty Mutual due extensive water damage to electrical components in trunk - I am under water - literally - by $20k - read about 2014 legal agreement that cost BMW $477 million to address same problem - seems that they - BMW- didn't fix the problem and customers left holding the bag -
Going to my dealer tomorrow to demand some kind of positive response from the company HQ -

That's not much of a legal agreement addressing this same problem leaving the customers with no knowledge of damage or risk; can you say toothless. So, wonder where is YOUR misunderstanding (that's an imperative and not an interrogatory.)

Inspect your risk pathways regularly, as often as needed to mitigate risk and damage. Otherwise it's kind'a like starting up a power plant and locking the doors while it rumbles on at full power.

Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer: there is nobility in preserving it coolly and proudly through long youth, until at last, in the ripeness of instinct and discretion, it can be safely exchanged for fidelity and happiness.

Eschew eristical argumentation. I am responsible for what I write, not for your understanding of it.

Appreciate the responses - and imperative around risk mitigation - but it runs smack into the problem of "the customer doesn't know what they don't know" problem - I'm off to BMW land this morning and see how it plays out -
