And their excuse for the high price would be "we have to charge this much, all the parts come from Europe ..." If it comes down to it, I can get a lot of parts off of ebay or Rockauto.com. I only have 1,000 miles till the bumper to bumper warranty expires. So far no problems, hopefully none in the next few years.
