oh man, that story pissed me off so bad. perhaps you could start a thread elsewhere with that, and get everybody to gang up against the offenders.

Well....I thought about doing that, but didn't know how appropriate it would be, this being a Bonneville forum and all. Plus, I want to wait and see what they say when they call before someone gets hurt.

LOL, I didn't mean to worry you. My situation is different. I think the turbo 3.1 runs way too hot during acceleration to be sitting there, stationary, doing 60 mph. Again, I'd still take it in as-is if I were you, and see what happens. If you don't pass, I think they give you something like 30 days (or more, don't remember the exact time frame) to get some repairs done, and then try again. Nothing to loose.

rjolly - Alright, I suppose I'll give that a try.
