    Great news!!! Too bad that you had to go through all of this stress just to get to where you should have been with your first dealer visit. But, all is well now.

    As my older brother has said, there are way too many people (not just at dealerships, but in many jobs) who either don't know what they are doing, or just don't care.

    I would say that after you get it repaired you should contact the General Manager or Service manager of the dealership which rejected you and explain what the other dealer said and why they will not be getting any more of your service business. --Bob

    Use caution with this bit of advice. Although perhaps it can work to better someones experience in the future i have seen it have quite the opposite effect to your future needs. I have seen it go another way with some very large companies where they can be pretty vindictive if you make a mid level managers life difficult with Corporate. Most of not all automotive dealers have a way of "red flagging" your warranty information so any future needs or contacts have a asterisk attached to your vin and future needs are viewed perhaps through a different lens.

    Same exact situation with my 2016 base car and locater tabs. Had no problem with my dealer helped along by Corvette Quality Control engineer it was replaced on warranty. A HUD windshield will run you $900 if you're paying for it yourself.

    Yeah you are probably right. It is something I always WANT to do, but in the end if I sleep on that thought, I probably would not do it. Just wouldn't go back. Thanks for interjecting a little bit of sensibility. --Bob

    Always a good idea to have a dealership you trust. I'm lucky that I have 3 locally: one where I bought the car (the furthest away) one where I almost bought my C7 (that I subsequently bought a used VW for my daughter) and another within 2 miles of my house (where I get recall work and had the windshield replaced).

    Glad to hear things worked out for you Beburton.
