Work with your dealer and things tend to go well. If you were a lowballer from day 1, walk in with a privileged attitude etc, trouble usually ensues. Heard it way to many times over the years when talking with service techs, managers, sales people etc. Unrealistic expectations are the biggest culprit.
Cars are VERY complex things, especially due to all the BS people want in them. The techie demanding owners are the biggest troublemakers for the auto industry at present. Frankly, look back 5-10 years. You know how grossly upped the ante on all the tech in cars??? Hyundai/Kia. technically, the electronic stuff is pretty cheap, so they went after the portion of the market that bought cheap but wanted all the goodies. This forced all the higher up the ladder brands to escalate much more rapidly than reliability could support. The germans, always feeling the need to be superior at everything, really took the bait and thus they are now experiencing major reliability issues.
