jenryhl - this is not the right approach the dealership should have.
Do not let this slide. For what you paid for the vehicle, they should either replace the vehicle, or give you the money back if they can't fix it.
However, it will take a while.
You need to get in contact with a "Lemon" law lawyer, and depending on which state you are, you may get a case.
If this makes you feel better some how, in the last 12 months I have replaced for very similar issues 3 ( three ) Toyota Sequoias... same story, a design flaw, which can't be fixed.
Cars these days are rushed to the market without too much testing, if any at all.
