    This is what you have all been waiting for. MY CAR IS FIXED!!!!! YEA! Now, I can't tell what all was done to the car and how they fixed it because I didn't get my paperwork back I got there right at closing because wasn't done until then and it takes me almost 30 minutes to get to the dealer and no one, service manager, service writer, was there to ask questions and the tech was still inputing the repairs and I didn't want to wait around. They will be mailing my paperwork to me, so when I get it, I will let you know what all was done. I do know they ran the software update but don't know if that fixed it or if they had to fix something manually or both. All I know is the steering is quiet and so is the suspension. The steering also seems to be tighter, which was something else I complained about, ti being loose, I guess they thought it was all in my head. My car is now the new car it once was. So knock on wood it stays quiet. I'll let you know what all was done to the car as soon as I know and hopefully you can benefit from it.

    Sorry otoppero, down w/ a bit of the flu.
    Here's what's on the work order:

    2 RVU500011 Bush
    1 QMN500240 Shaft Assy
    Performed LTB 00097

    And they only put on 73mi's in the 2 wks they had it

    It's tight & quiet and as someone else posted awhile back, I can again hear the s-charger whine
    I can't emphasize how bad the dirt roads get around here during late winter freeze/thaw. Town does a good job - constantly re grading & filling in holes. But there's a lot of miles of them to maintain and so it's a constant operation on a rotational basis.
    I'll have to post some pics of my Blk/blk S/C.
    Starting clean, after the 2mi of road to get to my house (@ 15-20mph max), the S/C looks worse than most any of the off-roading photo's I've seen posted.

    BUT the only thing I hear rattling now is my teeth.

    I will definately let you know. I'm gong to call my dealer today to remind them I'm waiting on the paperwork. I have to tell you, all. We drove the car to Vegas over the weekend, it handle like a charm. Got it up to 120, before I told my hubby to slow her down. It's Kind of scary when you're not the one driving. Also, no clunking from the front end, even over an old rocky, dirt road. Now, there is some clunking noise when the car is off camber, but it seems to be coming from under the car, it's not very loud, and from what I have been told in the past, this is normal. The car is very solid and quiet in normal driving conditions, so I'm not going to worry about that noise.

    I wish you all the best in your repairs and I soon as I hear anything, I will let you know

    Thanks to all for being there for me! You're a great group of people.

    Beachy... don't leave us hanging too long. It sounds like their printer is as slow as the TECHs to get stuff completed. The "Clunk Crew" needs you.

    I think I'm the one who has been left hanging. Some not so good news, I have clunking when steering, again. It's not too bad, but it irritates me to no end that it can't stay fixed/quiet. If it gets worse, I'll take it in. I've already called LR and my service dept and told them about it, so it's a waiting game. I'm tired.

    Calling the service dept. right now to find out where my paperwork is. I'll get back to you all.

    Yep. That seems to be my car's MO. It's not that noticeable, but "I" notice it. My husband is tired of all the BS, too and tells me to let it go unless it gets worse. And, sometimes I hear a clunking noise from the front end, but it's not that often and not that loud. However, from what I understand, talking to RRS HSE owners here on the site and S/C owners on the street, the car will make noise. And I understand that, especially with all it's equipt with. I have 18 months left on my lease, then it's down the road, unless it gets worse, then I think I may hit them with a Lemon Law suit. If the car can't be fixed after a year and several trips to service it, in my eyes it will never be fixed. The car is great other than that. There's no noise over speed bumps and during normal driving, so that keeps me happy and sane. I just hope the 2008's and the 2009's don't have the same problems. I don't want another car other than a S/C RRS, but not sure if I would buy another if they have the same problems. Thus is the reason we leased instead of purchasing and now I'm really glad we didn't purchase.

    I haven't heard back from my dealer about the paperwork, but I will keep you updated.

    I guess the fact that you were on a lease has been lost by me in all of the talk about what you have been going through. So how would they pay you back for something like that? What is your monthly if you don't mind me asking?

    Leases are protected under lemon laws too. If they agree to buy the car back, any money you paid into it, including interest, down payment, license and registration all get refunded. Your lease contract would end and considered fulfilled.
