That's awesome! Please let us know about what your dealer did to address your issues.Beachy said: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.
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.otoppero said: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.
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.otoppero said:BACK ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate to know exactly what you are going through. If they try to pull that well we tried everything BULLSH#T so it must just be normal crap tell them where to shove it.
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.otoppero said: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?
Of course I don't mind. Well, seeing how I got the car for Christmas, I'm not quite sure how much the payments are, and the lease is paid by his company, but I did hear my husband mention to someone that they weren't more than my Navigator and the payment on that was $1,100 a month.otoppero said: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.

I got a fax from LRNA and they have agreed that my vehicle qualifies for repurchase under the NJ lemon law. I'm sending them all the finance papers so they can calculate the repurchase amount.NY S/C said:I had the bushings replaced in Dec and the noise is back again. After 6 attempts and 21 days in the shop, I just sent my certified letter to LRNA to allow them one more attempt to fix this before I lemonPrayn4Sno said:Good news, I just got my truck back and I am happy to report the "clunk" is finaly gone. I had a tech ride with me to verify the noise and they replaced 2 worn sway bar bushings #RBX500280 (Left & right) The tech also said they have replace more than a couple of these already. After a long year of listining to that noise I can say again my truck is silent.....for now. They also replace a leaking coolant hose at the thermostat, and replaced my steering wheel because it was "delaminating."
otoppero said:Congrats... What do you plan to move to?
Thank you both. Aside from those noises, I love driving my RRS. I'll keep you posted with what I end up buying next.Beachy said:Congrats to you, NY S/C. I'm only sorry you had to go through what you did and I'm sorry it ended the way it did. Good luck to you and your new purcahse. I'll keep you posted on my car. I plan to go back to my service depart afer I return from vacation in April to have the steering noise fixed, again, but not sure if I'm going to have them attempt to fix the front end noise again. Also, my air conditioning is starting to make squeaqking noises as well, so that will be fixed then, too. And the noises keep coming..........
I sitll love my car.
