The fix to me is to give the car back to them. Stay tuned......
Good luck. I hope they make it right!!

It's just the German convertibles that make you gay.

Grease monkey had his engine replaced/rebuilt for the same reason. do you still have a remaining powertrain warranty on the car? If so, bitch to caddy corporate until you get a new engine. No warranty? Sell it, quick.

After arguing with them about how to fill and check the oil, they filled it correctly and said that they would either rebuild or replace the engine. We will see.
