During the last 12 months, I've owned a 2010 35D and a 2011 35D. Both had horribly loud trunk rattling, that started at around the 2,000 mile mark.

I'm running 20" 214s on the 2011...

:-) Not sure about that, but it might be time to ditch the 35D and move onto a gasoline model.

It's becoming quite obvious that for whatever reason the 35D is suffering from problems the gas...

I guess what I'm asking is this:

1) Having the vehicle repurchased is a simple affair. After 30-days the express warranty is breached in California, and I'll certainly pass that date.

2) We...
