CarolinaGirl, it's not just CT. See my previous posting. My experience in California is exactly the same as yours. I would be very surprised if it were not also true in the rest of the country.
Some people have had excellent experiences, as you will note if you read the postings in this forum. Others, not so good. As I said, it all depends on the dealers attitude. The important thing to remember is that no dealers are under any obligation to provide warranty work. I'm not even sure if the selling dealer is obligated, but apparently, most or all do, although not always happily or efficiently. In my opinion, when there is a warranty problem, the dealers are usually the bad guys.
