I have made an appointment for vibrations I am feeling while driving highway speeds. The MY is still under warranty, I got a message saying that their will be a $52 validation testing fee. The fee will only apply if the vibrations are not a warranty item. If it is caused by a warranty item, it will be waived. Because I personally do not know the issue, should I be arguing about this fee being waived regardless? Anyone with the same experience? They will have to test the vehicle for sure.

If they don't fix anything, I have a hard time paying for someone else to just put more miles on your car and deplete your battery.

Rebuttle with a $100/mile taxi fare unless the issue is under warranty 🤣
