Took the car in numerous times for a bad vibration in the panoramic moon roof. After the 4th time, they finally agreed to replace it. It was in the shop for about a week for the repair. There is still a slight vibration, but definitely not as bad as it was. I'm just wondering if after about 12 months, the bad vibration doesn't reoccur.
