I am happy to report that I had the hood bubbling issue on my used '17, and it was addressed properly and promptly. I contacted Paulding CJDR when I discovered the issue and they had me bring it by ASAP (same day) to have a look. My car was approaching 36K, and they decided it would be cleaner to get it fixed before the bumper to bumper ran out. The body shop manager came out himself and recorded my VIN and took photos of all of the door edges (to prove no excessive corrosion) and the damage. A new hood was requested and authorized. Once the hood arrived, the dealer painted it and contacted me to come in to swap hoods. Not only did they change and adjust the hood (perfect body lines) correctly, but they COMPLETELY detailed my car to new standards. Total time consumed with this was about a half day counting both trips to the dealership, which I consider acceptable. While having this issue to begin with is not ideal, my experience with the remedy was quite good.
Now what about these grinding sliding doors that constantly reverse direction.....
