First of all, thank you everyone for your continued great points and suggestions. I hope there are other newbies who read this and can benefit from the insights.
I'm sorry for any confusion mark5032. We live equidistant to about 8 dealerships and I had a discount coupon for touch up paint so I was at one today to pick some up and struck up a conversation with the parts and service guys and relayed what I had been learning. I am completely happy with the service department where I purchased the car and will certainly be using them as my first choice to work on it. They have been in the loop on all my concerns and I have had great communication with them about it. So there's no worries in that regard. I just like to take every opportunity to learn a little more and gather different perspectives.
