The steering is also severely damaged: it pulls from side to side depending on the slope of the road and is hard to control when the road is bumpy. The dealer noted that pieces of the car became fused and had to be ripped apart. I think the wastegate defect profoundly damages much of the engine. The thing is incredible turbo lag and this is no longer anything like the vehicle I agreed to buy.

I no longer want to wait to assemble a class proceeding, I will be suing on my own. Best of luck to everyone else. I will still consider posting my statement of claim as a template.
Do yourself a favor and keep it to yourself until its over. Another guy broadcast his legal issues here and it severely affected the outcome.
