Well, if there's a positive side to this, at least the dealer is taking care of the car at no charge to you.
The bad side is you have the inconvenience of buying a $50,000 car that has probably been in the shop more than you've driven it.
I think the lesson to be learned here is that it is probably not a good idea to buy a car in the first year of its model run.
