I remember going to the auto show in Philadelphia with my Dad back in the mid 1960's and someone had apparently had an unsatisfactory experience with a navy blue Lincoln 4-door convertible. They wrote a letter to Ford in a strongly contrasting yellow paint which completely covered the body of the car and then they parked it in a very prominent location directly across from the entry to the auto show. I suspect that they may have gotten some satisfaction as a result. You might try something similar with your dealer along with a few videos posted to youtube or wherever seems appropriate.
