I have a 2015 V60 T5 E-drive that started burning oil at around 40,000 miles. It was reported to the dealer (under the 5-year warranty) who "fixed" the problem at around 45,000 miles. At 50,000 miles (and three months after the 5-year warranty expired) the check oil light came on again and the dealer now says that the pistons need replacing.

Consumer Reports web site shows complaints from other owners regarding "improperly manufactured pistons". The dealer is offering to split the $3000 bill with my part being $500. While $500 is better than $3000 it still seems unreasonable to me. If there is a known manufacturing problem AND the problem was reported to the dealer while the car was still under warranty shouldn't Volvo cover the whole cost? Where do I go from here? Any advice would be appreciated.
