In the US, for cars, we have a national "Lemon Law."
It's been a while, but as I remember there are certain criteria, that when met, the manufacturer must give you a new vehicle with a modest charge for mileage driven. My memory says that after 3 unsuccessful attempts at repairing the same problem, the law kicks in.
As for dealer making money on warantee, I doubt it. The factory flat hourly rate is usually ridiculously low. And the factory will almost never pay for 2 attempts to fix the same problem.
Hopefully the great country of my grand father, Austrailia, has a similar law..
