I haven't, but I haven't had major repairs on recently purchased cars. Just asking...
My wife wrecked her first Jetta in the snow and it needed major body work, the dealer gave her a newer Jetta as a loaner...... and we ended up going back there to get a new Jetta.
I assume they charged any "Loaner Fee" to our insurance company..
That's an accident though. Fewer and fewer dealers will provide a loaner unless your repairs are under a warranty. And most mechanical repairs or wear & tear related repairs aren't covered by auto insurance (though again, the warranty may cover that). Although if they are you typically are entitled to $30/day for 30 days.
