Answer
Debbie,
  As stated in my Profile, I'm a Parts Specialist, Not a tech but will offer these thoughts for your consideration.
  Trouble codes gives one "direction" as to what the problem MAY be. Yes, the code P0106 is MAP sensor AREA! It could be a bad MAP sensor, a dirty connection, a burnt wire or something else.
  With that being said, if I went to a barber shop and got a lousy hair cut, I probably wouldn't go back. If I went to a dentist and he pulled the wrong tooth, I probably wouldn't go back. So why do you keep going back to the same dealership if they can't fix the car properly? I hope they are doing it NO CHARGE!!
  I found this site that you may want to look at. It specifically identifies Code P0106 and possible fixes for the problem.

Heretofore, I will NOT answer any mechanical question. I am not qualified and can only offer speculations. You are better served by others that are true Techs. With that being said, please only ask about parts and locating obsolete Auto Parts. Thank you. I have the ability to locate quite a few mechanical parts for American made vehicles fron the 1900`s to present. Some are OEM and some are aftermarket. This would include engine, brake and chassis parts. Body parts and trim are VERY difficult to find but you may inquire. If you need assistance in repair, I have illustrated books for major American manufacturers that show some illustrations BEFORE 1974. If needed, I can supply repair manuals for your specific vehicle. PLEASE REMEBER I'M A PARTS SPECIALIST, NOT A TECH!! Thank you.. Skip
